However, it is the root of the plant that is used most often. This bulk one-pound bag from Starwest® Botanicals will provide enough licorice to be used for anything desired of such a multipurpose plant. Origin: South Africa.

I love licorice root tea and I was very excited to find this. I was disappointed at the bitterness. It is naturally sweet but not enough to outweigh the bitterness. Wish I knew if I was doing something wrong. Sad to have wasted my money.

I have ordered licorice from an online herbal company and this is a much better value. It is also processed better. The other licorice was in larger (1 inch ) chunks and this is more cut up and easier to make tea out of.

Warning! This is Tea ... not Powder!
This is very bad marketing by Swanson and I am very disappointed by them. I bought this with the assumption that it was powder, because, what else would it be? It is loose-cut tea. There is only one place in the description where it refers to pouring water over it for tea. And, that is in such a place that I would not typically look at that section. I have to believe that I am not the only one that made that mistake. I was very disappointed when I opened the product. And, I tried grinding it in my coffee grinder and as much time as I spent grinding, it never got fine enough to use as a powder. I called Swanson, explained, and asked the rep to please change this labelling for your future customers, but the rep was only concerned with refunding me, which she did and I am appreciative for that. But, that was 3 months ago and the product description is still the same ... lacking any real "description". It should say "loose-leaf tea" in the product name.
