  • 2 tsp dried licorice root (chopped into 1-inch pieces)
  • 8 ounces of water (filtered)
  • 1 tsp honey or sugar (optional)


  • To make licorice root tea, bring 8 ounces of water to a boil in a stainless steel pot.
  • Add the licorice root pieces to the water. Soon after you do so, take down the steel pot from the stove and allow the mixture to steep for 5-6 minutes
  • Strain the mixture, removing the licorice roots. Add honey or sugar for flavor, if you want, and enjoy!


No more than 3 cups of licorice root tea should be consumed per day, in order to prevent unwanted side effects.
