Licorice

Licorice is derived from the root of the plant, that is a legume, native to southern Europe and Asia. Although it isn't botanically related to anise or fennel, it's a source of similar flavoring compounds. The sweetness in licorice comes from glycyrrhizin, which is thirty to fifty times sweeter than sugar; however, its flavour is less immediate and lasts longer. Licorice has been used extensively in Herbal Medicine for a variety of conditions and ailments. It has a sweet taste and cooling action. In Ayurveda licorice is used as calming for vata, cooling for pitta, and can liquefy the mucus of kapha. Added to herbal tea, it gives a naturally sweet taste.

I drank it like a tea,  i was surprized at how it came in the bag as it was long strands;  the flavour comes out and the tea is delious, I really recommend buying some to drink as a hot tea
