Whenever you experience irritation of a sore throat or your respiratory tract, Licorice is the herbal tea that you want to drink. Licorice contains healing materials called glycosides. These glyocides break down the tough mucus in the respiratory tracts. This way you can breath easier and start to recognize that you need to cough less. Licorice has also an anti-inflammatory effect and provides improvement with digestion problems and stomach aches. The body can retain moisture by using licorice. Therefore, it is better to not take licorice often or too much, especially for children, pregnant women and people with a high blood pressure. Licorice has a gold-brown color and a sweet scent. It is not necessary to add honey or sugar for most people, because of its liquorice flavour. Advice for making the tea: water of 100 C, 2 grams a cup, allow to draw for about 5 minutes.
