Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra), whose genus name is appropriately derived from the Greek words meaning "sweet root," is used worldwide as a flavoring for foods, beverages and assorted confections. However, as early as the third century B.C., herbalists valued the beneficial properties licorice root had to offer, traditionally using the herb to support upper respiratory health.
Alvita Licorice Root Tea is made with premium-quality, organic licorice root, and exudes the delightfully sweet flavor and aroma most people associate with black licorice.
Preparation: Place one tea bag in a cup and add 8 oz of boiling water. Cover and steep for 15 minutes. Gently squeeze tea bag and remove.
In 1922, a group of alfalfa enthusiasts who believed that alfalfa's rich green foliage and deep root system contained "Vitamines" and minerals essential for good health innovated the way the plant was consumed by providing alfalfa in tea bags. The abbreviation of alfalfa and vitamins quickly led to the brand name "Alvita," and thus the Alvita Tea Company was born.
