Liquorice root is a famous Chinese medicinal herb that can be used to add natural sweetness to any drink.

Liquorice is a MAO inhibitor and contains Glycyrrhizic acid for normal function of the adrenal glands. This gives Liquorice mood enhancing and stress relieving benefits. It has a whole host of other purported health benefits and in Chinese Medicine it is commonly used to relieve wheezing, coughs and asthma.
