    Question about licorice root used
    October 28, 2011
    I love and make this tea frequently but I have a question about the type of licorice root used.

    Recently the FDA issued health warnings about the glycyrrhinzin in licorice, especially for people over 40. (In fact the Latin name for licorice is Glycyrrhiza glabra).

    I am wondering if the licorice root listed in the ingredients for this tea is deglycyrrhizinated?

    If not, in light of recent findings, there might need to be a health warning on the packaging.
