The liquorice is a herbaceous perennial with very aromatic roots. We suggest you try these roots, called liquorice sticks. These sticks have to be chewed and sucked at length, to make the most of their aromas and benefits. These liquorice sticks are indeed well known for their properties for the respiratory tract, stomach-aches or hypotension. They are also very much appreciated by smokers anxious to stop smoking cigarettes.
