    What Are the Aromas of Licorice Stick?

    The licorice stick is characterized by its distinct and complex aromas, combining sweet and anise notes with a slight bitterness. When used in cooking, it releases warm and comforting flavors reminiscent of anise and black licorice. These aromas can vary in intensity depending on the cooking method and infusion time.

    The Botanical Origin of Licorice

    The licorice stick comes from the root of the Glycyrrhiza glabra plant, a species of licorice mainly native to the Mediterranean regions and Western Asia. This plant belongs to the Fabaceae family and grows in humus-rich soils, often near watercourses. Licorice roots contain natural compounds that give the plant its distinctive sweet taste and characteristic aroma. Once harvested, the roots are cleaned, dried, and sometimes used in whole stick form or ground into powder.

    Licorice, a Miraculous Product

    The word licorice is derived from the Latin glycyrrhiza, which literally means "sweet root". Linnaeus retained the Greek name as the botanical genus name for licorice. Theophrastus wrote in 300 BC that licorice has "the power to suppress thirst if kept in the mouth". At that time, the combination of licorice, easy to chew, and long-lasting dry cheese was a great provision for traveling nomads.
