I make tea daily with the powder as a way to soothe a sensitive stomach lining. It so happened I bought organic DGL tablets the first winter I got a stress-based ulcer, however this past winter I wanted to try a licorice powder tea a day. I pour 1 teaspoon of licorice powder in a large cup of extra hot water and let it cool down. I drink it before or after meals, one cup throughout the day. The flavor is pleasant. I am very pleased with my purchase and already feel better.
