For over a century its basic recipe has not changed. This natural sweetener is a concentrate of licorice root and star anise in its original flavored version. No added sugar. With healing, soothing, anti-inflammatory properties. For many generations, it is the memory of a few brown drops poured into water, of a thirst-quenching drink, of tea parties at grandparents' or summer camps. A madeleine of Proust.
