Cut too Fine
So far, I have loved all the herbs that I have purchased from OM. I'm somewhat disappointed in the liquorice root. It is cut far too fine. I'm making a tincture and it is so fine, that it looks like mud. I'm not sure what the end result will be. I'm hoping I will be able to use it. The packaging is always excellent. Three stars.
