Pharaoh Tutankhamun (1341 - 23BC) was buried with over 5,000 items2 in his burial chamber, things the ancient Egyptians considered essential for the afterlife, like his chariot and personal belongings. Some were food items, and one was a jar of liquorice, which is made from the root of a blue flowering pea-plant found growing wild in South Europe and Asia. The plant, botanical name Glycyrrhiza glabra, means sweet root.
"the root of a blue flowering pea-plant"
