Although sold with and classified with herbs, Galangal Root is actually a rhizome - a type of stem that grows underground and often sends out roots of its own. Ginger, which is related to Galangal, is an example. While Ginger and Galangal Root may be members of the same botanical family, they taste nothing alike. Galangal Root is described as peppery with overtones of pine and a hint of citrus.
