I had heard that you could use dandelions for various ailments but had never tried them for anything. You can actually use the dandelions that grow in your own yard! Since this is my first experience, I’m glad that I let someone else do the growing, picking, and preparing. Plus, who doesn’t love tea?!
I received some Organic Dandelion Root Tea from Kiss Me Organics to review and I was pleasantly surprised. I mean, not to judge a tea by its name, but dandelion roots? Not exactly appetizing! In addition to the dandelion roots, the tea also contains hibiscus and cinnamon. The tea is subtle and not overpowering. I can taste the cinnamon, but it blends well with the other flavors. I even tried this tea iced and it was good!
There are so many health benefits to such a variety of teas that are on the market today. What is that saying? A few of cups of tea a day keep the doctor away. Okay, that isn’t actually how it goes, but you have to agree that you have heard many claims of health benefits of drinking tea.
The claims with this tea are that it helps support a healthy digestion and aids in liver and kidney detox. It also can aid in stabilizing blood sugar, regulating blood pressure and cholesterol, and is full of antioxidants. I can’t tell you if it’s doing any of those things for me or not, but I can tell you it is a very delicious tasting tea and I will continue to drink it. The health benefits are just icing on the cake!
In addition to learning about how you can use dandelion roots to make tea, I also learned that you can cook with dandelion root. Now, if you’re a little worried about picking a dandelion out of your back yard and then adding it to whatever you’re cooking, you are not alone! The good news is that Kiss Me Organics have a book of recipes, including this one below for Avocado Mayonnaise, using dandelion root tea (you just cut open the tea bag and dump it in)!
Whether or not I have convinced you to give this tea a try, at least I might have convinced you that dandelions are more than just an annoying weed! If you are interested in trying it out, you can purchase it on Amazon and Kiss Me Organics has a 100% money back guarantee!
I received this product through BrandBacker from Kiss Me Organics to sample and review. I was not compensated in any other way besides a free product. As always, all opinions are my own.
