The humble Dandelion is actually an incredibly useful and healing plant. The young leaves may be eaten in salads, and a strong brew of Dandelion tea will detoxify the body while supporting organ function and providing vital minerals and nutrients. Dandelion tea has been used as a healing tonic for centuries: it aids kidney and liver function to gently detoxify the body, regulates digestion, supports weight loss, can enhance the health and appearance of the skin, contribute to bone health and much more. Dandelion tea may be an excellent choice for those suffering from chronic illnesses or chronic fatigue. Try this simple and refreshing tonic to boost your health and wellbeing naturally.
Pour 8-12 oz of boiling water (212 F) over 1 tsp. of tea. Steep 3-10 minutes according to your taste. The longer you steep, the stronger the flavor and medicinal effects. Dandelion tea will develop a bitter taste if it is steeped too long, so to avoid a medicinal flavor you may wish to steep your tea no longer than five minutes, or sweeten with a spoonful of honey.
