Product Information


Promotes Healthy Liver Function*
USDA Organic
Caffeine Free Herbal Tea
What will Organic Roasted Dandelion Root do for me? Dandelion root tea has shown "choleretic" effects, which means that it can stimulate the liver to increase bile flow.* Once bile is released by the liver, its two main functions are to carry away waste and to break down fats during digestion. How do I know it works? Dandelion's beneficial effects on liver and biliary tract function have been proven in pharmacological studies.* When should I use it? Drink one cup prepared with 1 to 2 tea bags, three times daily for up to 4-6 weeks. How does it taste? A pleasant roasted taste, sweet and slightly bitter.

Brew Well to be Well®
For maximum benefit, herbal tea must be properly prepared. Pour 8 oz. freshly boiled water over one tea bag in a cup. Cover cup and steep 15 minutes. These steps directly influence the amount of beneficial components that will end up in your tea cup! Gently squeeze the tea bag to release the remaining extract. Unless otherwise prescribed, drink 3 freshly prepared cups daily.


Consult your healthcare provider prior to use if you have severe acute, inflammation of the gallbladder, painful obstruction of the bowel, or obstructed bile ducts. Dandelion teas should be used for periods of up to 4-6 weeks, followed by a break before resuming. If pregnant or breast-feeding, ask a health care professional before use.

Dandelion Tea, STOPS Edema, of the feet!
IF, you have Edema of the feet and lower legs, put two Dandelion tea bags, in a 12-14oz. cup, heat the water in the microwave, place the two tea bags in the cup for about 10 minutes, squeeze the bags to get all the "good" out of them, sweeten to taste, add a little lemon juice, dring two cups every day, in two weeks you will see the difference.
Takes a couple of days to get use to the taste, then you will look forward to it!

It is a little "pricy" but well worth it!

THIS will relieve your Edema, also drink plenty of water.

Dandelion Root Tea; Okay by Me
Prior to recent travel to California I wanted to stop drinking coffee. Generally, I drank 1 large (20oz.) cup (and sometimes a smaller cup or even more later in the day) each day. However, I drank much Dutch Bros. coffee and other coffee in CA. The day after my return to NY (March 2, 2013) I had pain that seemed like indigestion. Therefore, I purchased this tea to help me get off of coffee and to aid my digestion. First, I tried taking another (usually very helpful and well-known name brand) product several times as prescribed but, this time, it did not work! The Dandelion Root tea worked wonders, although not instantly (not the very first cup), and the pain dissolved completely!! Drinking the tea along with and/or after meals has proven to be very helpful to my digestive system. Also, I have been able to drink this tea with and without a sweetener. I do not experience any funny/unusual smells or tastes from this tea as some others have. At the same time, I recognize that everyone has a different sense of smell and taste. I signed on to GNC to purchase more boxes of this tea and to try some of the other GNC teas. Prior to drinking the Dandelion Root tea, I generally purchased Aloe Vera or Vitamin E oil products from this company. Now, along with the DR tea, I am purchasing more GNC teas and other products, especially as (a person in the 50-year old age range) I seek to have better health. And, I have already suggested the DR tea and given some bags of it to a family member who has suffered with digestion problems after treatment for cancer of the esophagus. To everyone: I recommend trying the tea with or after meals or anytime of the day. So far, I have been drinking this tea everyday, sometimes sipping on a cup of it throughout the day. As another person mentioned in their post, maybe this is TMI but, I have also had little to no gas than what I was experiencing at the beginning of and after my travels between NY and CA. I could be wrong, even so, I also attribute this benefit to the DR tea.

This is a Tonic Tea
This is a tonic tea used to aid digestion. It helps with liver function, urine flow, stomach/digestion. This tea, along with Milk Thistle and 2 Tb/day Lemon Juice (taken at different times, of course) were instrumental in lowering my liver enzymes from the 400's back to normal, in 5 weeks. Sweeten with Stevia if you cannot stand the strong flavor. Don't drink too close to bedtime unless you want to pee all night!

Beat Expectations
After reading all the posted comments, I was truly expecting an awful tasting tea. The aroma from the bag seemed to confirm others' thoughts. Amazingly, it was not nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. I am a tea drinker and I never add sweetener to my tea. I do agree that it has a unique taste among teas that I have sampled, but for the health benefits, it is a winner.

Surprisingly Good!
I used this product as part of a detox. I found that when drinking this tea along with chocolately flavored foods, it tasted more like regular iced tea!

This is not as bad as others say!
This tea is for persons who LIKE tea, not for the occasional drinker. It will taste odd to you if you hate tea to begin with - it is an acquired taste, but delivers on what it says it will do. As far as the taste, my roommate descibed it as diluted peanut butter...sounds about right! Give it a go!

Good tea
I bought this tea to cleanse my digestive system and to cleanse my liver. I mix equal parts dandelion root with peppermint tea as peppermint tea stimulates bile secretion as does the dandelion root. The dandelion root tastes a little bitter on its own, but tastes great with the peppermint. Sometimes I add lemon juice too.

I'd absolutely buy this product again
Although this tea does have a strong flavor and can be bitter, if it's sweetened I find no problem with the strength or bitterness at all. I enjoy and prefer the flavor to many other herbal teas.

I bought this tea for the purpose of a cleansing drink, luckily I mix it with other ingredients because if I didn't I would want to return it. I like tea but am not a tea enthusiast and read that this was bitter but I was in for a surprise. Alone it is disgusting, even with honey or sugar. It even smells gross. If you plan to buy this just for the taste, make sure you know what it tastes like first.
