Bitter and earthy. Combine with other bitter roots like chicory or contrasting herbs and flowers in tea blends.
Dandelion is one of those common backyard “weeds” that also has many practical uses. While the leave is appreciated as a salad green and vegetable, the dried root is used to produce a hot beverage that offers a bitter flavor like coffee but without caffeine.
In addition to bitter compounds, dandelion root also contains numerous vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. This herb has a long history of use as a tonic and restorative. In fact, due to the actions of some of its compounds, dandelion root may increase the effects of certain prescription medications. It may also speed the metabolism of synthetic broad-spectrum antibiotics.

My husband loves, loves, loves this dandelion root loose tea. When we're in Pittsburgh we love to wander through the shop before buying at least 8oz of this tea. If we need to, we order it buy mail and the delivery is amazingly fast. 10 stars!
