I received some Dandelion Root Tea from Kiss Me Organics, in exchange for an honest review. I was very happy to have some new tea to try, because I love a relaxing cup of hot tea.
I had never tried Dandelion Root tea before, so I had no idea what to expect. You can detect a slightly bitter undercurrent to the tea, which is masked well by the warming cinnamon and the tangy hibiscus. Those two flavors really complement the bitterness of the Dandelion root, making it a very harmonious blend. I found that a stevia-based sweetener tasted really good with it, better than either plain sugar or honey. Oh, and don’t make the mistake of letting it get too dark, as I did the first time I tried it. By the time it gets dark, that is when it will taste bitter.
Regarding the nutritional value, here is a summary provided by Kiss Me Organics:
- SUPPORTS HEALTHY DIGESTION, KIDNEY HEALTH & LIVER FUNCTION Detox the liver and kidneys from toxins that can build up over time. Healthy digestion helps the body to absorb more nutrients and improve physical and cognitive functions.
- RAW & ORGANIC Raw Dandelion Root is extremely nutrient rich and provides more vital minerals and vitamins to your body when compared to roasted Dandelion Root.
- VITAMIN RICH Raw Dandelion root is rich in Vitamins A, C, D and B-complex plus Iron, Potassium and Zinc. A diet rich in these nutrients can help treat mood disorders, liver disorders and boost a weakened immune system.
- HIBISCUS & CINNAMON While enhancing the earthy flavor, and adding a hint of flowery sweetness to every cup; Hibiscus has been shown to help regulate blood pressure and Cinnamon has been shown to regulate blood sugar and reduce bad cholesterol.
And, since Kiss Me Organics was nice enough to provide me with a sample to try, I thought I’d spread the joy and offer a box to a reader. To enter, tweet about the giveaway by April 3, 2015, midnight, Eastern Standard Time. Giveaway open to US residents, only.
