A few weeks ago, I was asked to try out & review KissMe Organic’s Organic Dandelion Root Tea. The tea contains dandelion root, cinnamon, and hibiscus. Dandelion root has Vitamins A, C, D and B-complex plus Iron, Potassium and Zinc, which will help treat mood disorders, liver disorders and boost a weakened immune system. Hibiscus has been shown to help with blood pressure and cinnamon helps reduce cholesterol and reduce blood sugar. I’ve never tried anything with dandelion in it before, so I wasn’t sure how good it’s going to be…especially since the pack I received had five boxes with 20 tea bags a piece in it.
Now, after trying it, I will tell you that it is bitter if you drink it straight without anything in it to sweeten it. When I say bitter, I mean very bitter! I have to put a good scoop of sugar in it to be able to drink it. That probably reduces the some of the healthiness some, but I’m slowly trying to lessen how much I put it.
I have been drinking at least once cup a day in the morning. I’ve noticed that it has helped reduce some of the swelling in my fingers, and it does calm me quite a bit if I’m stressed. I’ve also noticed that my sinuses have not been getting aggravated as much as well, but I’m not sure if that’s due to using the tea or not.
Overall, it’s not bad and I like it. It is pretty bitter, but adding sugar will help a lot. It is definitely worth picking up for the health benefits. The 5 pack that I received is available on Amazon for $19.70 (+ shipping).
