How to Make Dandelion Tea

There are many recipes for dandelion tea, but the most basic one follows the basic tea recipe you'd apply with any other herbs or types of tea. You can have your tea sweetened with honey or sugar, but as always, it is recommended to have it unsweetened to boost its health benefits.

Dandelion tea recipe:

Boil your water or bring it next to a boil, steep the 1-2 tablespoons of dandelion leaves in there, and leave for 3-10 minutes. Once it reaches the strength you like, strain and drink with honey, or without if you enjoy a more bitter drink.
