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.

Ingredients:

  • hot water
  • honey, if desired

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.

If you want to make the bitter taste of dandelion tea more mild, you can also blend it with other tea leaves (pre-brewing). For instance, try mixing dandelion with green tea or chamomile. Play around with it and see what you like the best!

Warning! 

Dandelion tea is detoxifying and can be strong on the liver. If you are new to drinking it, start with a small cup and go from there.
