Description

Dandelion Tea is a delicious Herbal Tea from a plant considered by most to be a nuisance. Yet, in the words of the 19th-century American poet, Ralph Waldo Emerson, “What is a weed?

A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.” Here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company, we couldn’t agree more. This is why we pack it fresh to order here at our Pluckley-based factory.

But what, exactly, can it offer? For starters, when brewed, this infusion has bold herbaceous notes with a refreshing aftertaste. It is also 100% void of caffeine, thus making it an excellent alternative to those looking to cut down on their intake.

Perhaps most famous of all is its ability to improve life in small yet significant ways. In other words, Dandelion Tea health benefits. Discover for yourself today.

Facts About Dandelion

  • This Tea begins life as a flowering plant belonging to the Asteraceae (daisy) family.
  • The name, “Dandelion,” comes from the French phrase, “dent de lion,” which means “lion’s tooth.” This refers to the toothed shape of the leaves that surround the bottom of the plant’s stem.
  • It grows up to 30cm tall, developing miniature yellow flowers called ray florets. However, as Dandelions mature, their flowers develop into “blowballs.”
  • These blowballs can disperse themselves at distances as far as five miles.
  • The history of Dandelion’s use in medicine dates back to Arabia during the tenth and eleventh centuries. It also became a popular herb among Native American tribes.

Health Benefits of Dandelion Tea

A 2009 study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that Dandelion Tea is an excellent diuretic. It discovered, in particular, that volunteers showed a significant increase in the frequency of urination, resulting in the body flushing out nasty toxins.

But that’s not all on offer with this fantastic infusion.

Dandelion Tea contains high levels of Vitamins A, C and K, as well as Iron, Calcium and Potassium. These chemical compounds serve as antioxidants in the body, thus neutralising free radicals.

In doing so, it can reduce the risk of developing a multitude of chronic conditions, including cardiovascular disease and type-2 diabetes. What more could you want from your new favourite brew?
