    Sounds like I need to start incorporating my dandelion supplement every day and not just when trying to combat a problem! And don’t overlook the only sweetner that is actually “good” for you-Stevia, because it is actually a supplement! Just another benefit of the Japanese diet that helps them develop and maintain virtually anatomically correct bodies :)

  2. Ruth Says:

    Hi, Diane! Thank you for writing! You are right! “A dandelion a day keeps health problems away!” How do you like that? (I just made it up. Sounds good to me!)

    Yes, Stevia, yes, yes!!! Sorry, I forgot–I like Stevia. It’s good. Thank you! Ruth

    GREAT promises to fix so many of my health negativities. I can hardly wait to try to see results. I’ll let you know.

  5. N Shah Says:

    Sorry, sending this note again as I sent this note using your “About Us” page.

    You have a great website with lot of info. I see great benefits from drinking Dandelion Tea but not sure if it can help me with my allergic condition. Since last two weeks, I started having this red itchy bumps and swelling in hands, upper front and lower back, shoulders and face as well. Week back I went to medical unit and they said I’m having Hives (Urticaria). Though I’m not sure what’s causing this hives. They gave me steroid shot and put me on steroid pills and been also taking benedryl. I’ve been searching for some home remedy but didn’t find anything until just now.

    Can you please tell me if Dandelion Tea helps with hives and curing them permanently so that I don’t have to rely on over the counter medicines that works only temporary.

    thank you!
    N Shah

  6. Janet Says:

    I have just started drinking dandelion tea, and I love it. I am beginning to feel the benefits already. I am drinking 1 cup a day…should it be more? I have Fibromyalgia an gallstones plus arthritis. I’m getting the detox effect I think. Great. I am also drinking nettle tea.

  7. Ashley (Taste for Healthy) Says:

    I love dandelion tea for getting rid of bloat… fast! But it is nice to be reminded of all the other benefits it offers as well. Thank you for sharing! :)

  8. Ruth Says:

    Thank you for writing, Ashley! Great to hear from you! Ruth

  9. Gramma D Says:

    I bought the dandilion tea leaves. so now I need to know how much to use per cup of water and how long to brew. I need to get relief for constipation.

  10. Ruth Says:

    Hi, Gramma D!

    I am happy to hear from you, glad to hear you bought dandelion tea leaves (hopefully from clicking on our website page!), and expect you will have a well-working constitution soon! Suffering from constipation is unpleasant and uncomfortable as well as unhealthy. Natural remedies like drinking dandelion tea treat your digestive tract gently to conquer constipation.

    The colon needs liquid to keep fit. Enjoy herbal (dandelion) tea; also drink a glass of water at least 5 times a day. When people are not thirsty, they sometimes forget they need to drink. And sometimes people drink things (lots of alcohol) that dry out the colon. Especially for necessary relief from constipation, ensure you drink enough water (2 liters, or quarts, a day).

    To avoid a lot of colon problems, eat a varied diet full of whole high-fiber organic, nutrient-dense foods low in unrefined sugars, including (leafy) vegetables, berries, Granny Smith Apples, beans, nuts, and seeds (with lots of raw foods) as well as drink sufficient water and get good exercise, also healthy things like manage your stress and get regular healing deep sleep.

    Help to answer nature’s call: Boil 1 dandelion teabag in 1 cup water, or pour 8 ounces boiling water over 1 dandelion teabag; let steep about 5 minutes. Drink a couple times a day and at bed time. Expect the symptoms of constipation to be resolved in a day. Squeezing lemon juice into your dandelion tea or water helps soften — and speed up — your system.

    I am an active flight attendant, not a medical doctor, so please consult a health professional if you have more than a simple temporary blockage.

    On New Year’s Eve I sipped dandelion tea while working a night flight over the north Atlantic Ocean, also on New Year’s Day, working the flight home!

    Thank you!

  15. Eva Says:

    Hello Everyone,

    Great page. I am new to dandelion tea and I have a question – when using the blossoms, can I also use blossoms that are closed? or do they need to be open for the great benefits?

    Thank you – Eva

  16. Ruth Says:

    I’m happy to say you can use any part of the plant anytime, closed or open.
    Thank you for your comment!

  17. Eva Says:

    Hi Ruth,

    Thank you very much for responding sooo fast. I’m just going to my yard in Orangeville, ON and pick some closed blossoms.

    Cheers Ruth,

  18. Ruth Says:

    Happy foraging!

  19. Georgia Says:

    Dandelion is an excellent tea if you have high blood pressure. I drank one cup of tea for 5 days and my blood pressure came down really fast. The following week I drank 1 cup of tea every other day. You cannot drink this tea every day your pressure will come down too low.

  20. Fi Says:

    I have a cup of dandelion tea everyday. My question is: I have it as a ‘latte’ – frothy milk and sugar – will I still have the health benefits if made like this or should I be having it plain? I love my latte’s !!! And I’m able to replace a coffee latte with a dandelion latte with great satisfaction! I find it just as delicious as coffee but better for me !
    Thank you.

  21. Ruth Says:

    Hi, Fi! (So far, so good?)
    Thank you for writing! I love hearing about your daily dandy-”latte”!
    A delicious way for dandelion to deliver its many health benefits!
    For an even healthier beverage, have you tried sweetening with honey – and yet healthier still, with xylitol or stevia? (Stevia, by the way, and dandelion are plant relatives; both are related to the sunflower family. Xylitol made from a birch tree looks and tastes quite like sugar but without the carbohydrates.)
    It’s all in good taste, and getting better and better! Ruth

  26. marjorie Says:

    Read about the benefits of dandelion tea. I have high cholesterol, have had 2 strokes. one in 09 and the worst one in jan. of this year. I’m on plavix and a statin drug. do you have any knowledge for me to beware of if I start on this tea? I search the web alot to find out answers. When I had my first stroke it didn’t cause too much damage. Wasn’t on any drugs when 2nd one hit as I was allergic to statins. With this 2nd stroke they found provocol that is working fine. Never wanted to be in drugs, but if it prevents me from having another stroke, I will continue.Second stroke left me in a wheelchair with left side damage. I like the sound of the dandelion tea and the fact it lowers cholesterol. Any knowledge to my question would help me. thank you. marjorie

  32. Aman Says:

    I bought dandelion root c/s organic,thinking its the loose tea.
    It has a warning:
    Contraindicated in blockage of the bile ducts, acute gallbladder ,inflammation and intestinal blockage.

    Really confused! What to to with this bag of roots.

  33. Ruth Says:

    Dear Aman,
    I found the statement below just above the contraindication warning you quoted, and hope it helps to clarify and give the information you need:
    “Dandelion is generally regarded as safe but some people report allergic or asthmatic reaction to this herb. Dandelion is a member of the Asteraceae/Compositae family and people that are allergic to chamomile chrysanthemums yarrow feverfew ragweed sunflower daisies or other members of the Asteraceae family may be allergic to dandelion as well. Dandelion is not recommended for patients with liver or gallbladder disease because of the traditional belief that dandelion stimulates bile secretion although there are no studies of animals or humans that support this belief.”

    Many people over many millennia have safely enjoyed the healthy benefits of dandelion – I hope you are able to do that, too! Ruth

  34. Nia Says:

    Hello Ruth! I just so happen to love the very honest and open-minded mentality of the Germans! (I lived in Berlin for a year). Than you for this site! I have been drinking dandelion tea for a little over a week now because I am trying to alkalise my system (I have a lot of acid symptoms and I take some strong asthma medication). I have also been sweetening the tea with Xylitol for its alkalising affect on the body and dental benefits. Though I typically brush my teeth regularly, I have been slacking over the past couple of months and brushing with baking soda/Natrium (not baking powder/Nicht Backpulver) some days but, completely skipping others. A week ago I started washing my mouth out with the tea, lemon and Xylitol because I have begun feeling like I had an infection beneath my gums. The first time I drank it I got a strong sensation in my mouth so I thought that maybe it was causing a problem. The next morning I noticed that the pain and irritation from the possible infection, that I had been having for more than a week was almost completely gone! I went to the dentist this week and for the first time in my life I was told that I have excellent oral hygiene.

    I also have sinuses that do not open up without medication and they are now opening up without any medication. I have two strange hives that are located in the same spot on my cheeks on each side of my nose – I think this may be a sign of detoxification and why my sinuses are open. Dandelions are considered a cultural food in the southern United States where my grandparents are from. I don’t like the taste so making the tea is a good option for me. Thanks again!


  35. Ruth Says:

    Hello Nia! Vielen herzlichen Dank – many heartfelt thanks!!

    I love what you wrote! Thanks for sharing your application for great mouth hygiene, clear sinuses, successful detox! All simple and easy on the taste buds! Congratulations and all the best wishes!

    Thanks so much.
    Aloha, Anne

  50. Zel Says:

    Hi there. I have a question… Can you get too much of this tea? I don’t drink a hot cup of tea as its way too hot where I live for hot drinks. Instead I like to mix a cup of this tea in my bottle of water to drink during the day. I use about 3 teabags in a 2 liter bottle.

  51. Zel Says:

    As of today I will also start using a used teabag on my face as a toner. My dad used to have this huge son spot on his face, it started turning into a mole. When I saw him for the first time in a year, it was gone. He says all he did was rub a Dandelion on it. He convinced me…

  52. Dale Says:

    Can i drink COLD dandelion tea? My sister boiled dried dandelion roots yesterday for her morning tea and theres a lot left. I dont want to waste it so i strained and put it in the fridge. Was it okay to drink it like that? How long should i store it in the fridge?

    Yes, it’s as good cold as hot.

  58. Tai Bey Says:

    Try this tea with agave as a sweetener instead of honey or sugar. Sugar is terrible for the human body and contrary to popular belief, so is honey.

  59. Jane Says:

    Stevia would be much better for you, even honey, as long as it’s raw. There is much doubt about the healthiness of agave since it is pretty much fructose. Check it out!

  60. Annie Says:

    Hi there Ruth

    For the full health benefits of dandelion tea, is it better to drink the tea bags? All i have is instant granules but not sure whether this will help.

    Trying to get away from my over the counter medication for menstrual cramps.

    And Tai Bey, yes honey can be dodgy for the system as well.. I ended up with pancreatitis from eating too much honey.

  61. Ruth Says:

    Hi Annie,

    Thank you for writing! The effective ingredients of the dandelion herb and its unique taste are largely preserved with a gentle production process that will produce instant granules. I hope for your success, would love for you to write back with your personal results, and wish you all the best!

    Sincerely yours, Ruth

    I have just started to drink dandelion tea. I am type2 diabetic and recently (due to excessive heat at the moment)have been diagnosed with mild edema. I consulted my doctor about drinking this herbal tea rather than popping more pills and he agreed. So far it seems to have reduced the swelling around my ankle area. I am very pleased with this and to be honest, it is a far more pleasant way to treat mild edema than taking more drugs into my system. This is not a treatment for those with excessive swelling from edema, but I can’t see it being a bad thing to use it in combination with subscribed medication. Above all it doesn’t taste bad at all.

  72. Marylu Says:

    Hi – Hoping for some advice. I have just started drinking the tea. I have high blood pressure and am also carry a bit too much weight at the moment.
    I find that the tea does not taste very nice at all and so far have mixed it with Rooibos (Red Bush) which made it marginally better. Are there capsules you can take or is the tea the only option.
    Any advice would be most welcome.

  88. marjorie Says:

    I had high cholesterol and took western medicine for 6 years, and my cholesterol was still boardly high, 230,and still had to continuing medicine. In the fall of 2013, heard people talked about dandelion was good for human’s health in general (not knowing particular on certain ill or chronic disease), I started to pick up and eat 0.3 oz of fresh dandelion leaves (I have a organic back yard for 20 years) 3 or 4 times per week.
    Surprisingly from my blood test Lab result, my LDL and TRI cholesterol went down to only half compared from 4 month’s before, and of course my total cholesterol was so perfect and beautiful. I
    instantly thought the Lab made a big mistake, and I insisted my doctor to contact the Lab to discuss it. Then my another blood draw and lab test result came to the similar same.
    Make the story short, I changed my doctor and had a new test on January 2014, the result was still perfect. And then I knew neither my previous doctor nor the Lab making any mistakes, and the only thing I did different was my dandelion diet since last fall.
    However, I quit my medicine on my own decision, and will take a blood test next month to see it.

    One disappointment to me was my high blood sugar did not go down at all. Therefore, I am still take Metformin for this. I search internet information and realized dandelion root would help for blood sugar, and that is what I am going to consume soon.
