What is dandelion tea?
A dandelion tea is any tea that contains the flower, root or leaves of the dandelion plant (and yes, we do mean the dandelion that commonly grows in one’s backyard)! This plant that’s part of the daisy family sports bright yellow petals, and people often mistake the calendula blossoms, saffron, and marigolds we use into our other teas for dandelion. However, The Tea Centre prefers to use dandelion roasted root in our brews as this part of the plant is the most flavourful (boasting a mellow and slightly astringent flavour).
Specifically, The Tea Centre’s dandelion chai combines the beautiful traditional spiced flavours of chai with the health benefits of roasted dandelion root. Dandelion root is a tasty alternative to black tea with a slightly sweet and nutty flavour. Moreover, dandelion root has been historically used as an Ayurvedic spice for centuries among many cultures.
It boasts many health benefits including anti-inflammatory properties that help the stomach and liver in particular to function. The other spices within this tea include cardamom, cinnamon, and ginger. In having similar effects, these ingredients combine to make a powerful herbal tea that is naturally caffeine-free. Dandelion chai is perfect on its own or brewed with milk and a splash of honey for sweetness. Next time there’s a cool winter’s night, relax and bask in the warmth of a perfectly-made dandelion chai.
Is dandelion tea good for you?
In the most simple terms, yes! Dandelion tea is an effective detoxification agent, particularly when it comes to the liver and stomach. Its high traces of potassium means that dandelion doubles as a kidney filter that can flush out toxins and soothe digestion. Upset tummies will also love how our dandelion root tea further boasts minerals, electrolytes (for fluid retention), and is able to assist in reducing inflammation.
Consider pouring a cup of dandelion tea the next time you want to relax and unwind during some well deserved “me” time. Enjoy the soothing spiced aromas and warming flavours of a freshly brewed dandelion chai. Why not try brewing with milk and honey for an authentic chai experience?
