Learn how to make dandelion tea and the benefits of dandelion tea. You can make dandelion tea from the flowers, leaves, or roots of the dandelion.

Dandelions have several health benefits. They are naturally anti-inflammatory and act like a natural diuretic.

Dandelion tea doesn't taste bad, but it's not a great tea on its own. I add raw honey for a natural sweetener. You can also mix it with green tea or chamomile to mellow the flavor. I recommend using a tea ball to make it easy to strain.

This recipe is for dandelion flower tea. Be sure to click over to my dandelion tea recipe to learn how to make tea with the leaves or the roots.

You can also use dried dandelion leaves or root in your tea if dandelions aren't in season.
