Dandelion Detox is a sophisticated mash-up of traditional Chinese slimming teas and detox herb tea blends from western herbalism. Fermented pu-erh tea and oolong tea are often enjoyed during or after dim sum in Hong Kong. In Chinese, these teas are said to "cut the grease" and help the body digest rich foods. Dandelion root is an herb that is traditionally known to support detoxification. Cinnamon energizes the blend, while a hint of citrus provides quenching replenishment to restore balance.
Tasting Notes: Roasted dandelion root provides a bittersweet cacao profile, which is enriched with fermented pu-erh and oolong teas. Saigon cinnamon simmers with sweetness, while lemon provides cleansing balance. Finishes with uplifting hints of rose geranium.
Ingredients: Organic roasted dandelion root, organic lemon peel, organic puerh tea, organic oolong tea, organic cinnamon, organic ginger root, organic schizandra berries, essential geranium oil.
Additional Info: We recommend trying Dandelion Detox as a foundation for DIY Detox applications with raw and active apple cider vinegar, lemon, and cayenne.
Rishi Tea Blend
Water Temperature: 200°F (boiling)
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 3 - 4 minutes
We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.
