Dandelion weeds in your garden? Yay! It’s time for some healthy herbal dandelion tea. Yes, every part of this weed is edible and equally healthy. The recipe for preparing dandelion root tea and dandelion leaf tea is covered below. Jump straight to the one that you’d like to drink.
Pour the water in a saucepan and bring it to boil.
Add the coarsely chopped dandelion root into the boiling water and let it boil for another 10 mins.
Turn off the heat and keep it aside. Let the tea steep for about 30 mins.
Now strain the tea into a cup using a strainer.
Curl up in your sofa and enjoy the hot dandelion root tea!
Dandelion Leaf Tea
Add dried dandelion leaves in a cup.
Pour boiling water over the leaves in the cup.
Let it steep for 10 minutes.
Serve the tea with a slice of lime!
You may choose to add honey, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, ginger, or any other taste-enhancer to please your taste-buds.
If you'd like to have a creamy frothy dandelion root tea, you may use one more ingredient, that is butter. Once you strain the tea, pour it in a blender and blend it with 1 tablespoon of butter. Remember to release the steam from the blender by opening the lid in intervals or to keep the lid partially open. This tea will taste better if you use roasted dandelion root instead of raw dandelion root. Yum!
