Kiss Me Organics Dandelion Root Tea


When Brandbacker offered the opportunity to try the Organic Dandelion Root Tea, I guess you could say I was modestly happy. Why? Because I love tea and have never tried this type of tea before. Also, because I have garnered a love and appreciation for the Kiss Me Organics brand. Well, recently, I had the opportunity to try Kiss Me Organics Dandelion Root Tea with Hibiscus and Cinnamon. So, what did I think?

PROS
I never tried dandelion tea before. I am more of a Chai tea type of gal and prefer more of a gourmand type of flavor. I am actually happy that I discovered this amazing Kiss Me Organics addition. The flavor is earthy with a hint of floral and cinnamon. I wasn't sure if I would like this tea, but the acquired taste is really good. Especially when you add a little bit of Stevia to it.
Each box contains 20 sachets that are 1.41 oz. each. The ingredients are not only 100% organic, they are raw too. And because of this, the tea is extremely healthy in a sense where it provides you with vital nutrients and minerals. Fortified with an array of antioxidants such as Vitamin A, Vitamin B, Vitamin C, and Vitamin D along with Iron, Potassium, and even Zinc; this tea is incredibly healthy.
Not only is this tea extremely healthy and beneficial to one's state of well being, this tea supports healthy digestion, as it helps absorb key nutrients. It is also great for the kidneys, as it is even more outstanding for the liver. This tea works as a natural detox for both the kidneys and the liver. Dandelion root has so many benefits (and I will get more in depth about this soon), it is astonishing to me.
When it comes to immunity, this tea works naturally to promote a healthier immune system. Although it isn't as effective as some other products on the market, it still possesses incredible ingredients that work together to create a plethora of all things good, great, and amazing.
Believe it or not, this tea helps with those who have mood disorders. Whether you suffer from anxiety or even depression, you can benefit immensely when consuming this tea. It's also great for those with insomnia.
Not only does this tea regulate blood pressure naturally, balancing the high and the low, it also regulates blood sugar and even works to reduce the bad cholesterol.
This tea is naturally caffeine free. If you are looking for a caffeine free tea, you will not only love this one, but appreciate it too.
When it comes to genetically modified organisms, this tea does not contain them. This tea is GMO-free.

CONS
If you are looking for a tea with caffeine, you may not find this one appealing, as this is a naturally caffeine free tea.
The Organic Dandelion Root Tea with Hibiscus and Cinnamon is available at Amazon for $19.70. With less than $4 a box, this is a real deal. Would I recommend this tea to a friend? Yes. Would I drink this tea again? Absolutely. In fact, I just had a cup. For more information about this tea, simply visit Amazon right now.
