    Yes, I drink dandelion root tea; it is one of my favorite teas. The roasted flavor reminds me of coffee and it is a great substitute for coffee if one is trying to cut back. Awesome benefits too! Take care!

    This is one of my FAVORITE teas to drink! and I also drink the Traditional Medicinals brand. I started drinking it last year to help with breakouts along my jawline and it has helped clear them up completely. I love that it has no caffeine so I usually drink it before bed.

    I tried this a while back. I really did like the taste. However, It caused me to experience some breakouts. I stopped drinking it. I really wanted it to work for me, but I couldn’t deal with the breakouts.

    @Trinity That happened to me too when I first drank it. Since dandelion tea helps cleanse the system of toxins, sometimes that results in breakouts as toxins are released through the skin. I’m not saying that you have to drink it, just giving you an explanation as to why it might have happened. 🙂
