Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) is an herb native to Europe. The Dandelion roots are the nutrient absorbing parts of the sunny and bright yellow flower. You can process the roots and its leaves for safe consumption. The Dandelion roots are cut, sifted, and dried in Spring season where it blossoms the best. The Dandelion root is a natural stimulant that gives you a good energy boost in the morning.
Dandelion is often thought of as a pesky weed, but its leaves and roots are full of vitamins and minerals. Dandelion herbal tea is made from the leaves, flower, or roasted root of the dandelion flower, and hot water. This roasted version makes a great alternative to coffee with similar bitter and malty notes. This dandelion root “coffee” is actually made more like a strong tea, and has a slightly bitter (in a good way) taste.
