I am a sucker for a tea with a magical claim, friends.
This one is a delightful green, with hints of berry and mint at the forefront. Now, I’ll be honest– I may have brewed this one up a bit too hot, as I hadn’t realized it was a green until after my water went a’boilin’. (Not my– wait for it– *smart*est moment, but I digress.)
But regardless, it was everything I love greens to be– fruity, light, grassy– and nothing I dislike– bitter, or vegetal.
Did it make me any smarter?
I can’t say for sure (and my flub on the boiling temp would surely suggest otherwise), but it was great afternoon sipping, and gave me just enough pep to make it through til the end of the day.
If I’m smart enough to know what’s good for me, I’ll be brewing this one again!
Here’s the scoop!

I have looked at this tea and passed it by so many times because dandelion tea can be very strong and bitter. But dandelion tea also has amazing health benefits. Natural Grocers has been having a great sale on Yogi teas, so I decided to brave it and give it a try. It’s mixed with spices like cinnamon, clove and ginger and also cocoa shells, kind of a Chai mix.
I brewed my first cup and immediately loved the smell. It smelled nutty and slightly spicy. I added a little raw sugar and a splash of coconut creamer and took my first sip. I was very pleasantly surprised by how delicious this is! It doesn’t have any of the sharp, bitter taste I remember from plain dandelion tea. It has a roasted, nutty flavor with a slight, spicy kick. It’s pretty sweet so it doesn’t need much sweetener. I can definitely see this tea becoming a regular thing for me. When you read about the health benefits of dandelion tea, it’s pretty remarkable.
So far every Yogi tea I’ve tried has been amazing. They use organic ingredients, and compared to other organic teas they aren’t too expensive.
I should also mention that this tea has no caffeine, so it’s safe to drink at any time of the day, and it’s rich enough to help if you’re trying to cut back on coffee.
I feel better since I started drinking this, I feel like it is helping with digestion and I notice a difference in my skin too. I give this tea all the thumbs up!
