Decaffeinate: Dandelion Root Tea

As you can tell from my previous posts, I love starting the day with some sort of warm beverage, especially a warm, caffeinated beverage. (Check out my green tea latte and beaten coffee recipes!) 

However, I recently realized just how much caffeine I was consuming with almost a daily cup of coffee and multiple rounds of green teas, black teas, etc. Thus, I've been trying really really hard these last couple weeks to decrease my caffeine consumption. Instead, I've taken to drinking more caffeine-free teas like mint tea or what I'm focusing on today: Dandelion Root Tea with Hibiscus & Cinnamon.
A couple weeks back, I received a sample of this tea from Kiss me Organics, the same company who sponsored me to review their Culinary Grade Organic Matcha (which is amazing by the way).

I've never had dandelion root tea before. However, the packaging suggests that this tea helps support healthy digestion and aids in liver and kidney detox, and of course to go along with what I was talking about earlier, caffeine free. Some basic research revealed many benefits:
  • Hibiscus - supports normal blood pressure
  • Cinnamon - helps regulate blood sugar levels
  • Dandelion root - helps improve digestion, upset stomach, inflammation
Although I can't say I've noticed a significant difference in my digestion, this tea is nevertheless a calming and flavorful way to escape the grasps of caffeine. Plus, with all of the herbal ingredients, it's a great source of many vitamins and nutrients.

If you're interested in trying the tea, visit their amazon page:
