Often brewed as a coffee sub-substitute, the roots of Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) can also be used as an ingredient in root beer. The cleaned, raw roots can also be sliced into salads or cooked and added to other vegetables. The taproot is white on the inside and dark brown on the outside and grows up to 6 inches long. The plant first appeared in the 10th century journals of Arabian physicians.
Alvita Dandelion Root Tea is made with premium-quality, organic dandelion root, and exudes an enjoyable roasted and nutty flavor and aroma.
Preparation: Place one tea bag in a cup and add 8 oz boiling water. Cover and steep for 12 minutes. Gently squeeze tea bag and remove. We recommend 3 cups daily.
In 1922, a group of alfalfa enthusiasts who believed that alfalfa's rich green foliage and deep root system contained "Vitamines" and minerals essential for good health innovated the way the plant was consumed by providing alfalfa in tea bags. The abbreviation of alfalfa and vitamins quickly led to the brand name "Alvita," and thus the Alvita Tea Company was born.
