Is dandelion Tea safe?

Has anyone tried dandelion tea? I love the taste and just want to see if made anyone worse or is a known 5ARI? My research says no, but always good to check with this community.


I wouldn’t risk it bud

I love dandelion tea, the leaves, stems, roots, all parts. I have consumed gallons of the tea, both pre-saw and post-saw with no issues. It’s a great source of potassium. I prefer to harvest wild dandelion than buy it. It tastes much better freshly picked than the dry, dehydrated powder on store shelves. People mistake sow thistle for dandelion, but I can tell the difference. Sow thistle is not poisonous, but Awor would tell you to avoid milk thistle. Fun fact: Dandelion, sow thistle, milk thistle, dog fennel, bidens pilosa, calea, and many other plants are in the sunflower family.

If you do buy dandelion tea, don’t get the teabags. I know it’s convenient and less cleanup, but a 1 ounce container of the herb in teabags costs about $5.99, almost as much as a bulk 16 ounce bag of the herb without the tea bags, about 7.33. The math: 5.99 x 16 = 95.84 - 7.33 = 88.51. Don’t be ripped off.
