Starwest Botanicals Organic Dandelion Root Cut and Sifted -- 1 lb
Too many blackened/carbon sticks in the mix
I've been buying this Starwest brand of the organic Dandelion Root from Vitacost for over a year. Unfortunately, the quality of the contents has been decreasing over time. The number of blackened carbon sticks has grown over the year. I'm going to have to find another distributer. Dear Vitacost Buyers, please, please, please at your supplier to do better quality control. Otherwise, you're going to lose customers.

I used to take dandelion supplements everyday and then I decided to try drinking it as a tea daily. Dandelion tea is an excellent way to detox on a cleanse; or support the liver in general. I like taking it as a tea daily because I also get the benefit of increasing my water intake also.

Better Buy than Bags
When I first tried this herb, I didn't like the taste. I love the bag version which is roasted and has a great smokey flavor like coffee. I decided to roast this loose tea in my Turbo Oven clone convection oven (if you don't have this type of oven, you've got to get one, Great alternative to the microwave). The taste of the tea improved dramatically, tasted exactly like the bag version if not better. You roast it longer if you want a stronger tea. Buying the tea loose and roasting it myself has saved me a ton of money. I also reuse the loose granuals several times (at least 3x) by using a tea basket and running hot water through it.
