Dandelion Detox Tea—Iced or Hot

Dandelion is known for helping the body’s natural detoxification process, and this detox iced tea is a wonderful way to support the liver and get your digestive juices flowing. Since dandelion tea can be a tad bitter, this recipe calls for a touch of honey or maple syrup for sweetness. Dandelion root tea can be found at any health-food store or online, and the tea can also be enjoyed hot if preferred.
