A complex blend of all five tastes: sweet, sour, bitter, pungent and salty, plus roasted.
Based on a combination of herbs inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine, our herbalists blended roasted dandelion and chicory roots—bitter and earthy and used to stimulate your liver’s natural detoxification processes*—with schisandra berries, whose use was first documented 5,000 years ago. Called “five flavor berry” in Chinese, schisandra is unique in that it has all five tastes: sweet, sour, salty, bitter and pungent (or warmly spicy). A delightfully, complex-tasting tea, we love it because it gives the liver the love it deserves.
Brew Well to be Well®
For maximum benefit, herbal tea must be properly prepared. Pour 8 oz. freshly boiled water over a tea bag in a cup. Cover cup and steep 10-15 minutes. These steps directly influence the amount of beneficial components that will end up in your teacup! Gently squeeze the tea bag to release the remaining extract.
Drink 2-3 cups daily. To enhance benefits, add fresh lemon juice to taste.

I got this tea because I wanted something to support my liver and do a gentle detox. I've been feeling a little fuzzy brained but wasn't sure if it was just lack of sleep. After drinking two cups of tea a day for a few days I think I could tell a difference. I add a few drops of the french vanilla stevia and a little milk and it's really good.
