about

Dandelion tea has been used as an ancient herbal remedy for centuries. Each part of the plant, [the root, the leaf and the flower] has its own unique medicinal properties. Proven to increase energy, boost immunity, improve skin clarity, cure hangovers, shed excess water weight, improve regularity, eliminate bloat and curb appetite, dandelion tea is a homegrown super plant with endless health benefits. LION Tea’s dandelion tea is brewed just like any other tea and combines whole plant dandelions with real fruit and a teaspoon of organic honey for a highly functional yet deliciously refreshing ready to drink tea.

Current product lineup: Original Dandy, Lemon Elderflower, Strawberry Lavender, Blueberry Hibiscus, Blood Orange Ginger, Blackberry Rose

founding story

At age 21, LION Tea Founder, Ray DeRosa, woke up after his birthday with blurred vision that he attributed to his hangover. As a result of his symptoms, his mother determined that he had the same affliction she did: Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy. To help ease the symptoms, she immediately put him on a regimen of drinking fresh dandelion tea, and within three days his vision returned to 20/20. To this day, DeRosa still maintains that dandelion tea saved his eyesight. Ever since that traumatic experience, DeRosa has been on a mission to share the power of the dandelion flower with consumers and health enthusiasts around the country.

LION Tea Lemon Elderflower-Unsweetened
Refreshing, bold and mischievously tart, you won’t be able to get enough! Someone finally managed to bottle the taste and feel of a summer afternoon (ok it was us). Be warned: the lemon elderflower goes down easy. Before you know it, you’ll be driving down a country lane with the car top down and your hair blowing in the breeze.

LION Tea Strawberry Lavender
One of our most elegant and dare we say, “sultry” flavors. The combination of strawberry, lavender and whole plant dandelion is truly decadent, while at the same time, detoxifying and restorative. With floral notes of lavender and a bright strawberry finish, you won’t be able to keep your hands off it. Lightly sweetened with honey.

LION Tea Bluberry Hibiscus
Our steadfast and loyal fan favorite. LION’s blueberry hibiscus is our most downright delectable flavor. Blueberries are a well known antioxidant, it’s true, but did you know that hibiscus has powerful anti inflammatory properties? Lightly sweetened with honey.
