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.

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.
