"I've been using Alvita's teas for a quite a while & I have always been impressed with the quality. Burdock root is a great way to nourish & cleanse your body. It can help to clear up acne by cleaning impurities from the blood. After an illness it's a good way to help recover. It is also a diuretic to help with water retention. I steep a bag in boiling water, covered, for 20-30 minutes. This makes a stronger infusion which is better than the weak tea you'll get by following the box instructions. Add just a touch of honey or sugar & it's the perfect end of the day drink, cold day warm up or post illness cleanser & strengthener."
"I read so much good things about Burdock that I had to try the tea. I think my skin did become clearer from drinking the tea 3 times a week, but I am not too sure. Despite that, tea taste great and no ill effect."
"With a light nutty flavor, this tea now holds a place among my favorites. Although following the generic instructions for tea making present on all Alvita boxes yeilds a tea I found far too weak, so I immediately cover the mug with foil and let it steep for an hour or so ( only 'cause its convenient for me, not because it takes an hour) and that makes it a tea worth buying.... And as far as the proposed health benefits one reads of on the interweb go, I'm afraid I haven't been downing it as much as one would need to attest to that aspect of the tea. However I will say that this stuff makes you urinate like crazy, so keep yourself hydrated constantly thru the day."
