I discovered this specific drink while visiting friends in the UK-I'm from the US and we don't really have this here. It's wonderful; rich and satisfying; tastes amazingly like coffee. I recommend this very much especially if trying to kick caffeine (I love coffee) and tea often is a bit underwhelming. I absolutely love this drink! Reviewer's Name:

This drink is so good I really look forward to sitting and having a cup - it's a shame it's not in cafes and restaurants yet, as I get a little bored of being offered 'peppermint or camomile' tea!Reviewer's Name:

I love this drink!
I have tried dandelion coffee before (other brands) and didn't like them at all.
But this one is somehow different and really tasty.Reviewer's Name:

These are great for the coffee experience without the coffee -- the resulting brew is very strong, acidic-tasting, and dark. The 'beans' are have a tough/chewy texture, so you have to grind them in a blade coffee grinder. They also tend to leave a slight residue in the grinder, but you can wipe it right out.

Good for having a coffee-like drink in the evening; It has to be ground first though.Reviewer's Name:
Tips Make a batch of Dandelion coffee -

I have a massive pint mug of dandelion root coffee every morning. Unlike the instructions which tell you to grind it up and whack it in your coffee percolator, I just boil/simmer a tablespoon in 2 litres of water for 20mins. I make a big saucepan full of it once a week, and store it cool in a large plastic jug in the door of my fridge. I then heat a cup of it up each morning. I don't like the brands which sell granules because they all contain milk powder, or lactose as a sweetener. [Why do they do that????]
I've been doing this for about 7 years, and it is now part of my daily routine... which I miss terribly when I am on holiday. A 100g pack lasts me about 8 weeks because you only need a tablespoon to make 2 litres.
Oh, and dandelion is fabulous for your liver. You'll notice a big change in your bowels for the first week, as the dandelion stimulates your bile production. But it settles down after that. It's great for improving bad skin and for getting rid of unhealthy smelling body odour.Reviewer's Name:
