I’ve tried it in a blend, and I’ve tried it alone, and now it’s official - I love roasted dandelion root tea. It makes me want to grow a whole garden of dandelions to harvest on the correct moons (and piss off the neighboring gardeners) and such, and roast them by myself :) I’d harvest them from the neighborhood instead, but I don’t trust the lead and other toxin levels in the soil here in West Philly.
Dandelion roots: good for the digestion, good for the soul, powerful but safe medicine (unless you’re pregnant or lactating), and yummy. Almost coffee-like. Fits well with my desire to drink less black tea without missing the richness of the taste.
