"I really noticed an immediate increase in energy and sense of well being with this formula. I have tried other essiac formulas and this is my favorite." ~product review by DougM

  • Rene Caisse's classic Essiac herbal tea

  • Features the original four-herb Ojibwe blend plus four more synergistic herbs

  • Each packet makes up to 36 ounces of tea

Customers rejoiced when we introduced the original Essiac Eight Herb Proprietary Blend softgels at a low Swanson® price in 2010. Now we're pleased to present the pure herbal blend for infusion in the original form, just as Rene Caisse herself would have provided. New Swanson Certified Organic Essiac packets make it easy to recreate Nurse Caisse's ultimate enhanced Ojibwe tea for yourself.

Certified Organic Essiac Eight Herb Proprietary Blend represents the final triumph in Nurse Caisse's legendary work. Developed in the 1960s with Dr. Charles Brush at his Cambridge, MA, laboratories, it features the original four-herb recipe passed on by Ojibwe healers, plus four more powerfully synergistic herbs. Each Certified Organic Essiac Eight Herb Proprietary Blend packet supplies enough to make 36 ounces of your own herbal infusion, making it easy to scale your use to your desire and experience all the benefits of this ancient tonic at the level you choose.

Organic Essiac Tea 3.7 5 9 10
Essiac Tea I do not like the way it is blended. I would rather have the original herbs to brew. It tastes worse than any other essiac tea I have tried. December 6, 2013
So happy to have found this I am so happy to have found this tea. The tea has a very strong taste which indicates it is of the optimum strength. I feel so much better than when I was using other brands. I will continue to buy this brand and will never go back. December 3, 2013
Horrible Taste Essiac Tea is a great product (search online for what it's used for), but this product, unfortunately, isn't so great. The taste is HORRIBLE. In fact, we had to return it for a refund. July 30, 2013
Same as original This is the perfect replacement for the original that is no longer produced. June 9, 2013
Great Product I really noticed an immediate increase in energy and sense of well being with this formula. I have tried other essiac formulas and this is my favorite. May 3, 2013
Bitter taste The herbs were like powder and they seeped through the strainer. It was bitter tasting and gritty. Did not like it much. March 28, 2013
Bitter taste I'm a regular user of the original tea and have had good results using it. The powder is much lighter in color and ground very fine. (Maybe its the other herbs that are not in the original tea that gives it a lighter color#, the herb after brewing the tea is like a very fine silt #I would like to make tea not a cake) . I had better results with the original tea. Can't find the original tea any where local as a quick replacement. I'm going to switch to the pills for a while as I can't stand the taste of this tea. Hopefully Swansons will be able to get the original back in stock soon. March 25, 2013
Great taste, great price I really like this tea. It tastes great and is easy to brew. It is great for detoxing. March 20, 2013
Great tea This tea is very good. It regulates my system and gives me energy. February 14, 2013
