Rated 1 out of 5 by from not Sorry that I made this purchase - MUCH better product available and at a better price break. Swanson branded products are usually far better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essiac tea Essiac Tea has phenomenal health benefits. I take 4 ounces daily to maintain good health . As mentioned by another reviewer it is not a tasty tea . I would not recommend for someone looking for the taste but, for health benefits most definitely.
Date published: 2016-04-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from one of the best This is one of the best formulas. I has organic sheep sorrel (Rumex acetosella) (whole plant). A lot of formulas don't include the root. Rene Caisse said the root is very important. I don't think you will be unhappy with this blend. I recommend it to everybody I know. I have looked all over amazon for something better and I come back to this.
Date published: 2016-03-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Purchased For The Taste I have read a number of articles about the effectiveness of daily ingestion of Essiac Tea. My husband and I drink 1/4 cup of Essiac Tea twice per day for health benefits. Just keep in mind, this tea is NOT tasty. It is very strong and thick so don't purchase it for other than its health benefits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Price Not only is this affordable for a form of Essiac tea----they added a lot more.Lots more. Compared it to a lot of other teas and other net companies---this was the best. We are more than happy. We give it to a dog.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-12-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same as original This is the perfect replacement for the original that is no longer produced.
Date published: 2013-06-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-05-04
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bitter taste The herbs were like powder and they seeped through the strainer. It was bitter tasting and gritty. Did not like it much.
Date published: 2013-03-28
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.
