Flavor Profile

Dandelion root has a robust, earthy flavor with slightly bitter undertones. Its taste is reminiscent of a blend between coffee and roasted nuts, providing a slightly bitter yet rich and nutty essence. When roasted and brewed, dandelion root can be used as a coffee substitute due to its similar depth of flavor.

 

Appearance & Aroma

In the wild, dandelion roots appear as long, slender taproots covered in a dark brown or blackish outer skin, often with smaller rootlets branching off. They have a rough, rugged appearance, sometimes with dirt or soil residue.

 

The aroma of fresh dandelion root in the wild is earthy and slightly bitter, with herbal notes. When dried, the root's aroma intensifies, becoming more concentrated and earthy, while retaining its slightly bitter scent. Dried dandelion root tends to have a stronger aroma compared to its fresh counterpart.

 

Storage Tips

Store Dandelion root in an airtight container in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight, to maintain its freshness and effectiveness.
