3 Ways to Change Essiac Taste Without Changing the Effectiveness

Real Essiac always tastes a little bit bitter. If it's not bitter, it's not real Essiac!

However, there are things you can do to alter the taste of Essiac to your liking. The good news is that most folks get used to the taste of Essiac fairly quickly. Until then, feel free to use the methods described below. 

Although just about everyone gets used to the taste of Essiac after taking it for a few days, it can help to know how to change the taste if you need to!

Essiac can be described as having a slighlty bitter and grassy taste, somewhat like green tea. But don't worry - it's not something to be afraid of. There are ways to help if you don't care for slightly bitter things.

In order to make the taste more palatable if it's not a flavor you love, here are some ideas.

Add any of these things AFTER you're prepared the Essiac Tea batch:

  • Stevia - Purchase organic stevia here
  • Lemon juice
  • Natural fruit or vegetable juice (with no added sugar)
  • Monk fruit
  • Herbal teas (such as ginger or hibiscus)


Honey is allowed too, but since this tea is supposed to be taken cold, the honey won't be likely to melt into the Essiac Tea very well. Click here to read the full list of what is/is not considered OK to add to Genuine Essiac.

The other simple tip that can help as you grow used to it is to take your Essiac serving with your nose plugged. Then rinse your mouth out with a flavor of choice, such as orange juice. After you've rinsed, release your nose. You will be no worse for the wear. You shouldn't have to do this for very long.

It's theorized that, the more bitter Essiac tea tastes to you, the more toxic your body is and the more you actually need the tea! So try to be brave and drink it even if you don't love it. As your system gets cleaned out, the taste should bother you less and less. Trust me, I had trouble too at the beginning with Essiac taste, but now if I don't take it for a few days I really begin to crave it. There is light at the end of the tunnel, I promise!

At the end of the day, it's silly to let a bitter taste stop you from consuming this life-affirming tea. Remember, it only takes a couple of seconds to consume a 3 oz. serving. You can do it!

The other interesting thing is that we have a lot of customers who absolutely love the taste, and did from day 1! You never know. So please don't be afraid to give Genuine Essiac tea a try. Keep in mind, it's not a tea designed to be taken for pleasure, but they key is that it's only 3 oz. at a time and it will be swallowed before you know it.
