Keep in Mind - Real Essiac has a slightly bitter taste, and it's due to what is in authentic Essiac tea.

If it's not slightly bitter, realize that you don't have real Essiac! But if you are not a fan of bitter flavors, never fear. You can add natural fruit or vegetable juice or stevia to your tea to help yourself out. Order organic stevia here. Most people get used to the taste pretty quickly. Avoiding shopping for Essiac based upon the mildest taste — you will be signing yourself up for milder results, too.
