Essiac Tea Dosage Recommendations in Metric

Take your essiac tea on an empty stomach for best results. The is means you need to avoid eating 2 hours before you take your essiac and 1 hour after you take it. 


If you have a health condition that you'd like to improve, we recommend that you take 270 mL of tea per day, divided into three 90-mL doses.

If you are currently being treated with chemotherapy and/or radiation, we recommend that you take 270-540 mL of tea per day, divided into three 90-180 mL doses.

If you are simply trying to maintain your good health, take 90 mL wice per day. 

Do not brew essiac tea more than two weeks ahead: it will stay good for about 14 days, but after that you should make a fresh batch of tea. 

If you do not like the taste of essiac, you may mix it with natural fruit or vegetable juice. It's best to consume essiac tea cold straight from the fridge without reheating, as that risks overprocessing it.
