Organic Merchant Essiac Tea is a purifying bitter decoction developed by Canadian Nurse Rene Caisse including sheep sorrel root. This time honoured Ojibwe formulation has traditional benefits and plant compounds that are anti inflammatory, anti oxidant, anti tumour, detoxifying and laxative which may support natural detoxification via the kidneys, liver and lymphatic system, soothe inflammation, tone digestion, fortify immunity and protect against chronic disease. Enjoy as a daily tonic. Naturally caffeine free. Essiac Tea has a slightly earthy bitter taste and is designed to aid the body in removing toxins and wastes, allowing cellular renewal and improved health. Each ingredient helps boost the immune system and detoxify the body. It is also good for gastrointestinal diseases, diabetes and your overall good health.

Rene Caisse’s traditional formula has many health benefits and is commonly used for chronic conditions and as an alternative treatment for cancer. While it is not officially recommended as a cancer treatment, there are studies that show an improved sense of well being for those who consume it. Further studies indicate that the essiac herbal tea formula “possesses potent antioxidant and DNA protective activity, properties that are common to natural anti cancer agents.”

Organic Merchant organic herbal blend is a detox for our body and it will help discharge waste and toxins. There can be minor symptoms that appear when starting to drink essiac tea including, headaches, mild diarrhoea, nausea and a runny nose. The main side effects of this blend all come down to dosage. If too much of it is consumed, it could lead to gastrointestinal discomfort, diarrhoea, diabetes, kidney stones and headaches/nausea. To avoid such side effects, we recommend starting with a small dose at first, until you know how your body reacts to it.

Miron violet glass is the best way to package herbs. This is because of the unique structure of the glass and its ability to maintain the quality of the product inside over a significant period of time. Miron glass only allows violet light (ultraviolet A (UVA), infrared (IR) and violet lights) to penetrate through its surface and blocks out all other visible light within the spectrum that have been known to accelerate the decaying process. So no loss of colour and no signs of drying out! It also means that the therapeutic benefit of the tea stays intact for longer. Miron glass is also eco friendly. It is made from natural raw materials and is reusable and 100% recyclable. This is extremely important to Organic Merchant as they are 100% plastic free in their production process and want to ensure all packaging they offer has the smallest impact on the enviroment as possible. A significantly longer shelf life, reusing and recycling all help to preserve our planet’s natural resources.

Brewing Instructions 

  • Combine 10g of loose leaf Essiac Tea per 1 litre of filtered water in a saucepan on the stove
  • Boil, on high for 10 minutes
  • Turn off the heat and stir the mixture, ensuring you get all the residue from the sides and lid
  • Allow to cool (keeping it on the stove top) and steep further over night or approximately 10 hours
  • Strain and store the mixture in a sterilised container in the fridge until ready to serve


The amount of tea consumed depends on you and the condition of your health. Typically, it is recommended a 30 ml dosage of herbal tea diluted in 60 ml of hot water. This should be sipped slowly, preferably before bed or on rising. Food should be avoided at least an hour after drinking the tea. The reason for sipping the tea is that the tongue is the initial point of interaction with the herbs and some of the components start their action here, specifically the bitter actives. Organic Merchant recommends starting with a small dose at first, until you know how your body reacts to it.

Please talk to your health practitioner prior to taking this organic Essiac blend, if you:

  • are trying to conceive, currently pregnant or nursing
  • have colitis or ulcers
  • are known to have increased blood iron levels
  • have any sort of kidney issues
  • currently experience diarrhoea or any sort of bowel obstruction
  • are looking for an alternative treatment for brain tumours
