Essiac Tea is often thought of as one of the best natural weapons against cancer. This incredible tea gets its name from Canadian nurse Rene Caisse’s last name spelled backwards. Rene observed a Ojibway (Native American) medicine man use a blend of four specific herbs on a cancer patient in the hospital where she worked. She was so amazed at the results that she decided to further research the herbal blend.
Rene along with Dr. Charles Brusch did extensive research at the Brusch Medical Research Center in Massachusetts on the tea and its tremendous health benefits.
Their eight year research concluded that one particular tea formula always seemed to exceed the others. Our particular formula includes four herbs used in the original formula, plus four additional herbs.
Our herbs are all organic, chemical free, pesticide free, non-irradiated, 100% fresh at all times.

*For dogs 85 lbs and under, purchase the 1 oz. bags due to the amount of tea each bag makes. You want the tea to stay fresh in the refrigerator, so you don’t want to make too much at one time. For dogs over 85 lbs, you can purchase the 4 oz. bags which make more tea at one time and dogs this size require more tea.
