Herbal tea is made by steeping the flowers, leaves, seeds, roots, stems and petals of a multitude of plants and flowers. The herbal tea comes in hundreds of different varieties, some common and others that are more obscure, and depending on your area of the world, different types will be more widely available.
The health benefits of each type of herbal tea depend on the composition, which may be a single ingredient or a combination of different herbs and flowers. Another name for herbal tea is “tisane”, although this is less commonly used.
Herbal teas and fruit teas should not be confused with true teas, which are prepared from the cured leaves of the tea plant, as well as from decaffeinated tea, in which the caffeine has been removed.
