We all have sipped a cup or two of these herbal teas at some point of our lives, haven't we?
Or is it because they remind us of a time when mom or grandma gave us a cup of tea when we were feeling poorly?
Here you will learn exactly what infusions are, take a glimpse at their immense variety and, of course, get to know the many health benefits they can provide you.
Let's begin with the most important of all questions!
What is an Herbal Tea?
Tea made from herbs, also known as tisane, is not considered a “real” tea because it does not come from the tea plant Camellia Sinensis.
This fact does not reduce in any way their importance in your life.
You refer to them as infusions, because you pour boiling water over dried or fresh leaves, flowers, grasses, barks, roots, seeds or fruits.
This is how you obtain that special taste you love, combined with the wonderful health benefits each herb unlocks.
Just to give you an idea...
...some are natural herbal sedatives, such as valerian tea, others are cleansing teas, such as ginger. From your hair to your finger nails and all that flows in between there is practically a tea or infusion for every circumstance.
Like this, there are more interesting myths that we believe about herbal infusions that may not always be true. Take a look and find out a little more about these teas at Top 10 Herbal Tea Myths.
