What is Herbal Tea?

Trista Laborn

Herbal Tea consists of Herbs & Spices. If it doesn’t contain leaves from the Camellia Sinensis plant it is considered an herbal tea. 

 

Herbal tea is also considered to be caffeine-free, except for Yerba Mate (which I will explain later). Herbal tea's you may have heard, that are common are Peppermint, Chamomile, lavender, etc. They are mixed with dried flowers, fruits, herbs, and spices.

The benefits of herbal tea

Herbal Tea has a variety of options when it comes to its blends. There are the blends of rose petals, jasmine, ginger, turmeric, etc. Most herbal teas are caffeine-free as I stated in the above paragraph. The benefits of herbal teas have minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants in a variety of blends. Here are some of our teas you can try with some of their benefits:

 

Relaxation

We have several teas that can help you relax, such as:

Chamomile blend

Chamomile has been said to help with relaxation, even as a sleep aid (source) and help with menstrual cramps. 

- Peppermint blend

Peppermint has been said to help with sleep, digestion, and headache as well (source). Menthol helps relax the muscle which is perfect as a relaxation tea in the evening. 

Boost Immune System

Boosting your immune system doesn't cure a common cold or flu but can aid in preventing the cold or flu. 

- Ginger blend

Ginger tea has a long-standing ingredient for helping with the common cold. The properties in ginger root can help kill rhinoviruses, (source) which causes colds in the first place. It also helps with brain stimulation.

- Elderberry blend

Elderberry is perfect for the immune system (source). It helps fight against viruses and may cause a reduction in inflammation. 

Caffeine-Free

The next alternative to water that is caffeine-free is tea. You would also have to watch for flavorings in tea, that can add to the calories. While water is considered caffeine-free, watch for the ingredients. Sugar and milk can add to the calories as well. 

We have a few caffeine-free herbal blends you can try you may like:

Ruby Red

This bright red hibiscus, infused with sweet licorice root, and peppermint make this the perfect drink during the summer months. 

Barry White

Berry White is a delicate blend of white tea with cranberries with a spicy undertone taste you will love. Great during the holidays as a dessert treat.

In conclusion

Herbal Tea, in the long run, can help fight against the cold/flu season and even add to your health benefits in life. 

Herbal tea comes in a variety of flavors and a bunch of health benefits that can make you healthier and happier. 

ALWAYS consult a doctor on anything new you are trying in your eating and drinking routine to better assist in your health.
