Herbal Tea is an infusion or blend of various leaves, fruits, bark, roots, or flowers belonging to almost any edible, non-tea plant. In Europe and other areas of the world, herbal tea are commonly known as TISANES.
Herbal Tea is not technically a true tea, as it does not derive from the camellia sinensis plant (i.e. the plant that is used to create black, oolong, green, and white teas)
Herbal Tea can be created from almost any combination of natural ingredients, there are a vast number of herbal tea varieties each with their own flavor qualities and health benefits.
