Herbal teas or tisanes are not really teas at all but herbal infusions. They do not contain any leaves by the Camellia Sinensis tea plant. Instead, they are a combination of dried herbs, roots, nuts and spices that is naturally caffeine-free. However, there is one herbal infusion that has caffeine, and that is Yerba Mate, a plant indigenous to the subtropical regions of South America. Herbal teas are very popular because of their flavor, fragrance and antioxidant properties. For example, Chamomile is beneficial for digestion. Herbal teas are brewed and stored the same way as traditional teas and can be enjoyed hot or iced.
If you give herbal teas a chance, you will be pleasantly surprised how flavorful a healthy beverage could be.
