What is herbal tea?
Herbal tea is an infusion of leaves, seeds, roots or bark, extracted in hot water. In drinking a well-steeped herbal tea, we get all the plant’s benefits in an easily digestible form. Herbal tea has lots of wonderful health benefits. From soothing a troubled tummy to easing insomnia and calming a troubled mind, anxiety herbs have all sorts of healing powers. Drinking herbal tea can also be a great source of vitamins and minerals.
Some of the teas we tried out were Peppermint, Lemon Ginger, Chamomile, Rooibos ( Red bush tea), Rosehip, Dandelion and Lemon Balm (Melissa) tea
