Benefits of Herbal Teas
Unlike more well-known options such as black tea or green tea, herbal teas are derived from a variety of dried flowers, spices, herbs and fruits. This allows for a wide variety of flavors and options when it comes to choosing teas for taste and health benefits. You’ll find popular herbal teas from all over the globe, including China, Africa, and the Americas.
Drinking herbal tea can have both short-term and long-term health benefits and with all of the wonderful flavors to choose from you are sure to find at least a few that you truly enjoy. They are a wonderful way to relax and enjoy life at a slower pace. To gain the most health benefits from herbal tea, brew with loose leaf tea rather than tea bags. Loose tea contains full leaves that are chock full of nutrients while tea bags are generally the result of large-scale tea production.
