Generally, we avoid such teas in India, choosing our regular tea over them. But we think that herbal tea should not be a comparison for the regular tea. However, it should be treated as a separate essential item different from the regular tea. Also, not all herbal teas are green teas, unlike common parlance. Some of them are made from herbs, or leaves or even dried flowers. But most have soothing and calming effects on the body and mind. Also, the way in which these herbal teas have to be prepared and consumed is different for them. For example, chamomile and hibiscus tea has to be only placed in boiling water. Some like buransh tea should be consumed with a few drops of lemon to counter the mild bitterness. Hibiscus tea has a fruity colour and flavour unlike chamomile for which a taste has to be developed. However, their benefits always outweigh their taste if not as expected.
Common herbal tea ingredients include herbs and spices like chamomile, peppermint, ginger, lavender, and more. Herbal teas are some of the most popular types of teas, and have been used for centuries both as a tasty drink and as herbal remedies.
