Notwithstanding our love for our traditional cuppa made with English Breakfast tea, milk and sugar, people are now often seen sipping on a variety of herbal teas. Herbal tea, despite the name, isn’t necessarily made from the tea plant itself. It’s usually made by steeping diverse herbs, roots and flowers.
Made popular in ancient times because of its medicinal properties, there’s been a huge rise in its popularity in recent times for that very reason. Herbal teas are some of the healthiest drinks that you can consume. The choice of flavours, tastes and benefits are unlimited for each person. No matter which herbal tea you decide on enjoying, all of them have tremendous nutritional value.
