The concept of herbal tea is not as new as we think. It is in fact one of the oldest traditions of human civilization to consume various herbs as herbal tea or in the form of a decoction. Our day is incomplete if we don’t get that perfect cup of tea. Usually there is a craving for some beverage in the morning and it is common in almost all the cultures of whole world. But people who are concerned about their health have started looking for salubrious options. Recently there is an upsurge in the herbal teas market as there are many herbal tea brands available at every store. Many of these do have medicinal values but most of them are packed in such a way that one can get tempted to buy them immediately. Herbal teas should be consumed every day and made a routine as most of them are having some medicinal value attached to them. The medicinal herbal teas are usually in loose packaging rather than tea bags. The herbs should be boiled in water to get maximum benefit from the herbal tea or put in the hot water for a while. Therefore the best way to get maximum benefits from herbal tea is when it is properly boiled in water or milk.
f we boil the herbs in water and then consume that decoction or herbal tea (after filtering and adding some sugar to taste) we will certainly get complete benefits of the herbs.
There are thousands of varieties of herbal teas available nowadays. Since every herb has different action on the body so these herbal teas can be consumed for leisure purpose but also as herbal remedy for various health problems. The exotic taste of herbs is calming and soothing to the mind as well as rich in natural anti-oxidants, thereby preventing from many chronic degenerative diseases.
