What is Herbal Tea?
Tea is the most popular flavored beverage throughout the world, even beating out coffee in its ubiquity. Typically made by steeping selected leaves or other botanical ingredients in water, tea was discovered in ancient China and initially valued for various wellness benefits, along with spiritual associations. As the centuries passed, the herbal drink became more widespread and casually used, eventually moving beyond China to Japan and further abroad. By the late 1700s, tea had a major presence in England, and famously played a role in the American Revolution during the Boston Tea Party of 1773.
The most common forms of tea are black tea and green tea. These two kinds are derived from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, along with oolong and white varieties. Although all of these teas have the same source, their color and nutrient content vary widely based on how they are processed. Other kinds of teas may be made without Camellia sinensis leaves. Many of these varieties lack the stimulating caffeine of traditional leaves and are often made from fruit or other herbs.
In recent decades, researchers have confirmed what Buddhist monks and other tea aficionados have known for ages—that these botanically infused beverages appear to be associated with considerable health benefits. Though wellness-supportive properties differ from variety to variety, most teas, whether consumed hot or cold, feature natural flavonoids that have oxidative-stress fighting antioxidants.**
Herbal Tea Products
Herbal teas are produced from Camellia sinensis plant leaves and/or other botanical sources. The specific method of processing the tea determines what variety it will be. These teas are commonly offered in tea bags or as loose leaves. Some kinds are available as a liquid or powder (notably matcha). Certain teas naturally carry caffeine content, but others do not or are decaffeinated. Green tea is additionally found in capsule form.
