When people think of herbal tea, they usually think of the health benefits these teas possess. What many don't realize, is that “herbal teas” are not really teas. A true tea can only come from the leaves and buds of Camellia Sinensis, the plant that gives us black, purple, oolong, green, and white tea. Fascinating facts aside, caffeine-free herbal teas taste great! Herbal teas are made using various herbs and fruits, each blend having it's own unique taste and benefits.
