Herbal Teas are consumed for their reputed health benefits which can be many and varied but have rarely been substantiated, but you don't need a scientist to confirm what a lot of people already know.
A lot of these health benefits can be linked to the proven antioxidant properties of herbal teas and also their ability to stimulate, relax or sedate, depending on which particular herb you are brewing.
As a Herbal Tea can literally be made from any plant, herb or spice, the number and variety available is extensive.
So whether you are looking for a gentle pick-me-up or a way to relax, there is sure to be a Herbal Tea for you.
