What is Herbal Tea?
Let’s talk about what Herbal Tea is.
The so-called herbal tea is usually brewed with aromatic herbs that boast medicinal value. There may be leaves, roots, stems, skin, and even seeds taken from herbs, flowers and other plants that can be brewed into herbal tea. Generally, it refers to tea brewed from plants that do not contain stimulant ingredients such as caffeine and theophylline.
Basically, herbal tea can be divided into two types, one is scented tea without flowers, and the other is a herbal blend with flowers but without tea. The first is the actual tea we drink, and the second is a substitute tea, which is the so-called “non-tea tea”.
With its characteristics of relaxing the body and emotion, relieving stress and changing mood, herbal tea is very suitable for drinking in daily life. Scented tea uses Oolong tea, black tea, and green tea as the base notes, and the combination makes the tea brew more mellow and rich. And herbal tea is simply based on “flowers”, through the pharmacological properties produced by the combination of flowers, so that herbal tea can play a role in life and health care.
The delicate notes of jasmine in this tea are a reminder of the sweet scent of your skin and the gentle touch of your lips.

How to Brew Herbal Tea?
Herbal tea has attracted much attention for its taste, efficacy and special colour. But are you aware that knowing how to brew herbal tea is also very important before enjoying herbal tea? In fact, as long as you follow the three steps, you can also make throbbing herbal tea and enjoy the beauty of life!
Brew Herbal Tea Tip 1
When brewing herbal tea, there are two ways, one is a single blend and the other is a mixed blend. In the evaluation of the amount, it is assumed that it is a single flower and herbal ingredients. If it is brewed with 500cc, you should take 5-10 grams of flowers and herbs; if it is a mixed blend, you should take 2-3 grams of each type of flower and herbs. Come and make a pot of colourful and loving herbal tea.
Brew Herbal Tea Tip 2
If you want to get a good taste out of herbal tea, you can have a ratio concept. 1 teaspoon of herbal tea for 1 person can be matched with 2 teaspoons of rock sugar or honey. It is recommended to soak for 2-3 minutes and then use a tablespoon to stir well. If you want to brew a lot today, the ratio is 3:2 (grams), and the brewing time should not exceed 5 minutes.
Brew Herbal Tea Tip 3
If you want to use the method of double brewing, you must first put the flower and herbs into the teapot, and then pour the boiling hot water. After the flowers and plants are all soaked, wait 3-5 minutes for the taste before determining whether to add other additions.
The Pros and Cons of Herbal Tea?
What are the precautions for drinking herbal tea?
1. Avoid drinking herbal tea on an empty stomach
Most herbal teas have the effect of helping digestion, so it is recommended to drink it after meals to avoid stomach discomfort with an empty stomach. There are different herbal teas that are suitable for different times of the day, such as herbal teas with mint and rosemary. Drinking it in the morning can refresh your mind and activate the vitality of the whole day, while herbal tea with lavender, chamomile, and lemongrass can soothe your body and mind, relieve you from a tiring day, and help you sleep better.
2. Better suitable for hot brewing herbal tea
Most of the ingredients of herbal tea are the flowers, roots, stems and leaves of plants. Therefore, brewing with hot water is the best way to release the nutrients and aroma of herbal tea. 2~4 grams of herbal tea should be brewed with 500cc of hot water, and tea bags should be taken out after 3-5 minutes.
3. Need to drink herbal tea as soon as possible
When the fresh herbal tea comes into contact with the outside air, it will begin to oxidise gradually. At this time, you will find that the colour of the herbal tea will gradually become darker and the aroma will fade. The best way is to finish the tea as soon as possible, even if it is left indoors, it should be no more than 3 hours.
