When people come into my herb shop we always offer a free sample of our “tea on tap” that day. Some people love it and others say “Oh, I don’t like tea”. To them I reply, “Neither do I”. Then I start to explain the differences between regular tea (made from the leaves of the Camellia plant) and herbal tea (made from one, or a mixture of hundreds of herbal plants. Technically if you are drinking an herbal tea it is actually called a Tisane.
Some herbal teas are medicinal, and some are just great tasting, and some are both.
