For the majority of human history, herbal teas have been used as medicine as well as a popular beverage of choice, with the earliest written records found in a Chinese scholar’s book dated around 300 BC. Before being introduced to herbalism many individuals have a limited definition of what “tea”, black or green, derived from. Both black and green tea are made from the leaves of an evergreen shrub called Camellia Sinensis. This is your “true tea”, but herbal teas are so much more than that.
Teas can be blended to help boost immunity, induce restful sleep, strengthen organs, aid digestion and so much more.
A wonderful way to familiarize yourself with herbs like lemon balm, chamomile, rose, or nettle is to use them in teas. Learning how to prepare herbal teas can seem a bit overwhelming at first, but with an understanding of the properties of the herbs, you can feel confident in blending your herbal teas right at home.
