Herbal Tea looks like tea and is brewed in the same way as tea, but is actually an infusion, (called a tisane). Tisanes are made from mixtures of dried leaves, seeds, grasses, nuts, barks, fruits, flowers, or other botanical elements that give them their taste and provide the benefits of herbal teas. Herbal teas contain no caffeine and may consist of one main herbal ingredient or may be a blend of herbal ingredients, designed to bring about a specific purpose, such as relaxation, rejuvenation, relief from a specific condition, among other things.
