Due to its health advantages, herbal teas have seen a recent spike in popularity. An infusion or combination of different leaves, fruits, bark, roots, or flowers from virtually any edible, non-tea plant makes herbal tea. Tisanes are the name given to herbal teas throughout Europe and other parts of the world.
People have used herbal teas for thousands of years to both enhance their health and just to enjoy. Teas made from herbs may help you feel less stressed and anxious as well as sleep better.

A daily cup of herbal tea may help you maintain good health and lower your stress levels.

Before adding any herbal teas (or herbal supplements, for that matter!) to your diet, make sure to see your doctor. Medications or medical issues may be impacted by some teas.
