About Herbal Tea

Herbal tea, also called herb tea or a tisane, or less commonly, an herbal infusion, is a drink made by infusing the parts of a plant with water, usually hot water. Herbal teas are extremely diverse (arguably more so than proper tea) as they encompass any infusions that do not contain the tea plant (Camelia sinensis). Blends containing the tea plant together with other plants are classified as flavored teas.

Some of the most popular ingredients in herbal teas include mint and chamomile. Both of these herbs are frequently consumed as teas on their own, or blended into herbal tea blends. Fruit and spices are also common ingredients in herbal teas.

Rooibos and honeybush are two plants that, while they do not contain caffeine, are often compared to the tea plant, and which have generated traditions paralleling that of tea drinking.

Caffeine

Most herbal teas are caffeine free, although there are a few plants other than the tea plant which contain caffeine, including yerba maté and the yaupon holly. Cocoa, an occasional ingredient in herbal teas, also contains small amounts of caffeine. A more comprehensive discussion of this topic can be found on our page on herbal teas containing caffeine.

Wellness & medicinal teas

Some herbal teas are used primarily for medicinal purposes; RateTea classifies these as wellness teas and reserves this category for teas that are viewed primarily as a beverage--although many do have health benefits and other health effects.

My, oh my. This tea got a grape flavor. This for sure ain't got some blueberries in it, I'll tell ya'. It's grape. "True Grape" would better suit this tea. It's grape... Why'd it have to be grape... Anywho. I would recommend this tea only to my enemies. If you mistakenly bought it this week, throw it in the trash can w...

Monk's Mead from SerendipiTea

May. 30th, 2020

Here is a nice organic tisane, made predominantly with chamomile and bolstered with some fruits, rose hips, and hibiscus. So it tastes mostly of chamomile, but with a steely, acidic undertone. The aroma is fairly strong and floral. The price is a little high, but I guess that is due to the organic ingredients. This ...

Soba-cha Buckwheat Tea from Maeda-en

May. 11th, 2020

I used to love roasted barley tea, but I've since become gluten-free, and barley contains gluten, so I can no longer drink it. I decided to tack this onto an order from Maeda-en because I was hoping that it would be a good substitute.

Now, to give you some perspective on where my review is coming from, I think buckw...
