Most herbal teas are caffeine-free so they make great nighttime drinks. See how to make herbal tea from hibiscus to chamomile, properly, both hot and cold.
Herbal tea, also know as tisanes, are drinks made from steeping herbs, flowers, spices, or dried fruit in water.
- Almost all herbal tea are caffeine-free. (Yerba mate is the exception.)
- Since there’s no caffeine, you can drink it all day, into the evening without keeping you up at night.
- Herbal tea is super easy to brew and doesn’t need to be as precise as making regular tea like black or green tea.
Herbal Tea Isn’t Real Tea
Herbals teas are not real tea since they don’t come from the camellia sinensis, the tea plant.
Real tea, like black tea and green tea, are made from leaves from the camellia sinensis plant, and they all contain caffeine.
Herbal Tea Tips
- Loose herbal tea will always make a better tasting cup than herbals in tea bags.
- Herbal tea doesn’t get bitter like black or green tea does when you steep it longer. If you want a stronger brew, steep it for longer than 5 minutes.
- If you like herbal tea sweetened, try date syrup or honey as an alternative to sugar.
