Herbal tea is a delicious beverage that can be enjoyed all year round, regardless of whether you like your tea hot or cold. You can receive the health benefits regardless of the temperature of your tea, but they differ significantly depending on the type of tea you drink.
In contrast to traditional and not very well-known teas such as green teas, oolong teas, or black tea, herbal teas are not very well known in India. There are a multitude of flavors that have emerged when it comes to selecting teas for their taste and health benefits. You can choose from herbal teas from all over the world including China, Africa, and America.
