Time For Some Herbal Tea

.

.
Interesting Fact- Herbal tea is not really a tea at all. It's an herbal infusion, also called a tisane but who is going to say, "Time for a cup of herbal infusion." I'll have a cup of herbal tea, thank you.
.
Herbal infusion is the brewing of a medicinal herbs in water. Plants produce a wide range of chemicals in the normal course of their metabolic activities. These chemicals serve different functions for the plant. Some of these chemicals are beneficial to humans. When herbal tea is being brewed, it is these chemicals in the herbs that are released into water.
.
I love the way herbal tea smells and tastes - and of course I'll take all the health benefits I can get. As long as it's organic and fair trade. ;) Below are a few of my favorite teas from Mountain Rose Herbs.
