The Benefits of Drinking Tea

This is a really interesting article. Did you know that technically “tea” is tea only if it comes from the Camellia sinensis plant? All true teas come from this plant. What differentiates black tea from green tea, for example,  is how the tea is processed.

Also, herbal teas are technically not true teas. They’re tisanes or decoctions, depending on how they’re brewed. At the end of the article you’ll find a wonderful herbal tea recipe and directions on how to make it hot, iced or frozen.

Debra explains the processing, benefits, caffeine content and more for the following teas:

  • Black Tea
  • Green Tea
  • White Tea
  • Oolong Tea
  • Pu-erh Tea

She also explains the benefits of herbal “teas” including:

  • Chamomile
  • Passion Flower
  • Hops and Lemon Balm
  • Valerian
  • Ginger
  • Licorice Root
  • Nettle Tea
