The Rich Variety of Herbal Teas

Aug 17, 2007
In our quest to enjoy all sorts of taste experiences, many of us have a lot of fun experimenting with herbal teas. Known for their variety and in some cases their health benefits, enjoying herbal fusions has become a popular pastime with quite a number of people. Here are some of the reasons why and how we enjoy herb teas.

For many of us, we first heard of teas fused with various herbs as part of folk medicine treatments known to our grandparents. If a family member had trouble sleeping at night, a nice cup of chamomile tea might be just the think to bring about sweet dreams. Having a cup of peppermint tea may help an upset stomach. For someone suffering with the common cold, an herbal tea made from brewing apple peelings and orange rinds might help to hasten recovery. Just how effective these teas actually were is open for debate. But it cannot be denied that they certainly helped one to believe that the ailment was now on the way to being healed.

For other people, fusions have not been so much about treating ailments as preventing them. There are a number of loose and bagged teas on the market today that purport to provide partial amounts of the nutrition that each of us need in order to be healthy. Drinking our way to health is particularly attractive to many of us, in that we perceive it as much easier to get part of our daily vitamins and nutrients from herbal teas than it is to sit down to a full meal.

However, many of us aren't all that concerned about health benefits every time we have a cup of herb tea. Instead, we are in it for the rich flavors. Some of us get quite a kick out of combining our lemon grass tea with some apple cinnamon tea and seeing what the fusion tastes like. We enjoy the variety of different types of tea and how easy it is to brew a cup when we are in the mood for something a little different. Sometimes we like to take our newly discovered blends as a piping hot beverage, and other times we like them chilled and served with ice cubes. Whatever our preference, the prevalence of several brands of herb tea makers on the grocery store shelves is mute evidence that herbal teas are not just for the health food store anymore. Why not take a look today? You may find one or two blends that would be a lot of fun to try.
