2 Cup Herbal Tea - Revitalising Treat
Tisane or “herbal tea”, is a catch-all term for any non-caffeinated beverage made from the infusion or decoction of herbs, spices, or other plant material in water. These drinks are distinguished from caffeinated beverages like coffee, maté, kuding, and the true teas (black, green, white, yellow, oolong, etc.), as well as from decaffeinated tea, in which the caffeine has been removed. In addition to serving as a beverage, many tisanes are also consumed for their perceived medicinal benefits. However, the medicinal benefits of specific herbs are often anecdotal or controversial.
Ginger or ginger root is the rhizome of the plant Zingiber officinale, consumed as a delicacy, medicine, or spice. Ginger cultivation began in South Asia and has since spread to East Africa and the Caribbean.
Tea brewed from ginger is a common folk remedy for colds.
