Written by Dr. Kaveri Kuttappa,
Preparing and consuming herbal teas is considered to be a very beneficial habit that contributes to good health and wellbeing.
The tradition of making herbal teas is more than 5000 years old. In fact, the practice was originally initiated as Kwatha/Decoction wherein herb-infused concoctions were prepared, and the method used was similar to the one used for making tea.
Another practice is brewing tea leaves – also referred to as “steeping.”
This particular practice dates back to early Chinese civilization. Steeping involves soaking the herbal tea leaves in a liquid (typically water) so as to extract maximum flavors from the leaves and to soften them. In addition to having several health benefits, herbal teas are widely known for promoting weight loss as well.
Herbal teas are not just delicious but they have health benefits as well.
Here are some herbal tea recipes that will help boost your body’s defenses and make you feel healthy.
While we encourage you to consume these teas, also remember that the goodness and positive effects of herbal teas do not work in isolation.
In addition to consuming a cup or two of herbal tea, you must also have a well-planned and well-practiced diet and fitness regime.

Gather the ingredients.
Hibiscus tea has a beautiful reddish pink tint and tastes absolutely refreshing. It can be served warm or cold.
Prepping hibiscus flowers: If you are using fresh hibiscus flowers, remove the calyx or the green part at the base of the flower to which the stem is attached. You can also remove the pistil which is the thin thread-like tube in the middle of the flower which has pollens attached to it, or you can keep it. You don’t need to do this if you are using dried flowers.
Boiling the tea: Bring the water and hibiscus flowers to a boil in a large pot. As soon as the water starts to boil, turn off the gas and cover the vessel with a lid. At this point, you can add other herbs such as basil and lemon grass. After 15-20 minutes, remove the lid and mix in the honey and lime juice till completely combined. Strain the tea into a cup and serve hot.
You can either serve hibiscus tea warm or you can chill it in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. Either way it tastes delicious!
