Top 10 Wholesome Herbal Teas, Caffeine Free By Nature

Last updated: August 21, 2020 at 17:22 pm

What are tisanes?

Herbal teas, also known as tisanes, are beverages prepared by brewing or steeping botanicals such as roots, flowers, fruits, herbs or spices in hot water. Unlike regular teas, herbal teas do not contain the leaves of the tea plant (Camellia sinensis). As such, herbal teas are free from caffeine. What they do possess are the specific properties of the botanical ingredients they are made of.

What herbal teas are good for?

Countless variants and blends of herbal teas are consumed around the world. Some are marketed as holistic and are traditionally used for specific purposes like aiding weight loss or detoxing (Dandelion Root tea), fighting colds and flu (Ginger tea or Mint tea), or inducing good night’s sleep (Chamomile or Lavender tea). Others are just comforting and flavorful beverages (Rooibos or Jasmine tea). What they all have in common is their natural absence of caffeine. Herbal teas thus serve as healthy alternatives to coffee and high-caffeine teas, not to mention sodas and other sugary drinks.


Decaffeinated teas are not herbal teas

Decaffeination only applies to teas that contain caffeine, to begin with. Since herbal teas are naturally caffeine free, they do not need to undergo decaffeination. Therefore, the ‘decaf’ tag only applies to regular teas sourced from the Camellia sinensis plant.

What about flavored teas?

Flavored teas aren’t necessarily herbal either. Various flavoring accents can be added to any tea to achieve a certain aroma, taste or texture. A batch of herbal tea made from all-natural ingredients (sans Camellia sinensis leaves) should not be confused with a black or green tea spiked with spices, herbs, flowers or artificial fruit flavorings.

Tea tips

Always read up on the ingredients in the herbal tea you’re interested in. This will help you cash in on the specific benefits you’re looking for, and avoid picking out something you’re allergic to or not really fond of. It is also best to stick to organic herbal teas and blends. These will be free from chemicals or additives that can interfere with the natural properties of the herbal ingredients.

Are herbal teas safe for pets?

You favorite tea and your beloved pet might seem like a perfect match. However, refrain from offering a cup of tea to your furry friend. Even seemingly harmless ingredients such as chamomile and peppermint should not get into your pet’s food without consulting a vet. Learn more in our article on whether cats can have tea>>

Is it healthy to drink herbal tea every day?

Not all herbal teas are made alike. Unlike regular caffeinated teas, herbal teas don’t come from the same tea plant. Instead, they’re made by steeping a variety of roots, leaves, herbs and flowers. Each herbal tea or herbal tea blend will have its own health benefits, and should be consumed accordingly. Immunity-boosting brews like tulsi basil or turmeric tea can be consumed every day to prevent or manage symptoms of chronic ailments. The same goes for anti-inflammatory herbal teas like ginger, stress-relieving teas like chamomile, and digestion-friendly teas like dandelion or peppermint. Do go over the fine print before buying your herbal teas, though, as it’s important to make sure you’re actually consuming real, organic herbs and not some artificial flavoring or chemical additives. Reputable tea brands clearly list all ingredients on packaging.
