What the world calls tea is the well-known and much-loved brew of tea leaves.

But several beverages that are also called tea often contain no tea leaves at all. Instead they contain flowers, tree bark, herbs or spices.

Many of these have herbal properties, so it makes sense to switch to them instead of chai if they can help alleviate your problems.


As the days get hotter, it is advisable to switch to lighter teas and drink them in moderation. They'll do your body more good than regular tea, and you'll enjoy some new tastes too.
