Benefit Herbal Tea

Herbal tea, tisane, or ptisan is a herbal or plant infusion and usually not made from the leaves of the tea bush (Camellia sinensis). Typically, herbal tea is simply the combination of boiling water and dried fruits, flowers or herbs. Herbal tea has been imbibed for nearly as long as written history extends.

Among Chinese, herbal tea is commonly known as liong cha (Cantonese) or liang cha (Mandarin).
