What is herbal tea?
Unlike traditional teas (black tea, green tea, white tea, and oolong), herbal teas do not come from the common tea plant whose scientific name is camellia sinensis. In fact, calling herbal teas “teas” is actually a popular misnomer (the correct term is herbal “tisanes”) given these brews are derived from seemingly everything but the common tea plant!
Herbal tea or tisanes are umbrella terms to cover any beverage made from infusing flowers, fruit, spices, roots, leaves or herbs in hot water (i.e. brewed the exact same way as traditional tea) and has its origins in both Chinese traditional medicines and Indian Ayurvedic practices.
Here at The Tea Centre, we have partnered with renowned Australian naturopath Mim Beim to create a number of tailored herbal blends that support your mind and body’s wellbeing. We suggest purchasing her Tea: Health & Happiness book for an even more thorough breakdown on what makes herbal teas so good for you!

Even in contemporary times, many naturopaths, doctors and holistic practitioners recommend tisanes to help assist with mental and bodily function. From your head right down to your toes, there’s a tisane to alleviate, prevent, or remedy every ailment you can think of.
