Herbal Tea News

Herbal Tea refers not to Black, Green, White or Oolong. In fact, it doesn’t even come from the Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant. Instead, this is a type of Tea that isn’t technically a “Tea” at all! Almost all consumable herbs can be used in the making of Herbal infusions. The most popular ones, however, are Peppermint Tea, Camomile Tea and Hibiscus Tea. Whatever your preference, you’ve chosen well with The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company. Since 2010, global Herbal Tea sales have increased by around 30%. But why, exactly? Taste has a significant role to play. Another factor is its well-documented health benefits. Indeed, depending on which type you choose, your morning cuppa could improve your wellbeing in a plethora of ways. If you’d like to find out more, be sure to read our blogs below.
