The category of Herbals features a variety of petals, leaves, seeds, roots and peels. All the plant parts that are used for either their decorative addition to the tea, their *traditional medicinal benefits, or their unique flavours that enhance the taste of the tea they share the cup with. So for beauty or taste they all have a place in our daily enjoyment of tea.
Thus this is where everything else used to blend with teas or tisanes for flavour, for beauty, for aroma or for balancing the body will be covered.
More will come here as the blends continue.
