The origins of herbal tea can be traced all the way back to 2700 BC in China and traditional Chinese medicine used herbal teas as treatment for various ailments and afflictions. Legend has it that the mythical Emperor Shennong was sitting beneath a tree and boiling a pot of water when some leaves and twigs fell into the pot. As the mix started steeping an appetizing smell began emanating from it and drawn by the smell the Emperor took a sip. The brew had quite the pleasant taste and thus, herbal tea was born. At least, that’s how the story goes. In reality, we don’t know who discovered herbal tea or how they did so, however what we do know for sure is that ancient civilizations like the Greeks and Egyptians utilized what we may consider herbal teas today for medicinal purposes often. Its thanks to them that we can enjoy the taste and benefits of drinking herbal tea today
What is Herbal Tea?
Despite being considered a tea by most, herbal tea is not actually from tea leaves or plants. As the name would suggest, herbal teas are made from steeping herbs, flowers, or roots. The variety of sources begets a variety of flavors that appeal to every palate. Revolution Tea offers Citrus Spice, Honeybush Caramel, Golden Chamomile, and Southern Mint herbal tea blends that are all equally delicious and come with their own benefits.

This herbal tea is packed with antioxidants that boost heart heath and can reduce risk of illnesses like heart disease and cancer. Honeybush Caramel also includes rooibos but has a sweeter taste while still filled with antioxidants.
