Thanks to Sylvia for providing information on herbal teas this week. Staff and trainees are getting an opportunity of tasting some of these beautiful teas and learning about their benefits!


What is herbal tea?

Herbal tea is an infusion of leaves, seeds, roots or bark, extracted in hot water. In drinking a well-steeped herbal tea, we get all the plant’s benefits in an easily digestible form. Herbal tea has lots of wonderful health benefits. From soothing a troubled tummy to easing insomnia and calming a troubled mind, anxiety herbs have all sorts of healing powers. Drinking herbal tea can also be a great source of vitamins and minerals.

Some of the teas we tried out were Peppermint, Lemon Ginger, Chamomile, Rooibos ( Red bush tea), Rosehip, Dandelion and Lemon Balm (Melissa) tea
