Herbal Teas make a great addition, for hydration, as count towards daily water intake, but for therapeutic use. Herbal teas are infusions made from a variety of plant materials, including leaves, flowers, seeds, or roots.

When choosing herbal tea brand ideally go for:

- Good quality high street brands such as Pukka, Yogi, Dragonfly, and Tea Pigs

- Only pure ingredients and not ones with natural flavourings and other additives

- Organic where possible

- with no bleached or plastic tea bags

Buying high quality loose leaf tea and using a herbal tea pot is often the best, most superior & cost effective way of drinking herbal tea on a regular basis. Loose tea gives you the option of mixing teas to meet your needs or buy a pre-blended mix.I really love the brand below as organic, clean & great quality & price & with refillable pouches.

I highly recommend this particular herbal tea pot - it is easy to clean, pours well & makes 2 cups of herbal tea -
