Alongside the traditional tea families produced from the Camellia Sinensis plant, there are also teas made from other plants’ leaves, such as South Africa’s rooibos or South America’s mate, which have long traditions in their native countries. Then there are the more common domestic infusions such as peppermint, chamomile and nettle that predate the arrival of China tea in Europe.

What seems to unite nearly all herbal and fruit infusions is their absence of caffeine and their numerous health benefits.
