What is the difference between green tea and herbal tea?


    Green tea is a type of tea, derived from the plant “Camelia Sinensus”. The other types of teas are: Black tea, Oolong tea, and White tea. A mainstream variant of black tea in India is “masala chai” translating to “spiced tea” in English. Many teas are blends of two or more types of teas given above.

    Herbal teas are really just “infusions” of any herb: flower, fruit, plant (that is not Camelia Sinensus), spices, etc. infused or steeped in water to produce a “tea” like beverage. Herbal teas may be aesthetically similar to teas and even contain similar taste profiles but will usually lack the nutrients and minerals present in tea. Some popular herbal teas include:

    • Hibiscus tea
    • Ginger tea
    • Chamomile tea
