Herbal teas have been associated with ancient medicine in many cultures across the world. The art of brewing flowers, herbs and spices in order to soothe and cure ailments have been a ceremonious affair in both, Indian as well as Chinese medicine, as far as it is known. These infusions or tisanes are essentially a juxtaposition of what we usually associate with the idea of the beverage.

With most caffeinated drinks known to be causing insomnia and high blood pressure along with other side effects, most tisanes are known to benefit in more ways than one, towards well-being of one’s health. Following is a curated list of five non-caffeinated infusions, of which you can pick your virtue and lead a healthy and happy lifestyle.

Chamomile Tea

The flavonoids in chamomile tea play a prominent role in the healing effects of the buds. It is known to be particularly effective for women who struggle with menstrual pain or an onset of osteoporosis. It is also widely known to calm the nerves and help in inducing peaceful and quality sleep at night. Add the chamomile flowers to a cup of hot water and let it sit for a few minutes before you strain and drink it with a bit of honey or lemon.
