From relieving anxiety to lessening the symptoms of the common cold, herbal tea has long been praised as one of the healthiest things to consume. But while herbal tea can offer short- and long-term health benefits, it’s the herbs used to brew it that are packed with essential vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants. In this case, what’s the difference between drinking your herbs and eating them?

Herbal tea is produced from dried herbs, spices, flowers, and fruits. This is what gives herbal tea its health properties. Herbs, both medicinal and culinary, can offer a plethora of benefits ranging from improved digestion and immunity to anti-aging.

Preparation and usage are dependent on what condition you are aiming to treat; however, the matter of potency will depend on whether an herb is fresh or dried.

GR8NESS understands that choosing between drinking your herbs and eating them might be a bit of a confusing decision. That’s why we made this convenient infographic to help you understand the difference between herbal tea and fresh herbs.
