Herbal tea

Herbal tea is a yummy and healthy drink that comes from plants that are good for your body. You know how you have regular tea with different flavors like lemon or peach? Well, herbal tea is like that, but the flavors come from plants like mint, chamomile, or ginger.

Plants like these are picked from the ground and dried out, then put into little bags that you put into hot water. The hot water helps the good stuff from the plants come out into the water, which makes the tea taste and smell really good.

Herbal tea is good for your body because it has a lot of vitamins and minerals that can help you feel better if you are sick, or just help keep you healthy. Some kinds of herbal tea can even help you sleep better, calm your tummy if it hurts, or give you energy if you feel tired.

So, the next time you want a yummy and healthy drink, try some herbal tea!
