Cleansing herbal teas are becoming increasingly popular for their aromatic flavors and healthful benefits. These teas are designed to cleanse the body of harmful toxins produced by free radicals and pollutants. Sipping a relaxing, soothing cup of tea can be even more enjoyable when the tea becomes part of a healthy diet. Among the cleansing herbal teas known for their medicinal properties are Rooibos Herbal Tea, Honeybush Tea, Tulsi Tea and other specific herbs added as cleansing ingredients.
Rooibos Herbal Tea is a member of the legume family and is often referred to as Red Bush or Red Tea. It grows northwest of Cape Town in South Africa. Rooibos Tea, a naturally decaffeinated tea, has become popular for its detoxifying properties. It is enjoyed for its sweet, nutty flavor and pleasant aroma. Rooibos (or Red Bush) is the tea made popular among reading groups because of its prominent place in The Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency book series by Alexander McCall Smith.
Honeybush Tea, also in the legume family and a relative of rooibos, grows in South Africa as well. It is named for its sweet honey-like scent that makes it so appealing. It is considered valuable for slowing the aging process and preventing disease when consumed regularly. It has a mellow taste with sweet, spicy floral notes balanced with apricot and peach flavors. This tea may also be enjoyed by adding it to baked goods for a distinctive flavor.
Other herbs that are rich in antioxidants promote a healthy immune system. Adding them to rooibos and honeybush can be even more beneficial. These include juniper berries, marigold, chamomile, dandelion and rose hips. The juniper acts as a diuretic, and the marigold cleanses and detoxifies the body. Chamomile, dandelion and rose hip revitalize the liver and cleanse the bloodstream.
Tulsi Herbal Tea has been a part of Indian culture for thousands of years because of its many benefits. This pure herbal tea is naturally decaffeinated and has a mild sweet mint flavor. Current research shows that Tulsi Tea has numerous preventative and curative properties with its rich supply of antioxidants and other nutrients.
With the availability of cleansing herbal teas, tea drinkers can enjoy sampling all the different varieties. The soothing and restorative powers of tea have been known for many generations, and it is a welcome boon to be able to enjoy a cup of tea that cleanses the body while soothing the soul.
