Common Questions about Teas and Infusions
Below are some of the most commonly asked questions about teas and infusions. If your question is not answered, please contact us using the form at the bottom of the page.
What are the differences between teas and infusions?
Infusions are steeped much longer than normal teas and with an increased quantity of herbs. They are sort of like super-teas and are also quite easy to make. The quantity of minerals and herbs found in infusions can be many times greater than in normal teas.
When should I use an infusion instead of tea?
In general, people who are ill use infusions instead of teas in order to get extra herb content, vitamins, and minerals to beat their cold, flu, or other illness. However, there are many people drink infusions every day with few (if any) adverse effects.
