There is a great confusion of terms of what is a Tea, and what are infusions.
Infusions are nothing more than the dissolution of some fruit, herbs or leaves in a liquid.
Starting from this premise, even coffee is an infusion; However, the only one that can be authentically called tea is that infusion with tea leaves. The rest are infusions of other elements.
Infusions have the advantage of distilling the benefits of their ingredients in water, allowing the body to absorb them quickly, effectively, and why not? Very tasty.
