Why Herbal Teas? Why not simply the Ayurvedic prescriptions

As natural tea, if it is sensibly delectable, individuals wouldn't fret tolerating these home grown teas as a feature of their standard way of life after recuperation.

The tea industry experimented with herbs by blending one or two basic herbs like Tulsi, Mint, Lemongrass, Chamomile, Ginger, etc with Green tea. A new set of entrepreneurs studied established ayurvedic formulations and modified the same to replace bitter-tasting ingredients with additional suitable herbs. Formulations are often tweaked versions of competitor’s formulations in the market. Human psychology also plays a role as people tend to get more convinced about the efficacy of the blend by the number of herbs used in the formulation. Blending 10-20 herbs in a formulation has become a common practice. Not all herbs are water-soluble. Certain herbs are alcohol soluble.

As too many herbs are put in a formulation, and the brewing process is also typically limited to 90 degrees C for 3-4 minutes, the availability of active ingredients in tea is low. However, as these herbal teas are targeted to become part of daily lifestyle, the long term usage of herbal teas should yield positive results.

They spread customer awareness using social media/website and other communication channels.
Premixes and Herbal Extracts
Premixes are mixes of concentrates of tea, flavors, natural product, and spices in strong powder structure that get broken up in hot or cold water. These offer accommodation and taste to make a hot or cold beverage, and hence, have increased a ton of prevalence in workplaces. From the quality and wellbeing viewpoint, normal home grown teas are far better than premixes as the extraction cycle brings about the deficiency of common smell and unique properties of tea/spices.
