Do you think herbal tea is good for health or not?

I have heard so many times that India runs on tea. We Indians consume tea in great quantity. Every morning starts with the tea and there is no occasion where tea isn’t served. From small street stalls to the fine dining restaurants, tea has got its roots everywhere. And we have every moment and every excuse to drink tea. If you have headache, drink tea, if you are not feeling well, drink tea. If you are working, take a tea break, if you feel like sleeping while work, take a cup of tea.

It has been reported that herbal tea is good for health.  Tea has become a social drink and India is the largest exporter of tea in the whole world. But it has been found that c...
