Herbal Tea comes under the list of beverages with aroma, taste, and healing properties.

However, when we move towards China, they call it Liang Cha, which means Cooling Tea. According to Chinese people, herbal teas are meant to provide a cooling effect on the body by balancing body temperature. When people fall sick, they usually consume herbal tea to heal.
The benefits of consuming herbal tea include relaxing the body, cooling the body temperature, easing the bad stomach, and reducing the fluid retention in the body.
