There are lots of different store bought herbal tea blends that you can buy, but one of the best ways to save some money and to customize your herbal tea just the way you want it is to make your own DIY herbal tea blends at home. Using DIY herbal tea recipes allows you to buy herbs in bulk and the cost per cup of tea ends up being a lot cheaper than it is if you buy individual tea bags. And you also have a lot more flexibility in which herbs and how much of each herb you want to use.
When you make your own DIY herbal tea recipes, you get to decide which herbs you want to include in your blend based on which flavors you like as well as the beneficial properties of the herbs that you want to be able to use. While a store bought immune supporting herbal tea might include an herb that you really don’t like the taste of, for example, when you make your own blend at home you can choose immune supporting herbs that you enjoy and leave out the ones that you don’t.
I’ve collected 10 recipes from some of my fellow bloggers with some great herbal tea recipes that you can make yourself at home. Some of these recipes contain true tea leaves from the camellia sinensis plant and others are made entirely from herbs. Even though we commonly use the phrase “herbal tea,” hot drinks made from only herbs are technically referred to as herbal infusions or tisanes since they don’t contain any actual tea leaves. But since the phrase “herbal tea” is so familiar, I tend to refer to them as herbal teas even though they aren’t really true teas.
Some of the herbal tea recipes below are ones that you could enjoy at any time of the day and some are specifically geared towards helping you wind down for bedtime in the evening or for supporting your body when you feel like you might be fighting off an illness. And others are perfect for any time you just want a delicious hot beverage to drink on a chilly day.
