TEA VS. INFUSIONS:
Tea - is produced by adding hot water to the leaves of the tea plant, Camellia sinensis. Different processing methods are used to produce hundreds of varieties of tea: black tea (fermented) and the most common in Europe; green tea (not fermented), preserving the green color; oolong (between black and green - there is a partial fermentation).
Infusion - the "teas" of herbs other than Camellia sinensis, or fruit, are not teas, as they come from other plant species (for example, linden or chamomile), which is why they are called infusions.
According to some studies, tea consumption seems to be associated with a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular diseases, these effects being mainly related to the presence of flavonoids, bioactive compounds with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Infusions can be made using different plant species, so their properties can vary. However, in both cases, they are drinks that help in hydrating the body, and you should choose not to add sugar.
In a cool, dry place.
Did you know that dehydration causes fatigue and compromises the proper functioning of the body? On colder days, when you don't feel like drinking water, tea and infusions can help not only prevent dehydration, but also keep your body warmer.
