Hi, I'm glad to be in this page...I'm looking to learn more about herbal teas and how it will benefit my overall health. Is there a difference between store bought teas vs teas that are premium teas?

I don't drink store teas so not really sure what the differences are.
But I would guess the premium teas are better quality than the store teas. I tried searching for the answer but all I found was the differences between True Tea and Herbal Tea and why loose leaf tea is better than teabags.
The best teas are the ones you grow yourself they will be the freshest and highest quality and you know for sure what you are drinking.

Well, any teas or herbal infusions are plant parts soaked in water. What would be not raw about that?

I've not heard of the one you are considering. Some of the online tea companies offer sampler boxes with an assortment of different flavors. I find if I don't care for some, I have a friend that usually does so I share. She will do the same. I lean toward those with citrus or hibiscus blends. On occasion I like mints.

A couple of online companies that have assorted teas listed are Stash or Tea Forte'.

I'm interested in warm tea or iced tea. Tell me what you buy, where you buy it, and I'd love some tips on preparation as well.

By the way that you linked "alvita hawthorn tea", I can't decide whether you are trying to drive traffic to the "myorganicherbaltea" site, or if you are looking for information on tea making.

Personally, I have some patches of mint...
I have patches of yaupon... and while I tried growing Roselle, I haven't been real successful with it, and buy the tea a couple boxes at a time... really like it...

'Celestial Seasonings' brand, no caffeine teas. I love Bengal Spice, heavy cinnamon. Also love their berry teas and the peach one, but my daughter calls them koolaid without sugar, chuckl.
So many roads to take, choices to make, and laughs to share!

Like Mindy03 said, fresh tea made from herbs that you've grown yourself or bought fresh from a grower will always be better. However, storebought tea can still be relatively high quality and nourishing! When I want something quick and easy, I usually choose teas from Yogi or Traditional Medicinals.
