We recently found a great infographic (down below) that illustrates an easy to read flow chart containing some well known herbal teas, along with the reasons they are commonly used.
There's a couple of things we'd be adding or changing within this graph, but for the most part, it's quite good.
Feel free to pass this along, print it for your fridge, or save to your computer!
