There’s nothing like having a cup of herbal tea for mere pleasure or for the purpose of good health.  Herbal teas are a favorite way for many people to enjoy the quality of nutritious herbs.  

Herbal infusions are also a great way to consume herbs.
So what’s the difference between an herbal tea and an herbal infusion?

An herbal tea is most often used with single herbs or a mixture of herbs for the purpose of simply enjoying a cup of tea or during times of illness.

An herbal infusion is very much like a tea, only it is steeped longer and uses a larger amount of herb.  The purpose of an herbal infusion is feeding your body a high dose of vitamins and minerals.  According to Nature Skills, a cup of nettle tea has 5-10 mg. of calcium, while a cup of nettle infusion can contain up to 500 mg. of calcium!  

Clearly, infusions provide many more times the amount of nutrition than tea!  

When do you use a tea and when do you use an infusion?
