Medicinal teas are not actually teas; they are usually referred to as infusions or herbal teas and are all-natural.
Wide varieties are available - many have significant scientific backing to their claims, others do not. Teas often are better sources of bio-available compounds than the powdered herb (as in capsules and pills), but are relatively weak in action compared to tinctures.
Herbal dietary supplements** have far fewer side effects than prescription- and OTC drugs. Many substances (botanicals) used in these supplements are generally considered as safe (GRAS) by the FDA.

The best way to prepare a tea infusion (herbal tea)
Heat the water to just below boiling.
Medicinal tea Put one heaped teaspoon of medicinal tea per cup in a porcelain- or glass pot. Pour the hot (not boiling!) water over the leaves.
Use mineral- or good quality drinking water.
Let steep for at least 2 - 5 minutes, depending on the species, before straining.
If a stronger infusion is desired, let stand for 10 - 30 minutes before straining and drinking.
Occasionally stirring during steeping is recommended.
A strong infusion should be sipped in small quantities during the day since it may be too strong to drink a cup at once.
Use a tea strainer or mesh ball infuser for this purpose; if you use a paper filter, use the unbleached type.
For a delicious taste, you may add a little lemon juice and honey.
Keep the herbal tea in a cool, dark and dry place.
For the dose of the teas, go to the user page.

Herbal teas (tisanes) are popular because of their fragrance, antioxidant properties and therapeutic applications.
Tropical herbal teas are more diverse in types and more variable in antioxidant properties (AOP) values than temperate herbal teas.
Herbal teas are naturally caffeine-free.
