Which are the best herbs to use when making herbal teas?

The most popular herbs to infuse are camomile, hibiscus and peppermint. A mixture of mint and lime flower is very common in France, as is lemon verbena. An unusual tea can be made with fresh sage. Simply put a handful of freshly gathered sage leaves in a small teapot and pour over about 500 ml of nearly boiling water. Then let it stand, covered, for 4-5 minutes, before pouring into cups. Sage tea is reputed to act as a digestive aid, an antiseptic and a slight stimulant.
