What are the herbal drinks?

There has been a growing interest in the health benefits that can be derived from taking herbal extracts and this has led to the inclusion of these types of extracts in some beverages.

Herbal drinks are obtained by decoction or concoction from flowers, fruits, leaves, and roots/rhizomes; popular traditional herbal drinks are made from roselle, pomegranate, sugar apple, tamarind, lime, carambola, longan, mulberry, native apricot, and bael fruit.

Normally fresh or dried herbs are used for making herbal drinks. Decoctions are made by boiling herbs on water over a low flame until ½ the amount of water remains. Decoctions are best suited for roots, stems, bark and fruit.
