When Is Tea Not Really A Tea?

Only beverages made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant can accurately be called tea. Herbal "tea" such as chamomile or any made from leaves, flowers, roots and bark are considered infusions or tisanes. White, Green, Black and Oolong tea are all derived from the Camellia sinensis and therefore real tea.
