A herbal tea decoction is a method of preparing herbal remedies that involves simmering tougher plant parts, such as roots, barks, and seeds, in water for an extended period. This process allows for the extraction of the herbal constituents that may not readily release their benefits through the usual steeping process. Decoctions are especially useful for extracting the medicinal properties of these harder plant parts.
