Is Chamomile, Rosehip, fruit tea good for the body in general?

Local supermarkets in the neighborhood sell these tea begs really cheap, like $1.50 for 20 bags 1 small box.
But are these tea good? If so, what are they good for? Any side effects?

I am trying to drink more no caffeine teas.

Nothing is 'good' for the body.

Rosehips are a good source of Vitamin C.

Rosehip tea is great for colds.

Chamomile has benefits. But a lot of the inexpensive teas do taste inexpensive. Often found in ethnic oriented delicatessans, the teas are now in main brand grocery stores. My parents really liked the teas for variety away from the Red Roses and Tetley black teas in the 1970s and 1980s. Besides, cooled tea bags make for good compresses for closed eyes.

I really lean on Twinings and Tetley (jasmine tea, camomile) for their herbal teas. Stash tea if you want stronger flavours. Kind of hard to find decaf teas that are not black teas, though. That is why you need to review the major tea brands as they have some decaf options. Celestial Seasonings-its possible to find a big box of their chamomile bags (not decaf) at Dollar Tree for a deal price. Their Sleepytime blend is a light herbal blend tea--perfect for evening sipping.

Don't buy PC brand herbal teas. Their ginger and peach blend is not pleasing after all the effort spent in making a cup of tea. Wish I could remember the US brand of tea Chapters sold in 1-2 serving sizes at their tills in the early 2000s. That ginger and peach blend was AWESOME.
Ube pie-yum! It coordinates with Pantone's colour of the year for 2022.😃

Not a big fan of herbal teas

I remember back in my College Days …
Coffee Houses and Tea Rooms were extremely popular

There were many we’d go to in the afternoon between classes to just sit and talk
Maybe listen to an up & coming musician on an acoustic guitar

I remember you could order all sorts of tea to drink
Or buy to take home … from the many large glass apothecary jars filled with loose tea

Teas with exotic names from far off places …
Darjeeling - Oolong - Gunpowder - English Breakfast - Irish Breakfast - Earl Grey - Orange Spice

My life long love of Tea & Coffee grew in the 1970s cuz of these experiences

These days we buy most of our tea in bags
Tetley is our house brand
But do keep a few other bagged teas on hand too
Twinings being the easiest to find for blends such as Earl Grey
https://twinings.ca/
And when in the USA … I’ll pick up the inexpensive boxes from Bigelow @ The Christmas Tree Shops
https://www.bigelowtea.com/
They always have lots of new flavours to try alongside the standards
On a cruise, we discovered Forte Teas
https://teaforte.com
Fabulous teas, but quite expensive
Makes a nice gift tho for any true tea lover

For cheap herbal teas that actually taste good I like Our Finest Lemon Ginger Herbal Tea from Walmart, $2.47 https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/our-finest ... 0198423884

The $1.50/20 bags tea do not have enough filling in their bags & you tend to have to use 2 bags. Also they are straight-up chamomile for instance & not a blend which is easier to take.
