It is funny how at least here whatever it is in a tea bag is called tea. Mint tea. Herbal tea. Sleepy tea. Regardless of if it has tea leaves in it.

But then idk what you would call it. Bag of mint leaves in boiled water

When there's no tea in it, you've got a tisane or an infusion.

Ahhh. But then I sound all fancy being like I’m having some mint infusion. Although even in this comment it has grown on me

Dethblud is correct. It is a tisane. Not a tea.

How can a member of my family say something so horrible!?

Tisane is the old word, rarely used these days. Herbal "tea" and sometimes infusions are the terms used more often, now
