This is actually from the rhododendron family, and isn't really a tea although the leaves can be steeped and drunk as a tisane.
I wouldn't recommend it though because it contains ledol a poisonous substance which will cause cramps and worse. The leaves have also been used in boiling water as a facial steam bath which is probably preferableSmile This is still done by many of the Native Americans.
Many of these attractive little bushes grow along the roadside near my home.
