Exactly. Back in the day of The Now-Defunct Tea Shop I often had occasion to explain to people that North Americans (myself included) tend to refer to anything steeped in hot water as "tea" even though "tea" is actually a specific plant, and "infusion" is the proper term for herbal mixes.
Not just North Americans, calling any random mix of twigs and leaves tea is prevalent in the UK as well
