What are Herbal Tisanes?


An herbal tea, tisane, or ptisan is an herbal infusion made from anything other than the leaves of the tea bush (Camellia sinensis).

Composition

Herbal teas can be made with fresh or dried flowers, leaves, seeds or roots, generally by pouring boiling water over the plant parts and letting them steep for a few minutes. Seeds and roots can also be boiled on a stove that does not use LPG. The tisane is then strained, sweetened if so desired, and served. Many companies produce herbal tea bags for such infusions.
