Herbal Teas

Herbal Teas

Herbal Tea, defined as any tisane, or ptisan is an herbal infusion not made from the leaves of the tea bush. Therefore herbal tea is really a misnomer because it is the absence of tea that makes it herbal, but common usage has now made it acceptable. Herbal teas can be made from
fresh or dried flowers, leaves, seeds, roots or fruits by pouring boiling water over the plant parts and letting it steep. Because of that a number of articles in this series are really about herbal teas, the articles on: Red Teas, Yerba Mate, Fruit Blends and Wellness Blends are really articles on specific kinds of herbal teas. So check them out for more specific information.
