All You Need To Know About Herbal Tea

What is Herbal Tea?

Herbal tea a.k.a. Tisane technically isn’t a tea when compared to teas like black, green or oolong. It looks like tea and is brewed like tea but they do not come from the Camellia sinensis bush, the plant from which all teas are made. It is an infusion drink which means that the steeping water absorbs the different flavors of the individual blends. Herbal teas not classified as loose leaf tea either since the contents of the tea are made up of herbs and spices. Usually the base is made from mild, sweet apple pieces, ginger pieces, fennel or lemon grass.

With that being said, Herbal tea is in a class of its own. There is an unlimited selection of ingredients that can be added. Almost all vegetables, fruits, spices and herbs can be used to create a new blend. Hardly any other brewed drink offers such a large flavor variety as do herb tea blends. Spicy, flowery, sweet or sour, no flavor is missing.

Freshness and an authentic flavor are vital for a great tasting herb tea blend. Most Herbal teas are without caffeine, tannins or acidity.
