A tisane is a word often used to describe herbal infusions that have no true tea in them (i.e. no leaves from the plant Camellia sinensis). An herbal tea can be made from herbs, spices, or flowers and fruits. All our herbal teas are naturally caffeine-free, except for Yerba Mate.
Brewing Herbal teas
- 1 tsp. tea leaves per 8 oz water.
- Steep in just boiled water at a temperature similar to a black tea or herbal infusion, around 200 to 212 degrees, for 3-5 minutes.
- Cover your herbal infusion while it’s infusing to keep all the heat in the steeping vessel.
Taste the brewed tea after the recommended infusion time and then decide if you’d like it to go a little longer. Unlike a traditional black or green tea, herbal teas won’t get more astringent and bitter the longer it’s infused in hot water; they will just get stronger and more flavorful.
To ensure your herbal tea stays as fresh as possible as long as possible, take care to store it in a cool, dark place, away from light, oxygen, moisture and fragrant pantry companions like coffee or spices.
