Contrary to popular belief, not all herbal beverages can be categorized as tea. Herbal beverages are often wrongly referred to as “herbal tea”, but they are not made from the Camellia sinensis plant they are not tea in the strict sense. Instead, tisanes use all parts of various other plants; bark, stems, roots, flowers, seeds, fruit, and leaves to make an infusion. Herbal teas do not contain caffeine.
Consumed for their therapeutic properties, as well as their relaxing and rejuvenating aromas, herbal teas are infusions of aromatic herbs and plants. Served either hot or cold, they are a delicious alternative to caffeinated beverages.
