Popular Fruit & Herb "teas" are actually part of the family of teas known as tisanes. Tisanes are not technically tea for tea is a beverage derived from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis bush. Tisane is a category of tea types that include anything steeped as tea leaves would be, but do not contain any actual leaves of Camellia sinensis.
Tisanes are naturally caffeine free and contain dried whole fruits, spices, herbs and often dried flowers and leaves. Their tastes range from tart and fruity to warm and spiced to even smoky and earthy. All will bring a smile to your soul.
For those wishing to avoid caffeine, we recommend all our flavors in this wonderful category. Fruit & Herb Tisanes are naturally caffeine-free and have no need of being decaffeinated through questionable chemical processes.
While tisanes may not have the exact benefits of the leaf of the Camellia sinensis, many Fruit & Herb Tisanes contain spices and herbs in which health boosting compounds are found.
“Great love affairs start with champagne and end with tisane.”
— Honoré de Balzac
