What is a Tisane?

Tisane (pronounced tee-zahn) originates from the Greek word tisane. A tisane was a drink made from pearl barley. Today’s Tisanes are a blend of dried herbs, flowers, roots, nuts, fruits, and natural flavors, which are fresh or dried, that have a terrific bold refreshing taste. Add a little sweetener and they make a phenomenal iced tea. Hibiscus leaves and Rosehip are used throughout these herb and fruit blends, which give the added benefit of naturally occurring vitamin C. Hibiscus has properties that help with high blood pressure and helps eliminate toxins and helps with blood circulation. The people in China and India swear by its abilities to help promote a healthy scalp and full-bodied hair. Rosehips are for vital anti aging and well-being. Hot or cold, you will notice how good it makes you feel to drink something with such healing power. It is a tonic for energy and can also cleanse your respiratory tract. It makes you less susceptible to colds and viruses, perfect for enjoying right through winter. Although it will help you feel calmer, it also helps you rebound from stress and exhaustion. The healing power of rosehips goes on and on. Tisane has been around for thousands of years and has been used for its amazing healing properties. Made with the best ingredients that Mother Earth has offered us, Tisane’s are a delicious path to good health!

Tisanes, also known as an herbal infusion, are not made from tea leaves, but they are brewed with the same method. A Tisane is not an herbal “tea” because the drink is made from just about everything except the camellia sinensis (tea) plant. A little Tisane goes a long way! Steep in boiling water to your preferred level of strength, then either serve immediately or throw it over some ice as a cool refreshing summer time drink.
