Herbal and Fruit Tea (Tisane)

The English word "tisane" originated from the Greek word πτισάνη (ptisanē), a drink made from pearl barley. Technically, the name 'herbal tea' is incorrect because they are not made with real tea (Camellia sinensis), but by infusing other plants.

Herbal teas can be made with fresh or dried flowers, leaves, seeds, roots and dehydrated fruit by pouring boiling water over the plant parts and letting them steep for a few minutes. The tisane is then strained, sweetened if so desired, and served.

 

Flower Teas

Flower teas are a unique art form of tea, hand made in China from skilled artisans. They combine young leaf green tea with various dried flowers giving each flower tea its own distinctive characteristics.

Herbal teas can be made with fresh or dried flowers, leaves, seeds, roots and dehydrated fruit by pouring boiling water over the plant parts and letting them steep for a few minutes. The tisane is then strained, sweetened if so desired, and served.

All flower teas at Distinctly Tea Inc. are packaged in 2 mL poly-propylene zip-lock bags to ensure minimal flavour transfer to the environment. To provide a sample of the tea liquor to the customer, pour off some of the tea into a sample cup and then top off the flower tea with more water. Flower teas can provide up to 4 separate infusions. Flower teas can be used as a display for several days.

 

To infuse a flower tea for the customer, place the dry tea into a wine glass and pour water (95 degrees Celsius) over the flower to show the flower opening.
