What is a "herbal tisane"?
Herbal tisanes are tea-like drinks, commonly called
"herbal teas", made by steeping or soaking herbs, spices
or other plant material in water. They do not contain
leaves from the tea bush and, as a result, do not
contain caffeine. The plants and herbs used in tisanes
may be selected for flavor or medicinal properties or a
combination of both.

THE ORIGIN OF ICED TEA
When we think of tea, we think of China. Iced tea,
however, has its origin in America. In the St.Louis
World's Fair in 1904, tea merchants from around
the world were handing out freshly brewed samples
of tea. The weather was hot, however, and the
crowds did not want the hot tea. But, one smart
English merchant poured the hot tea over ice and
the crowds were wild about it! Today, almost half
of the teas people drink each year are iced teas.
The Egyptian Pharoahs in times of old drank tea
brewed from the flower of the hibiscus plant. A
much needed refreshment in the hot climate of
Ancient Egypt!! The tradition continues.
this year should see the arrival of some
new teas. We remain in pursuit of "the
newest expressions of healthy traditions"!
Now taking international orders!
