Although not as well known as the more common green teas and black teas, herbal infusions carry a history and heritage almost as old as mankind itself. Also known as a tisane, an herbal infusion is an infusion made from one or more parts of a plant, and some fungi as well. Unlike other teas, which are made solely from the camellia sinensis leaves, herbal infusions can be brewed not only from leaves, but seeds, roots, flowers, fruit, even bark. Created first by herbalists, many of these infusions have existed for centuries or longer.
Each unique in their creation, every herbal infusion tells a story – a story of their creation, and of the people and culture that birthed it. A sip of these herbal brews allows you a glimpse into their stories. Indulge in the warm spices of India through a cup of turmeric ginger tea or, discover why the Chinese called chaga the “king of herbs”. Whichever tea you choose, a new journey awaits you, and every sip makes its rich history a little more your own.
