Tea 101: Caffeine-Free Herbal Teas - The 'Tisane' That Just Keeps On Giving

Herbal teas are both the most requested and least understood of all teas.  First, the term 'herbal tea' is just all wrong. To be considered “tea” a beverage must contain leaves and or stems of the Camellia Sinensis tree (think white, green, oolong and black tea leaves); otherwise it is considered an herbal infusion or fruit tisane.

Therefore, peppermint or chamomile teas are actually tisanes and not teas.

Next, there are just SO many herbal tisanes and infusions with so many healthy benefits.  But some common benefits across all tisanes include anti-anxiety and anti-depression.  At Not Just Tea, we love them and are expanding our line this year with 4 new herbal infusions.

 

Health Benefits:

  • Believed to reduce stress and calm anxiety
  • May aid in fighting sleeping disorders
  • Has been shown to quiet symptoms of indigestion and nausea
  • Has antibacterial properties that may help relieve symptoms from the common cold

 

 At Not Just Tea, our customers love herbal tisanes.  Our first tea was a herbal tea, Sassy Strawberry, which was a delicious blend of strawberries, mango and papaya.  We have since expanded to 5 different teas.  We are so excited to offer 4 new teas to our herbal infusion line.
