Herbal teas – also called tisanes – are caffeine-free teas made using blends of herbs, spices, fruits, and other botanicals. Many herbal teas are carefully created using a variety of ingredients that offer specific health benefits. Since almost any edible plant can be added to tea, herbal blends come in a wide array of flavors ranging from sweet to savory.

History of Herbal Tea

It is believed that herbal teas, or tisanes, were first popularized in China during the 28th century B.C. One Chinese legend attributes the invention of tisanes to a man named Shennong, which translates to “divine farmer”. Shennong was said to discover herbal infusions after some leaves from a nearby tree blew into his hot water. 

Regardless of the exact origin, herbal teas have been an important part of Chinese culture for thousands of years. Over time, their medicinal properties and vibrant flavors gained them immense popularity throughout the world. Today, herbal teas are some of the most popular caffeine-free beverages available.

Health Properties of Herbal Tea

  • Unique blends offer different health benefits
    Herbal blends make for a great wellness tea. But, each tea is one-of-a-kind. The specific herbs and botanicals used determine the health benefits; for example, peppermint tea can provide relief for heartburn and nausea, while chamomile can soothe anxiety and help treat insomnia. Since each herbal tea is unique, it is best to learn about the health benefits specific to each blend.
  • Low caffeine or caffeine-free
    Herbal teas are naturally low in caffeine, or entirely caffeine-free. That makes them a great choice for people who experience heightened anxiety, poor sleep, or other negative effects when consuming caffeine.

How to Prepare Herbal Tea

How you prepare your cup of tea can impact how well the flavors come through. To ensure you are enjoying all of the delicate and complex flavors that herbal tea has to offer, here is a guide on how to prepare your tea:

  • Use a heaping teaspoon (~3g) of tea per 6oz cup. Flavor and taste can differ significantly depending on the specific tea, so you can add a little more or less depending on your personal preferences. 
  • Only use filtered water. Poor quality water can obscure the subtle and lighter flavors of tea, so it is important to use filtered water for the best tasting cup.
  • Follow specific steeping instructions. Each herbal tea blend has specific water temperature and steeping time that will result in the best cup possible. Following the blend’s instructions can help bring out all of the tea’s deep and complex flavors.
  • Never over or under-steep your tea. Steeping your tea past the recommended time can make it bitter, and under-steeping can result in a pale cup or inferior flavor. If you want a stronger cup of tea, adjust the amount of tea you are using rather than changing how long you are steeping it.
