A tisane is an infusion that does not include tea leaves, which allows each to be entirely caffeine-free. Several, including rooibos and peppermint, are traditionally used as tea substitutes, but many are simply appreciated for their own unique flavors and are popularly referred to as “herbal teas.”
Our Tisanes, as well as the herbs & spices for our Tea blends, are all tea cut by us on our custom-built mill, providing the freshest, richest flavors possible. Like our spices, we only use the highest quality ingredients. Because of this, we provide our tea loose-leaf rather than in tea bags, allowing each cup to steep slightly differently rather than compromising on quality.
