Exploring Exotic Tisanes and Traditional Remedies


Exotic tisanes, once a well-kept secret of wellness enthusiasts and tea lovers, are now gaining popularity and finding their way into the mainstream market. With their unique flavours, stunning colours, and potential health benefits, it’s no wonder people are exploring these extraordinary tea creations.

What exactly are tisanes?

Tisanes, also known as herbal teas or herbal infusions, are beverages made by infusing or decocting herbs, spices, or other plant materials in hot water. Unlike true teas, such as green tea or black tea, which come from the Camellia sinensis plant.

Tisanes offer a variety of flavours and potential health benefits. Here are some examples:
