Iced, herbal teas really hit the spot no matter what the weather. They’re healthy, natural and easy to make.
A tisane is a drink made from an infusion (steeping) or decoction (boiling) of herbs. The recipes in this post are all infusions. Tisanes are commonly known as herbal teas, herbal infusions or infusions. Technically they are not a true tea.
Andrea shares recipes for three homemade, herbal teas. These are really creative recipes. I have enjoyed a variation of the Lemon Vanilla Tisane. It’s delicious either hot or iced.
Andrea’s recipes include:
- Lemon Vanilla Tisane
- Hot Pink Hibiscus Tea (Jamaica Tea)
- Sweet Licorice Mint Tisane
Note: I use stainless steel, ceramic or glass pots when I make tisanes ~ decoctions in particular. I never use Aluminum pots. Aluminum is a reactive metal, so it can react with the herb and, depending on the plant type, it may produce a very toxic beverage
