But what is a fruit tisane? And where do they come from? There are many claimed origins to this versatile beverage. Some credit the term “tisane” coming from the Greek word “ptisanē”, which thousands of years ago referred to a beverage made from the crushed grains of pearl barley. Others acknowledge the French as coining the term owing to the words “Ti” (Tea) and “Sans” (French for “without”) or perhaps “Ti” (Tea) and “Sine” (Latin for “without”) combined meaning “tea without tea”. And both combinations of words sound like the word tisane.
A “tea without tea” can refer to any beverage that does not include leaves from the Camellia sinensis plant (tea plant). That means a fruit or a group of fruits brewed up for a hot drink is classified as a fruit tisane, while a herb or a group of herbs (i.e. Peppermint Tea or Camomile Tea) used for the same purpose is classified as a herbal tisane. Yet the term “tisane” is seldom used. Most still recognise herbal and fruit infusions as Herbal Teas and Fruit Teas respectively. But the Industry is changing and becoming more accommodating to Herbal and Fruit Tisanes as the tastes of “tea” drinkers develop. The world is becoming increasingly more open to blends such as Cherry Compote Fruit Tisane, among others; does that include you?

This leads to increased hunger and comfort eating. Eventually, this can lead to even higher levels of stress and even more disrupted blood sugars. Not only might this cause unhealthy levels of body fat, but also an increased risk of Type II Diabetes!
