While many fruit tisanes have been enjoyed as a ‘tea’ for centuries, this term does not technically refer to blends that do not include the Camellia Sinensis plant. Despite this, fruit tisanes tea has been nurtured by the tea industry for hundreds of years, and are now some of the most popular beverages on the planet. Its mysterious origins have been credited to a number of different stories.
Although it is largely believed that the term ‘tisane’ comes from the Greek word ‘ptisanē’, which refers to a drink made from the crushed grains of pearl barley. Other theories have suggested that the French originally invented the word, with the term ‘Ti’ (Tea) and ‘Sans’ (French for “without”) combined potentially meaning “tea without tea”.
However, over the course of history and even today ‘Tisanes’ are still often known as ‘Teas’. In fact, leading up to the American Revolutionary War, as the British Crown continued to impose taxation on tea imported to the colonies, the citizens of the soon-to-be United States of America found themselves inventing substitutes with locally sourced ingredients to make their beverages. These were known as “freedom teas” or “herbal teas”, and it is largely considered that during this period, the idea of ‘tea’ and ‘tisane’ became so conflated that each subsequent generation lost the ability to tell the difference!
Whether you are looking for a soothing cup of tea or an invigorating fruit tisane, The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company has hundreds of choices, with our very own Peach Tisanes quickly becoming one of the favourites!
