Consuming herbal and fruit tisanes pre-dates the discovery of tea. However, its popularity has fluctuated greatly over the centuries owing to ever-changing social climates and advancements in the tea industry. The history of the United States, which only dates back to 1776, is closely associated with herbal and fruit teas. Prior to the Declaration of Independence, The British Crown infamously imposed harsh tea taxes on the then British subjects living in the Americas, specifically in the landmass that now constitutes the United States.
In 1773, colonists angry with this taxation dressed up as Native Americans and took part in what is now known as the Boston Tea Party, which saw tons upon tons of Green Tea dumped into the Boston Harbour in protest. Following this, and during the American Revolutionary War (1775–1783), soon-to-be American citizens began consuming fruit teas and herbal teas, the ingredients of which could be grown locally without importation.
Over a hundred years later, America was once again thrown into the limelight following the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, USA. On the first day of the event, over 200,000 people were in attendance during what was one of the hottest days of the year. This saw many members of the public searching for cold refreshments, as opposed to hot tea.
A now-famous Tea vendor by the name of Richard Blechynden soon found himself struggling to make sales, and as a result, began to pour his tea over ice. He then offered these drinks as free samples, and soon, dozens of attendees began flocking to his modest display. Unknowingly, Mr. Blechynden had just invented the Iced Tea, which today, is known and loved around the world, especially when using ingredients such as those found in our delicious Red Berry Fruit Tisane. The history of fruit tea is largely an American one, but you don’t have to be waving the Star Bangled Banner to enjoy this brew. So, what are you waiting for?

This then leads to further disrupted sleep, even higher levels of stress and even more disrupted blood sugars.
