The history of all Fruit Tisanes is especially difficult to uncover, accounting for the fact that Fruit has been in abundance across the world for thousands of years, with no real indication to the origin of its use within beverages. Meanwhile, the term ‘Tisane’ is equally mysterious, with a number of claims to its invention.
One such theory suggests the name comes from the Greek word ‘ptisanē’, which refers to a drink made from the crushed grains of pearl barley. Meanwhile, another theory suggests that the French originally invented the term, with the word ‘Ti’ (Tea) and ‘Sans’ (French for “without”) combined potentially meaning “tea without tea.”
An interesting story involving Fruit Tisanes as well as other herbal tisanes dates back to the American War for Independence, which saw the ruling British Crown impose extortionate taxes on tea being shipped out to the New World colonies.
Aside from the infamous and well-documented tale of colonists dropping tea into the Boston Harbour, many settlers across the future-United-States-of-America found themselves resorting to the use of other ingredients within their beverages. These alternative brews often known as “freedom teas” and “herbal teas” became so popular that eventually, many of the citizens saw no need in differentiating between “teas” and “tisanes”, thus resulting in future generations losing the ability to know otherwise!
