Fruit Tisanes: A Not-So-New Invention
The history of so-called "real" Tea (Tea to come from the Camellia sinensis plant) dates back over 5,000 years. There are, however, older beverages. This includes the humble Fruit Tisane. Contrary to popular belief, these honorary Teas are not new. Far from it, in fact!
Nevertheless, the name "Tisane" has mysterious origins. One such theory suggests that it comes from the Greek word 'ptisanē', which refers to a drink made from the crushed grains of pearl barley. Another theory suggests that the French originally invented the term. The French word "Ti" (Tea) and "Sans" (without) combined could mean "Tea without Tea."
A noteworthy moment in the history of the Fruit Tisane occurred just before and during the American Revolution (1775-1783). In 1773, a group of British colonial subjects of North America dumped hundreds of chests of Tea in the Boston Harbour. This was in protest of high taxes on Tea imports, and later became known as the infamous Boston Tea Party.
In time, the protest against Tea escalated and ultimately gave rise to war. During this period, soon-to-be American citizens brewed local ingredients to make Tea alternatives such as Fruit Tisane teas. Indeed, many of the ingredients found in our Red Berry Fruits Pyramid Tea Bags would have had a small yet significant role to play in the founding of the United States!
