Well, let me tell you, you too can share a sip now of what is popularly known in this modern world as Flower Teas, or simply Tisanes.
Tisanes are a natural infusion of herbs, spices, or flowers in hot water when steeped for 2-3 mins. These are Caffeine Free and are often referred to as Herbal Teas. Due to the innate softness of flowers, these teas are generally much smoother than Green teas.
Tisanes differ from other teas fundamentally as teas are generally made from the leaves of the plant Camellia Sinensis. It includes all sorts of teas such as green, black, yellow, white, or say oolong tea. But Flower teas are made directly from natural flowers, dried or fresh.
