The phrase "#herbal #tea" usually refers to infusions of #fruit or herbs made without the tea plant, such as rosehip tea, chamomile tea, or rooibos tea. Alternative phrases for this are tisane or herbal infusion, both bearing an implied contrast with "tea" as it is construed here.
Scented #Tea (Flowering tea or blooming tea or #花茶) is generally served in containers made of glass, or other transparent material, so that the flowering effect can be seen. The bundles can usually be reused two or three times without the tea becoming bitter.
Scented Tea (花茶) consist each of a bundle of dried #tea #leaves wrapped around one or more dried #flowers. These are made by binding tea leaves and flowers together into a #bulb and are then set to dry. When #steeped, the bundle expands and unfurls in a process that emulates a #blooming #flower, while the flowers inside emerge as the #centrepiece. Typically they are sourced from the Yunnan province of #China.
Like beverages made from the #tea bush (Camellia sinensis), #tisanes can be served hot or cold. Tisanes have been used for nearly as long as written history extends. Documents have been recovered dating back to Ancient Egypt and Ancient #China that discuss the enjoyment and uses of tisanes.
#Tisane, or herbal #tea, is any non-caffeinated beverage made from the infusion or decoction of herbs, spices, or other plant material in hot water.These drinks are distinguished from caffeinated beverages like coffee, maté, kuding, and the true teas (black, green, white, yellow, oolong, etc.), as well as from decaffeinated tea, in which the caffeine has been removed. In addition to serving as a #beverage, many tisanes are also consumed for their perceived medicinal benefits.
