A tisane is a water based infusion of herbs, spices, flowers or leaves etc. Known more often nowadays as a herbal tea, it is any plant-derived drink other than true tea from the Camellia sinensis plant.
The antioxidants and vitamins found in tisanes are great for helping fight disease and infections, protect against oxidative stress, and lower the risk of chronic disease.
