Herbal Teas or a tisane ( ptisan ) are any herbal infusion other than from the leaves of the tea bush (Camellia sinensis). The English word "tisane" originated from the Greek word πτισάνη (ptisanē), a drink made from pearl barley.

Tisanes can be made with fresh or dried flowers, leaves, seeds or roots, generally by pouring boiling water over the plant parts and letting them steep for a few minutes. Seeds and roots can also be boiled on a stove. The tisane is then strained, sweetened if so desired, and served.

The single variety teas are especially selected for their very high quality and have been prepared as tea infusions in a different manner to those listed in the Dried Herbs and Spices section of this website. They also come from a different source and, as such, reflect slightly different prices.
