PJ's Signature Teas | Tea vs Tisane

PJs Signature Teas

Technically, tea refers to the leaves of just one plant. All "true" tea comes from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant, an evergreen shrub native to Asia.

TISANE (pronounced ti-zahn)
There is a separate category for herbal blends and fruit infusions, which are more properly characterized as tisanes. A tisane refers to a caffeine-free blend consisting of herbs, botanicals and/or fruits prepared like a tea, but technically not a tea. 

Another big difference between teas and tisanes is caffeine. All teas have caffeine. The amount varies from a low of 35 milligrams per eight-ounce cup for green tea to a high of 90 milligrams for black. Herbal infusions, on the other hand, are caffeine-free, making them ideal for post-supper sipping.
