|Health Benefits of Teas and Tisanes (Herbal Teas) - Infographic from Express Vending|
Tisane (from the French word "herbal infusion") is an herbal tea consumed for its medicinal properties and health benefits.
Tisanes are commonly made from a decoction of dried herbs, flowers, fruits and spices and are distinguished from "true teas" (black, green, white, etc.) because they do not contain any actual tea leaves.
Generally, both true teas and herbal teas are considered to confer a variety of health benefits.
Specific herbal teas, or tisanes, are often associated with specific illnesses, health issues and medical conditions.
Over the centuries, specific herbal preparations and blends have been developed to address inflammation, high blood pressure, insomnia, infections, digestive disorders, water retention and bloating, chronic fatigue, memory ... the list goes on.
Some tisanes are also used for detoxification and cleansing and as an aid in weight loss.
This infographic entitled "Health Benefits of Teas and Tisanes" from Express Vending illustrates various true teas and tisanes and the corresponding symptom, illness or medical condition for each.
For example, Ginger Tea is thought to be effective for nausea, morning sickness, dizziness and menstrual pain.
