    You Posh Tea Drinkers.....

    Post  Tikva on Thu Apr 23, 2009 11:15 pm

    Well, don't suppose you have to be posh, but just wondering about Herbal Teas etc. Have started trying a few lately, and found a really delicious one, but apparently it's an "infusion" (Twinings Echinacea & Raspberry). Ummmm, is there any difference? Does an infusion not have the benefits of a proper Herbal Tea? Oh, and any recommendations for Herbal Teas/Infusions that are quite sweet?

    Thanks!

    Well "herbal tea" is a misnomer, because herbal infusions usually aren't made using the tea plant (dunno scientific name, camellia somethingorother), so that's why i guess it's called an infusion. But so yeah herbal tea = infusion. Just is different named to not imply it has "tea plant" in it. Hope that makes sense coz I'm always crap at explaining shit.

    And i never really find the fruity infusions sweet enough, so i tend to add honey coz i like it sweet. Unless it's a strictly herbal one, then i wont bother.

    Taste is very subjective, but, despite disliking their name, I do like some of the 'zinger' flavours of Celestial Seasonings. You'll see there they also have a sampler box, as do some other brands.

    Edited to change link colour.

    There is only one plant that produces tea:Camillia sinesis

    All others are herbal infusions.

    I am tea fanatic, and drink far too much of it. Very Happy

    But I like some of the herbal jobs too.

    Pomegranate tea is lovely with a slightly sweet tangy taste... and you can get a variety of different ones.

    I love drinking green teas, licorice teas and peppermint teas.

    Although I have to have my usual "normal" tea too and the odd coffee or mochaccino or milo.

    Thanks for all the helpful info ~ makes sense that it is called an 'Infusion' instead of a Tea now, and I also know which type I want to be looking for.

    Another question ~ how do you make Iced Tea? The flavour I'm drinking says that it's delicious either hot or cold (which it is), so I thought it might make a good Iced Tea.......

    i only drink ice tea with lemon. Therefore i am unable to assist you with your question.

    Yet, if you enjoy it, just drink it. You only live once.
