Herbal Infusions – A caffeine free option

What are Herbal Infusions?

Infusion is the process of steeping (soaking) herbs in water until the water absorbs the oils and flavors, then drinking the liquid for the taste or for the medicinal value.
There is a marked difference in the brewing process of teas and herbal infusions.True infusions typically use roots, shoots, leaves, and flowers of the plant, while teas typically use only the leaves in the steeping process. Green tea, for example, needs water that has cooled down from the boil and a steeping time between half a minute and two minutes. If the water is too hot, or the steeping time too long, your tea will become bitter.
For natural health enthusiasts,herbal infusions offer a more natural way to ingest herbs, when compared to swallowing pills and tablets. For others, herbal infusions are simply a way to enjoy the taste of various herbs. Whatever the goal, you will definitley enjoy the entire experience, from preparing your drink to enjoying its aromatic flavours, to finally feeling the health benefits of the herbs and spices. 

Caffeine free

Another big difference between tea and tisane 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.

Why say no to caffeine?

Caffeine is present naturally in most teas, chocolate products, and coffee. Those who have managed to say no to caffeine completely have been found to report better sleep, decreased anxiety, better mood, fewer headaches, healthier teeth and weight loss without any compromise to the taste of your favorite beverage.

 The Swinging Leaf Herbal Infusions are all naturally free of any caffeine. The decaffeinated varieties of black tea or green teas that are available in the market still contain some trace amounts of caffeine. This is why switching to Tisanes makes much more sense if you are looking forward to flushing out all caffeine from your system, especially if you are sensitive to caffeine.
