Fruit-infused teas are prepared by boiling an assortment of fruits in water, along with spices and herbs.
Tea is one of the most popular beverages across the world. Be it the early morning dose to freshen up or the evening cuppa to recharge ourselves, we love to indulge in piping hot tea every day. The concoction, however, can be of different variations in different parts of the world depending on the region and taste preferences. While some prefer it with milk, some like it black, and then there is a whole range of herbal teas with distinct flavours that have taken over the world.
Herbal teas or ’tisanes’ are basically made by infusing herbs and spices in hot water, and boast of many health benefits. From aiding weight loss, easing digestion to boosting immunity, these teas are fast gaining popularity among tea-lovers. Fruit-infused teas have also become popular despite technically not being teas. These concoctions don’t contain tea leaves, but are instead prepared by boiling an assortment of fruits in water, along with spices and herbs. They are considered healthy since it is believed that they may contain some water soluble vitamins and nutrients that may get seeped into the water. Fruit-infused teas aren’t just healthy but are also delicious with flavours of fruits. They are refreshing and extremely easy to prepare at home.
