For the past two years I've featured tisanes during T Stands For Tuesday. Some of you know what tisanes are, and some may never have heard of them.
Tisanes are any herbal tea concoction that is non-caffeinated. Coffee, along with black, green, yellow, white, and oolong tea all have caffeine (my one vice), but herbal teas do not. So off I went to my garden to cut my tisanes. This is orange mint.
Of course, I had to wait until my little new friend left before I cut these leaves and stems away from the parent plant.
Another tisane is my lemon mint.
Soon both were cut back ready for winter.
My chocolate mint was shaded under my blackberries, but I still got a substantial amount. Enough for many cups of tisane ( herbal tea).
My tisanes are typically lighter than most teas I brew.
The fresh mint even makes a great accompaniment/garnish.
It's a good thing I had this wonderful herbal concoction because I bought some candy corn cupcakes that were much cuter looking than they tasted.
If you want to see where I discuss how to brew tisanes in 2014, go here. For my 2015 tisanes post go here.
Now it's your turn to share your drink related post. Any post is acceptable as long as you can relate it, in some way, back to a drink. Think postcard, movie, fine art, poster art, sketches, digital, hybrid or traditional art, unique teapots, or you might share your garden, or take us with you as you go out and about. Photos do not have to be taken on Tuesday, but you must link below (direct links only, please) to ensure Bleubeard, the "T" gang, and I visit. Or drop by to say hello and consider joining us for this weekly event in the future. We'd love to have you.
