Herbal teas—less commonly[1] called tisanes (UK and US /tɪˈzæn/, US also /tɪˈzɑːn/)[2]—are beverages made from the infusion or decoction of herbs, spices, or other plant material in hot water.

The term "herbal tea" is often used to show the difference between true teas (e.g., black, green, white, yellow, oolong) which are made by Camellia sinensis.
