Teas can be made with fresh or dried flowers, leaves, seeds or roots, generally by pouring boiling water over the plant parts and letting them steep for a few minutes. Seeds and roots can also be boiled on a stove. The tisane (tea infusion) is then strained, sweetened if so desired, and served.
In ancient China, tea was made in bricks, ground, and served in powdered form. Tea houses are an important part of Chinese culture. Tea culture was spread to the New World by the British Empire.
