What is an Infusion


By Morningbird

An infusion is water or oil in which plants have been steeped so that the menstruum becomes infused with plant goodness.

Most often, the liquid is hot or boiling when it is poured over the herbs. The herbs are then allowed to steep until the desired strength of flavor is achieved.

Water infusions are often called tea or tisane.
