Soft Drinks - Infusions
Drinks that mix -usually hot- water with herbs, plants, fruits and seeds are known as Infusions. In the past, and even nowadays, were used as a method to battle certain pains and illnesses, due to the healing properties of certain plants.
The most common infusions are coffe, tea, camomile, pennyroyal, mate and lime tea (blossom), though there is a never-ending list of types, made from different plants and with particular variations in each country and region.
Infusions may be served both cold and hot, thus perfectly suiting any of the seasons of the year. Coffe, tea and camomile, for instance, may be served hot in winter and with ice during summer.
