Description: Also called Red Tea, Rooibos is an herb indigenous to the Cederberg region of South Africa. It is naturally caffeine-free and has a deep, nectar like taste, rich in antioxidants and known for its calming affects.
Ingredients: Organic South African Rooibos.
Health Benefits: The tea is made by cutting and bruising the leaves and stems of the plant, fermenting them in heaps and leaving them to dry in the sun – a process which turns the leaves their characteristic red-brown colour. It is caffeine-free, high in anti-oxidants and low in tannin levels.
Tasting Notes: Rooibos tea is smooth and gentle on the palate with a natural sweetness and slightly nutty taste. It is full-bodied and rich with longer brewing times; and often enjoyed with a drop of honey or a slice of lemon.
