Rooibos is a caffeine free herbal brew that has a smooth taste because it does not have tannin like tea made with the Camellia Sinensis plant. Its great iced or hot and with or without milk.

Extra Info:

The story of Rooibos starts around the turn of the century in South Africa's beautiful Cedarberg region. It was the locals of the area who first discovered that the fine needle like leaves of the wild "Aspalathus Linearis" plant made a tasty aromatic tea.

It was they who first harvested the plants, chopped them with axes and bruised them with hammers leaving them to ferment before drying in the sun. Rooibos is a herb that contains no caffeine. Those that consume Rooibos have claimed that it has a soothing effect on headaches, disturbed sleeping patterns and digestive problems.

Rooibos seeds are planted in February and March and tended for 18 months after which they are harvested. Cut Rooibos is bound and milled to a uniform length then bruised between rollers to trigger the fermentation process, which results in the characteristic flavor and sweet aroma.

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 212°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 7-May minutes.

Ingredients:

Organic Rooibos,

Origin:

Cedarber, South Africa

This red tea is delicious hot or cold. Since it is not a true tea (black or green) it has no caffeine. It's not astringent or bitter like some teas are, but rather satisfying like sassafras tea (if it could be compared to anything American). It takes easily to sweetening and it feels rather filling and centering.
