Meaning “Red bush”, Rooibos has a beautifully deep red liquor, a rich and slightly spicy taste, and yet it is naturally calorie free, naturally caffeine free and is known for its antioxidants - making for a wonderfully soothing and beneficial drink at any time.
Brewing instructions: 1-2 teaspoons of loose leaf or 1 pyramid bag. 2-8 mins as preferred, at 95-100ºC.
Good to know: The Rooibos plant is indigenous to the Cederberg Mountains in South Africa, 300km north of Cape Town and this is exactly where our Rooibos comes from!
Food pairing: Toasted tea cakes, sweet fruits and spices, nutty cheeses and chocolate... It's very versatile.
