The locals in South Africa have known for well over a hundred years - the fine needle like leaves of this plant make a tasty, aromatic tea with exceeding health benefits. This naturally caffeine-free luxury loose leaf 'tea' has four times the antioxidants of Green tea and is packed with vitamins and minerals such as Potassium, Calcium, Zinc, Iron and Vitamin C.
The rules with brewing Rooibos are....there are no rules. Rooibos does not become bitter from over-steeping! Basically, the more you use and the longer you let it steep - the deeper the flavour.
Those who consume Rooibos have claimed it has a soothing effect on headaches, disturbed sleep patterns and aides digestion. With its full body and robust flavour, Rooibos blends beautifully with our natural flavours and takes milk well if you're a die-hard milk-in-tea fan. Alex is a Rooibos fanatic (having grown up in South Africa!). These blends have been laboriously chosen after tasting hundreds of blends - it's a tough job but someone has to do it! Enjoy!
