Rooibos!

Rooibos, or “red bush,” is native to the western coast of South Africa, and it has been harvested from the wild for millennia, only recently cultivated.  But its popularity is growing, with a great reputation as a cheap and delicious caffeine-free tea alternative.  Read more in our Rooibos feature blog post.

 

South African Org. Rooibos

If you are looking for a caffeine-free hot beverage alternative, one taste of this vibrant red herbal infusion will have you hooked. Rooibos leaves have a malty sweetness reminiscent of black tea, but also a variety of their own unique accents, with strawberry, honey, and vanilla notes, as well as subtle earthy and tobacco undertones.

We are very happy to have found this premium variety, organic from South Africa, with particularly strong vanilla notes and a surprising sweetness – it’s really lovely!  Mild and forgiving, it is impossible to over-steep rooibos, and it lends itself well to flavored blends, providing a neutral body which is easy to build upon – it is excellent with sugar, honey, milk, nut milks, fruits, herbs and spices.  Or try this fabulous Rooibos-Cider Hot Toddy Recipe 🙂

South African Rooibos Herbal Masala Chai

“Masala Chai” simply means “mixed-spice tea” – though this version contains no tea, and therefore no caffeine. Rooibos boasts rich earthy and vanilla tones which amplify ginger, cinnamon and vanilla flavors. The aromas wafting out of this cup are fantastic, spicy enough to wake you up without any need for caffeine.

Mild and forgiving, it is impossible to over-steep rooibos, and it is excellent with sugar, honey, milk, nut milks, fruits, etc.

Only recently has it been cultivated, but with a high reputation as a cheap and delicious caffeine-free tea alternative, in less than 100 years its popularity has spread to every continent. Rooibos is frequently used to substitute tea in herbal blends. The tiny leaves have a malty sweetness reminiscent of black tea, but also a variety of their own unique accents, with strawberry, honey, and vanilla notes, as well as earthy and tobacco undertones.

Rooibos Blood Orange Blend

A regal deep orange color, this herbal infusion is extravagant and classy, with richly nuanced rooibos complimented by an elaborate bouquet of fruits and flowers.

At a gentle steep, the apple jumps out crisp, and sunny citrus amplified by just a hint of tart hibiscus.  With longer steeping the liquor is fuller and darker, with hibiscus but also sweet-smelling rose petals and aromas of vanilla, cedar, and pipe tobacco in the rooibos, gradually becoming deeper into a dark, velvety smooth malty cup.

Read more about this unique caffeine free herbal blend – it’s really something special, a must try!  Fun to try it at different steeps, similar to the spectrum of light to dark roasted coffee.  Also makes fantastic iced tea.

Steeping Time – 2-10 minutes

Rooibos, orange peel, hibiscus, apple, rosehips, rose petals, safflowers, natural and artificial flavors.
