The smooth palate of African rooibos
accentuates the fresh minty flavor, candy
cane-like sweetness and finer aromatic points
of American peppermint.
Tasting Notes: Sweet, soothing rooibos, complemented by refreshing, aromatic peppermint
Ingredients: Organic and Fair Trade Certified™ rooibos, organic peppermint, essential bergamot oil.
Additional Info: Rooibos (Aspalathus linearis),
meaning "Red Bush" in the
Afrikaans language, is indigenous
to South Africa's Western Cape
where it was originally consumed
by the Khoisan nomadic ethnic
groups. Today, rooibos is cultivated
near the Cederberg Mountain area
within the wider Cape Floristic
Region, a biodiversity hotspot
home to a natural shrubland, or
Rishi Tea Blend
Water Temperature: 195°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 5-7 minutes
For iced tea, make a double-strength infusion, dilute with cold water and pour over ice.
We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

Disclaimer: Mint tea is probably my favorite kind of tea (and definitely my favorite herbal) so I might appreciate this mix more than others. That being said: OH MY WORD THIS TEA IS AMAZING. The purity of the mint and rooibos flavors BOTH really come through. You can absolutely taste the quality. I grabbed this off the supermarket shelf on a whim because I'd tried a lot of other brands of mint teas, but not this one yet. The first pot I made knocked my socks off -- I was not expecting it at all. It's aromatic without being cloying, and though the flavors have a crisp and sharp quality to them, they're not overpowering. 10/10 would recommend every time.
