Description

Prized for its attractive red infusion color, rooibos has a robust body and nectar-like flavor. Traditionally harvested in ancient times by the Khoisan nomadic ethnicities of South Africa, rooibos became popularized in the tea industry through Dutch efforts to find an indigenous African analog to black tea. Today, rooibos is grown exclusively in the Cederberg Mountain region of the Western Cape. Rooibos is rich in minerals like iron and is one of the best herbal teas for expecting mothers. This herb is simply delicious as an iced tea and is traditionally served with a lemon. Extra strong infusions of rooibos can replace espresso to create red lattés and herbal tea cappuccinos.


Origin

Cederberg Mountains, South Africa

Tasting Notes

Naturally sweet and refreshing pure African rooibos with a deep red, nectar-like infusion

Ingredients

Organic rooibos.

Preparation

Leaf Amount
1 tbsp
Water Amount
8 ounces
Water Temperature
195°F
Steep Time
5-7 minutes

Traditional Preparation

Water Temperature: 195°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 5-7 minutes

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.
