What is Rooibos Tea?

There's no doubt that loose rooibos tea packs a punch in terms of flavour and health benefits. When it's organic, like this full-bodied blend, it's even more of a powerhouse. With every cup, you'll feel you're actually being kind to your body for once! You'll become like one of those influencers who spout about nourishment and wellbeing, because hey, this natural tea stuff feels healthy!

Since rooibos tastes amazing drunk neat or mixed with something naughty, we won't judge if you fall off the wellbeing wagon. You still deserve to enjoy the captivating aroma and unique flavour of our redbush tea. 

 

  • Rooibos (red bush) tea is not technically a tea, because it doesn't come from the tea plant, Camellia Sinensis. It is a tisane originating from South African plant, Aspalathus Linearis, with needle-like leaves

  • Loose-leaf Rooibos tea tastes similar to tea but naturally sweeter.

  • Consume as an all-day drink; as a pick-me-up in the morning; as an excellent thirst-quencher during the day. At night it helps you to relax and sleep well.

  • Serve hot or cold.

 

HOW TO MAKE Rooibos Tea:

  1. Use 1 teaspoon of tea per cup (or tea bags)

  2. Add freshly boiled water

  3. Infuse for 3-5 minutes

  4. Remove the tea leaves

  5. Drink any time of day or night

  6. Around 6 cups of rooibos tea daily is considered healthy
