Rooibos is a red bush herbal tea from South Africa. It is caffeine free and said to have many health benefits. It is calorie free and great to drink hot or iced.
This pure Rooibos tea has a bright red brew, even on the second infusion. It has a naturally sweet and earthy flavour with nutty and vanilla overtones. The taste is smoother than green or black teas, because it lacks the astringent tannins that are typical of those teas. Red teas are full of minerals, such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, zinc, copper, sodium, iron, and manganese, as well as vitamin C and antioxidants. Antioxidants have been shown to help the body fight free radical damage.
Iced Tea Brewing Method
Make as for hot, but add extra tea - a rule of thumb is to double the amount of tea used per cup. When the tea has cooled a little pour over ice. It is important to make it a little stronger as the ice will water it down.
Cold Brew Method
Place the tea in a jug and add cold water. Leave to infuse for a few hours (or overnight in the fridge) strain and enjoy. Cold brewing will give a smoother taste.
