Earl Grey Rooibos Tea
Flavour NotesMalty, Sweet, Bergamot
For something a little different, our new Earl Grey Rooibos Tea.
This infusion is perfect for those who wish to enjoy a cup of Early Grey, but minus the caffeine.
We create this blend using the same techniques involved with our tradition Earl Grey Blends. Replacing black tea with Rooibos, we infuse the leaves with organic Bergamot oil from Calabria for a deliciously moreish citrus flavour.
Rooibos is a delicious naturally caffeine free alternative to tea. Grown in South Africa, the Rooibos plant is Aspalathus linereas, a legume from the Camellia genus. Cultivation began in South Africa in the 1930s but the plant has been used for medical purposes for several centuries.
After harvesting, the leaves laid out in the hot sun to dry and oxidize. This turns them from green to the iconic rich red which we associate with Rooibos, creating a spectacular deep orange colour when brewed.
Rooibos is high in antioxidants and is caffeine free so can be enjoyed at any time of day. It is low in tannins, meaning it lacks bitterness. Rooibos is well-rounded and full bodied.
Bergamot is a natural mood enhancer so combined with the natural benefits of Rooibos, this tea is a real winner.
