Introducing Vanilla Rooibos.
This new infusion accentuates the natural flavours of traditional Rooibos tea, creating a sweet and soft cup that is easier on the palate. A treat for the tastebuds without the guilt!
Rooibos is a delicious naturally caffeine free alternative to tea.
Rooibos, or Red Bush tea is 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.
Our Vanilla Rooibos tea is perfect for those who prefer a milder, sweeter flavour and is the ideal ‘just before bedtime’ drink.
