  • A stimulant-free tea with surprising, robust “Red-Bush” texture that Rooibos lovers will delight in – this Organic Rooibos loose tea is a textbook success, proving that if it isn't broken: you don't need to fix it.
    First, it's that indefinable something that makes Rooibos such a coveted leaf. South African  with plainsland pleasure coming through with every sip – Rooibos brushes over the clarity of traditional blacks and the herbish aftertaste of greens with its own unique flavor collection. Somewhat melty, more of a “tongue taste” than a “throat taste”, Rooibos has to be tasted to be understood. Furthermore, Rooibos' laudable effects on health include rich mineral content, proven anti-oxidants, skin-promoting content, and stomach-settling properties.
    Now, that can be done with delicious directness as this organic caffeine-free tisanal gets right to the point. Fructose-noted, full-flavored, and nearly impossible to over-steep, this is a hard-working tea that reminds us that some luxuries are hard won and come from the knowledge that a long day's work deserves a sturdy, refreshing tea.
    Rooibos Organic focuses on the natural strengths of this “red tea”, allowing for the singularity of its focused, dense flavor to shine. Rooibos, for all of its compactness and unfussy nature, is nonetheless a milder tea, never overwhelming as it makes each sip encourage the next.

  • Steeping Instructions

    1 teaspoon per 8 oz of water. Fluffy leaves like some Oolongs, use 2 teaspoons. For stronger tea use more tea.   There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter.   If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times. Below are general steeping instructions.  For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
    To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle.  When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.
