ORGANIC RED ROOIBOS TEA, choice grade
Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Origin: South Africa
Production: Similar to the production of black or green teas, the green rooibos leaves are harvested, cut and bruised (often with mechanical rollers), and then exposed to heat for several days to allow oxidation (fermentation). However, unlike tea prepared from Camellia sinensis, Rooibos tea does not turn bitter with long-term simmering as it has less than half the amount of tannins and it contains no caffeine.
Qualities: Rooibos (pronounced roy-boss) or "red bush", grows exclusively in the Western Cape Province of South Africa. It is named after the distinctive reddish-brown color it takes on once the plant has been oxidized. Rooibos tea is believed to be high in anti-oxidants, contains nine trace minerals including iron, potassium, magnesium, zinc, calcium and sodium, as well as many yet unknown micronutrients.
Common Use: This enchanting tea brews up to a deep red cup in 3-4 minutes with a flavor some describe as fruity, sweet, rounded, mild and smooth with a refreshingly herbal texture.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in a sealed container.
Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.

I've been drinking rooibos tea for more than 15 years now. I usually purchase from my local grocery store in little tea bags, but it does get expensive. I'm glad I found this product which gives me a great amount of tea for a reasonable price. To prepare rooibos, I heat water and then add the loose leaves to it. I allow it to come to a boil for a few mins. Then I strain the leaves and add a little milk and sugar.
