I received a sample bag from Numi for being a bit of a fan. There’s really not much to report about it other than the fact that it’s rooibos. But – as far as rooibos goes – it is a good one, even for a bagged variety. I tried to steep it for only six minutes, but I forgot I had it there. So…fifteen minutes later, it still tasted good. Nut-sweet, kinda light. Needs something more, but what can you ask of the poor li’l legume?
Red Mellow Bush Rooibos
Grown in the high desert regions of the Cederberg Mountains, the shoots of Rooibos have been hand gathered by South Africans for generations. It is prepared like a traditional tea, undergoing meticulous drying (oxidation) and cutting. Organic Red Mellow Bush has an earthy vanilla taste and pleasing orange color with hints of autumn straw. With an anti-oxidant level comparable to green tea, Rooibos has no caffeine, is rich in minerals, very low in tannin, and is relaxing to the nerves. No wonder they call it the miracle tea.
