Cranberry and Raspberry Rooibos
Rooibos is only grown in a small area in the Cederberg region in the Western Cape province of South Africa. Rooibos is a herbal tisane, as it stems from the bush Aspalathus linoaris and not from the tea bush Camellia sinensis. Rooibos has become a very popular tisane due to the sweet flavour and the high content of vitamin C, minerals and protein.
Rooibos is a perfect kiddie-tea and evening tea, as it is 100% caffeine-free
Bits of dried raspberry and cranberry has been added to this rooibos
Lovely fresh fruit flavour.
Rooibos is brewed in a preheated pot
The water must not boil for very long, as that boils the oxygen out of the water.
Use 1 tsp tea per cup
95°C water is poured over the leaves.
Steeping time: 3-4 minutes
As the leaves give the best result if they are allowed to float freely, it is a good idea to use a spacious sieve in the preheated pot, or pour the finished tea into a second preheated pot.
If you only brew one cup/glass at the time, you can use a cup-strainer or ‘do-it-yourself’ teabags where the leaves can float freely and give the fine aroma. By usage of cup-strainer or ‘do-it-youself’ teabags you can also steep the leaves a second time.
Keep in a dry, cool place.
