This delicious chai is made from Aspalathus linoaris, a South African plant that gives it a rich, red color. The red Rooibos is naturally caffeine-free and filled with vitamin C, minerals, and proteins. And combined with cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, and lemongrass, it makes a wonderful herbal tea.
How to Prepare
Use 1.5 teaspoons of tea per 8oz of water. Heat water to 208 degrees and steep for 5-6 minutes. 2oz of tea equals 25-30 teaspoons.
Red Rooibos with ginger, cinnamon, vanilla, lemongrass and cardamom.

This was my first taste of rooibos tea after I asked the barista what Teavana had in the way of decaf flavors. Done the traditional way (milk and sugar), it comes to mind of what (I have built up in my mind) I think coffee should taste like, considering the way it smells. I love the spices, but it gets a few points off for being a very mild blend (vanilla), instead of a spicy one (pepper). Nostalgic favorite.
Great calm-down tea. Or sick tea, becaue anything makes a nice sick tea..I think.. (Hot water+ variant herbs) + throat = instant healing? Looks good to me.
But back to the tea. Like most chais, I think this would be great with sweetener and maybe some milk (or vanilla soy milk for a real treat of treats). However, it’s great plain, which is how I am drinking it.
