From Téga

Tega Loose Green Rooibos is an organic certified tea, sustainably harvested in the Cederberg Mountains of South Africa. Green Rooibos is a twist on the traditional fermented variety of the Rooibos plant. Green Rooibos is steamed immediately after harvest, to stop the fermentation process from beginning. The Rooibos leaves remain their natural green colour and have a lighter taste than fermented Rooibos. Pure Green Rooibos has a taste reminiscient of traditional green tea, but also similar to that of Red Rooibos. We recommend this tea to anyone who loves to drink Green Tea and is looking for a smoother, caffeine-free alternative.

When I smell the bag of loose tea it smells grassy and also reminds me a bit of green (camellia sinensis) tea. Like the name suggests the dry rooibos is quite green but when it is steeped the tea brews up to be a rose/yellow color. Looking at the used leaves after steeping the tea they still look green.

I used only 1 tsp of the dry rooibos for 12 oz cup of tea and I steeped it for 11 minutes in near boiling water and it turned out to be a good (medium) strength cup of tea.

It tastes a lot like green camellia sinensis tea, in fact the taste is much closer to green camellia sinensis tea than to red rooibos tea.

This is the first green rooibos I have tasted and I really liked it so I plan to make this regularly.
