From Harney & Sons

A brew of African Autumn pours a brilliant royal orange liquid. The much-admired autumn hue comes from the rooibos, an herbal plant grown in South Africa also known as red bush. Upon fermentation, the leaves dry under the hot African sun changing color from vivid green to deep red. The mellow rooibos tempered by cranberry and orange peel has a wildly sweet and smooth aroma and a cool, minty flavor, at once refreshing and soothing. African Autumn is a great herbal and caffeine-free substitute to tea.

Now what did you say this tea was called again? African Tart? And by tart I don’t mean dessert, I mean TAAAART.

So once again – Another one killed the Roobios!

A delicious tea, with contrasting qualities that provides for a delightful drinking experience. The warm, gentle flavor of the rooibos comes first and then an incredibly pleasant, bright citrus aftertaste. Both were very gentle flavors. I’ve never been a rooibos fan, but this is a lovely tea I could easily introduce into my menu. I think it would go well with a sweet desert or some fruit.

This is a great tea! Smells great brewing! Just wish you could taste the cranberry more and the orange less!
