From Rishi Tea

Rooibos (Aspalathus linearis), meaning “Red Bush” in the Afrikaans language, is indigenous to South Africa’s Western Cape where it was originally consumed by the Khoisan nomadic ethnic groups. Today, rooibos is cultivated near the Cederberg Mountain area within the wider Cape Floristic Region, a biodiversity hotspot home to a natural shrubland, or “fynbos,” ecosystem.

Naturally caffeine-free, Rooibos creates a delicious infusion with the richness of honey and a smooth, sweet flavor. It is often brewed strong and served with a slice of lemon, which draws out its sweet fruity notes of ripe berries.

Bold and rich flavor that goes down smooth. Best when you let it steep for a longer amount of time and with water that is just under a boil

This tea is delicious and great for any health conscious individual. Not only do I like the fact that Rishi’s rooibos tea is organic, but red tea is caffeine-free and usually the price is pretty low! It is naturally sweet and has an earthy, nutty flavor.

I like to drink this tea by itself with a little bit of honey or mixed in with others. It can add a little extra rooibos flavor to anything you mix it with. The downside though is that rooibos tea does not hold well when steeped multiple times.

However, because it won’t get bitter if steeped for a long time like green, black, or oolong tea, you can let the 2nd or 3rd steep infuse for a lot longer than you normally would.

Fruity, sweet, smooth and cheerful red color when brewed. I was so excited to find this tea, because my friend visited South Africa and came back raving about drinking rooibos tea with milk while she was over there. My only experiences with rooibos up to this point had been with heavily flavored fruity concoctions, which are usually not my cup of tea (groaaan, haha). But I resolved to give it a try and WOW, wow. This tea is great straight, with honey, or with milk. It plays well with other tisanes in blends that I improvise with lavender, mint, and chamomile. I like a pretty strong, long steep of it, and it does do well for a second (slightly longer) infusion. Plus, I feel so virtuous when I drink it, having read about all of its vitamins and health benefits. Bonus! I would absolutely recommend this to anyone, even if (maybe especially if?) you’ve never liked all the various fruity and very sweet rooibos blends out there.
