From Tick Tock

Tick Tock‘s deep colour and full taste make a delicious cup of tea, and it’s well known for its health properties too. Gentle, soothing, naturally caffeine free and low in tannin, Tick Tock Rooibos Tea can be enjoyed at any time, even at bed time.

Tick Tock Rooibos tea is still harvested by hand and cured in the traditional way, as it was when Grandfather Benjamin Ginsberg founded Rooibos over 100 years ago. The process takes place in the crisp air of the Cedarberg Mountains of South Africa’s Cape. It requires great skill to know when the cure is at its peak; one sign is that it begins to give off a delicious sweet aroma that attracts wild bees.

wonderful stuff…….good with a dash of soya

Robert Heaven

is Rooibos actually classed as a “tea”?

Rachael Kelly

Definitely…..Ringtons stock it so it must be

Robert Heaven

Ringtons also sell egg cups…

Rachael Kelly

Well if Ringtons sell egg cups then they must be fabulous ones, and the same for their Rooibos tea. They would not sell anything that is not top of the range.

Robert Heaven

But is Rooibos really a tea? Black tea and I think green teas also, are of the Camellia sinensis family. Rooibos is a broom like member or the Legume family..

Rachael Kelly

Tsk! Is the Pope a Catholic? I think you will find that any beverage
made from any part of a plant may be referred to as a ‘tea’, see definitions 1) and 3) below from the OED. I trust this allays your fears and answers your question.
Oxford English Dictionary:
Tea • noun 1) a hot drink made by infusing the dried, crushed leaves of the tea plant in boiling water. 2) the dried leaves of an evergreen shrub or small tree native to south and east Asia, used to make tea. 3) a drink made from the leaves, fruits, or flowers of other plants. 4) chiefly Brit. a light afternoon meal consisting of sandwiches, cakes, etc., with tea to drink. 5) Brit. a cooked evening meal.

Made a huge pot of this last night as I am camping with friends in the freezing cold. It was nice and warming and we were still drinking it when it got quite kate, so I think we were all glad it has no caffeine.

This has been in my cupboard for quite a long time now, which might explain the thin flavour. However it still tastes nice enough, and the best thing about it is it often tastes better the stronger you steep it; you can walk away and forget you’ve started a brew, come back, finish the process and end up with a great cup of tea! An uncontroversial one, great to sip while reading or studying in the evening.

Bought this earlier today. Has a weird aftertaste I don’t remember from other rooibos teas I’ve tried. I need something without caffeine to drink at night, though, so I guess I’ll stick with it.

Milk and a little powdered sugar and cinnamon. Mmm. Yes please.

This has the really dry and fuzzy characteristics of a white tea to me. Not like a usual red tea… it’s strange. Those are the two reasons I normally don’t like a white tea. There isn’t the usual rooibos flavor here. Disappointed.

Really nice Redbush. Probably the nicest bagged one I’ve found. Nice flavour that is quite full bodied and strong for a redbush but doesn’t go bitter. Even if you walk off and forget about it.

Nice straight, with milk, with lemon, with caramel, with apple juice. In fact their isn’t much that this tea won’t go with. Even tried it with coconut once, it was surprisingly nice.

A definite staple of my tea cupboard.

No milk, no sugar, ever. Use taste buds!
