This is a flavoured Rooibos Tea noted for its bold citrusy taste and herbaceous undertones. The addition of blood orange flavouring to this Herbal Tea makes for a match made in heaven. One can choose to serve it as a hot beverage in the winter or a cooling Iced Tea in the summer. Whatever you decide, expect great taste, low tannins and extraordinary health benefits.
This is a caffeine-free infusion well-suited to those looking to cut down their intake. It makes for an excellent choice before bed, and is particularly popular among those who're pregnant. According to NHS Choices, pregnant women should aim to avoid consuming more than 200 mg of caffeine daily. With Rooibos Blood Orange Tea, however, you don't have to worry about any at all!
So What is Rooibos
Rooibos comes from the Aspalathus linearis plant, which grows exclusively in South Africa. It has many nicknames, including "Red Bush", "Bush Tea" and "Red Tea". Most of these names allude to the fact that, after fermentation, Rooibos is indeed notably red in colour. "Bush Tea", meanwhile, refers to the appearance of the plant itself.
This plant can grow in some of the country's harshest conditions. It often has to survive in temperatures above 40°C in the summer and well below zero in the winter. This, indeed, makes it a notably versatile and hardy herb! The indigenous Khoisan people have long held it in high regard, often brewing the leaves for Rooibos Tea benefits.
Flavoured Rooibos Tea
The versatility of Rooibos also extends to its consumption in Tea-form. It suits the addition of a plethora of ingredients from ginger to caramel to, of course, blood orange. Rooibos Blood Orange Tea, in particular, has become increasingly popular among our customers. Why not find out why today with this delightful and wholesome beverage?
