Brewing instructions
Description

Rooibos Earl Grey Tea is a blend of Rooibos Tea and bergamot oil - the classic ingredient in Earl Grey. It boasts bold herbaceous flavours with distinct citrusy hints; there is nothing quite like it.

We take pride in packing it fresh to order here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company. This is our way of ensuring both quality and consistency from the first to the last cuppa.

What is Rooibos Earl Grey Loose Tea

Rooibos Tea is a herb that grows only in the Cederberg region of South Africa. It comes from the perennial Aspalathus linearis plant, a member of the Fabaceae (Legume) family.

Indigenous communities have consumed it for centuries - in part due to what are now well-documented Rooibos Tea Benefits. Perhaps most famous of all is its ability to alleviate mild allergies.

Then there is Earl Grey, which is usually - although not here - a type of Flavoured China Black Tea. Legend has it that Charles Grey, the second Earl Grey, was named after it upon saving a boy from drowning in a river.

The child’s father, overcome with gratitude, gifted the Earl with Tea leaves scented with bergamot oil. However, it is little more than a myth.

What no one can deny is that, when combined, Earl Grey’s quintessential flavours (excluding Black Tea) and Rooibos leaves are a match made in heaven.

Casual drinkers and connoisseurs alike flock to it for such a reason - as, hopefully, you will soon find out. First, however, it is probably worth answering the question, “Does Rooibos Earl Grey Tea have caffeine?”

Does Rooibos Earl Grey Tea Have Caffeine?

Caffeine is a stimulating chemical compound that most of us are already familiar with. It famously provides an energy boost upon consumption, which is the case when you drink Black Tea, say, or perhaps most commonly, Fresh Coffee.

Earl Grey Rooibos Tea, on the other hand, isn’t a “Tea” in the conventional sense. It contains no leaves from the Tea plant, meaning it is 100% caffeine-free.

Rooibos Earl Grey Tea Pregnancy

You’d be forgiven for thinking that the absence of caffeine makes Rooibos Earl Grey Tea safe during pregnancy. It is, in fact, a little more complicated than that. While small amounts of this infusion might be all right for expecting mother, too much could, potentially, lead to Rooibos Tea Earl Grey side effects.

We therefore recommend erring on the side of caution and holding off - it’ll be worth the wait!

How to Make Rooibos Earl Grey Tea

1, Add Loose Leaf Tea to a Tea Infuser or Filter.

2, Place the Tea-filled accessory in a cup or mug.

3, Put the kettle on and, once boiled to 100°C, pour it over the leaves.

4, Allow it to steep for 5-10 minutes.

How to Serve: Consider honey or lemon. Alternatively, serve it without additions.

Rooibos Earl Grey Tea Benefits

This Herbal Tea can, among other qualities, provide relief from headaches, insomnia, asthma and, as mentioned previously, mild allergies.

It contains high levels of iron, calcium, potassium, copper, manganese, zinc, magnesium and alpha hydroxy acid. Its beneficial antioxidants, meanwhile, include nothofagin and aspalathin, which can combat free radicals in the body.
