Description

Looking for some extra kick in your cup? Try our Rooibos Redbush Fire! This fresh and lively tea is guaranteed to please with its taste bursting with zesty citrus flavour. Perfect for a warm summer’s evening, the addition of red safflowers in the blend reminds you of a fiery sunset in the great open plains of the African Savannah. Rooibos Redbush Fire is also infused with freshly squeezed oranges to top off this delightfully refreshing brew.

In the past few years, Rooibos tea’s demand has increased by more than fifty percent as more and more consumers branch out and explore this unique and distinctive blend. Originating from the Cederberg region of beautiful South Africa, Rooibos Tea was first used by the Khoisans, the indigenous Bushmen situated in the area. These tribespeople would often use the Rooibos leaves for herbal remedies before they acquired a taste for it as a delicious drink in its own right! Its popularity has not always been assured however, with its shaky history almost spelling the end of the brew entirely!

By the 18th Century, European Colonisation had swept across the continent and South Africa’s indigenous population were at risk of disappearing from their homeland. As these people began to fade from history, so too did their way of life. In fact, it was not until 1772 that a botanist named Carl Humberg rediscovered the leaves and revived a more widespread interest in the beverage. Slowly but surely, Rooibos tea steadily grew in popularity, and by the outbreak of the Second World War, its consumption in the western hemisphere exploded as importing normal tea from the Asian continent became increasingly difficult.

Once again, the wonders of Rooibos tea are being explored as new and inventive blends are created every year. Rooibos Redbush Fire is just one such blend which can offer a beautiful infusion of new and old.

Type of Tea: Rooibos Loose Leaf Tea 

Origin: The Cederberg Region, South Africa.

Brewing Guide: Brew using freshly boiled water and infuse for 8 to 10 minutes.

How to Serve: With its rich zesty flavour, Rooibos Redbush Fire is best enjoyed as it is. However, if you wish to add an extra citrus punch, consider lemon!

Tasting Notes: The strong flavours of orange smoothly massage your palette, leaving a powerful but delicious aftertaste. The taste of Rooibos also prevails through the brew, adding a classic side-note.

Colour in Cup: Deep red liquor with golden highlights.

Health Benefits of Rooibos Tea: It’s hard to go wrong with Rooibos Tea when it comes to its incredible health benefits. In fact, Scientific Studies have discovered correlations between Rooibos consumption and improved Antispasmodic properties, Cardiovascular systems, and even overall bone health! Furthermore, Rooibos tea is known to relieve stress, nervous tension and hypertensive conditions. If that wasn’t even, and is also caffeine free, you can read more about Red Bush Tea Benefits.

  9. A really subtle orange flavour the perfectly complements the Rooibos and makes it a lot more tasty and with none of the medicinal flavour that it can sometimes have
