Rooibos tea, meaning “red bush”, is a broom-like member of the plant family Fabaceae that grows in South Africa. Rooibos tea has been popular in Southern Africa for generations, but is now consumed in many countries worldwide. Rooibos tea has a taste and color somewhat similar to hibiscus tea, with more or less of an earthy flavor like yerba mate.
Generally, the leaves undergo an oxidation (often known as fermentation) in common tea processing terminology. This process produces the distinctive reddish-brown color of Rooibos and enhances the flavor. Rooibos tea is commonly prepared in the same manner as black tea, water temperature should reach boiling and steep for a minimum of 3 minutes. Milk and sugar or honey are added to taste, but Rooibos tea is excellent as a latte, cappuccino or iced.
Ingredients: Rooibos, peppermint leaves, caramel, rose buds, flavor.
