The origins of our Organic Vanilla Rooibos Loose Leaf
Sourced from South Africa where the Aspalathus linearis, a member of the Fabaceae family of plant, grows natively, Rooibos or Red Bush, so named because of the fresh green rooibos leaves turn a distinctive red colour following oxidization, is a caffeine-free herbal tea that has been growing in popularity over recent years.
Like our standard luxury Organic Rooibos tea, this Tisane, another name for a Herbal Tea, has the same features the same single-origin South African loose-leaf from the Western Cape, but with added vanilla pieces and natural vanilla flavouring. Once the small, needle-like leaves have infused with boiling water, a bright orange infusion is seen.
For those who already love the full-bodied, earthy caramel and creamy taste of Red Bush, this blend elevates expectations with a mild vanilla sweet aftertaste that is ever so moreish. Enjoy as a hot or cold brew, with or without milk and sweetener.
