Rooibos tea is unique, not least because it is harvested from a different plant than teas, from the camellia sinensis plant. It is grown in the Western Cape Province and is the drink of choice for many South Africans. The leaves are green when harvested but transform into a rustic shade of red when oxidised.
Rooibos tea is incredibly smooth and gentle with a natural sweetness and slightly nutty taste. When brewed for longer, rooibos is full-bodied and rich, and you can smell the warm woody notes rising from your cup or teapot.
The African red bush tea called rooibos is often a welcome change from the caffeine-free tea standards like chamomile and peppermint.
Hint: For the perfect cup of rooibos tea, boil fresh water and pour over one teaspoon of leaves for every cup you are making. Leave to brew for a few minutes and your tea will be ready for your enjoyment!Add milk and sugar to your hot tea if required – it can also be served as an excellent iced tea.
