Red Tea contains powerful antioxidants so it also helps boost the immune system, destroy free radicals and slow the aging process.
Rooibos is the perfect choice for introducing children to tea and for those sensitive to caffeine.

Brewing Instructions for Rooibos Tea

Our instructions are only general guidelines. For your ultimate enjoyment please experiment with the steeping time, water temperature, and the amount of tea leaves.
Basic Rooibos Tea Brewing Instruction

  1. Measure the desired amount of tea leaves and place into a teapot or teacup. Use 1 tsp or 2.3g of tea leaves for every 8oz (1 cup) of water.
  2. Bring the water to a rolling boil at 212oF (100oC).
  3. Add enough hot water to submerse the tea leaves and let it sit for a few seconds before pouring out the water. Warming the tea leaves and teaware allow for a better brew.
  4. Add boiling water and let the tea leaves steep for 3 to 5 minutes.
    Note: Adding sugar or honey is optional.

  1. To make iced tea, double the amount of tea leaves recommended on the basic tea brewing instructions.

    Note: In general, the volume of ice added should equal the volume of water used to brew the tea.

Review from about Rooibos Cream of Desert

“The color of this tisane when brewed is really beautiful. It’s dark copper with a radiant halo of glowing gold all around the rim of the mug. The flavor is creamy sweet with a smooth and rooibos/fruit/floral aftertaste that is very delicious. I loved that this blend had an absence of glaring flavor. There was a lot of flavor, but none of it was gaudy or too showy. Instead, it was sweet and smooth and richly flavored with the taste of the cut leaf. I can see this being an excellent choice for pairing with dessert or enjoying on its own as a sweet but sugar and caffeine free finish to a meal. ” Full review read here.
