Rooibos Original Organic
Rooibos is the popular national drink of South Africa. It is caffeine-free, full of flavour and rich in minerals and vitamins. Its natural sweetness makes it a real pleasure in both its plain and flavoured varieties.
Rooibos grows only in the South African Cape region and is harvested between January and May. As soon as the picked "brooms" are cut and pressed and the juice seeps out, natural fermentation sets in. Rooibos (red bush) acquires its characteristic red colour and full flavour during fermentation.
To produce green rooibos this fermentation is stopped. Green rooibos is much lighter in taste than fermented rooibos.
This non-flavoured rooibos is from organic production.
Serving Size: 2.5grs Leaves - 8 oz water
Temperature Water: 92 C-95 C
Steep Time: 5-7 minutes
We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of the leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of the leaves, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of the leaves.
