Sweet and Spicy, Robust Red Bush Chai
Red Bush, or Rooibos, is native to the small mountainous area of Cederberg in the Western Cape province of South Africa. Rooibos is that area’s most famous export. Honeybush is also indigenous to the cape of South Africa.
Our Red Bush Chai is a blend of organic rooibos and honeybush that is packed with minerals, vitamin C, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. High in antioxidants, it is also known to be soothing to the stomach.
This chai blend is naturally free of caffeine which makes it great for any time of day. Both Rooibos and Honeybush enhance in flavor the more time you allow it to brew, so enjoy the lovely aroma as you let it steep just a little longer.
There is something so warming and comforting about the spices in chai. The golden-red brew is aromatic, putting forward cinnamon, cardamon, peppercorn, ginger, star anise, and cloves. A slight citrus note shines through. The rich, warming, spicy-sweet flavors blend for a well-balanced cup. A strong, nutty flavor marries well with the spices.
This a hydrating, restorative drink that can be enjoyed later in the evening. It is sweet enough to stand alone, without sugar, while you may enjoy a splash of milk or your favorite non-dairy creaminess to heighten the enjoyment. Red Bush Chai is a delicious accompaniment to dessert, cheeses, and roasted nuts.
