Rooibos Tea Flavor and Health Benefits
Because of its sweet, mellow flavor, rooibos is perfect for blending with other ingredients such as fruit, caramel, vanilla and chocolate. With a smooth, full-bodied flavor similar to a black tea, rooibos a very approachable beverage.
Rooibos contains high levels of antioxidants and other beneficial nutrients like iron, potassium, calcium, copper and zinc. Magnesium may help relieve insomnia and headaches, and antioxidants are well known for potentially helping prevent cancer.
This herb is naturally caffeine free, and never gets bitter. You can’t overstep rooibos; the longer you steep it, the sweeter the infusion becomes. With its naturally sweet flavor, rooibos is also a great option for those who are looking to curb their sweet tooth.
Here are a few of our best-selling rooibos teas:
This tea is a true chocolate lover’s delight. Notes of dark chocolate and fresh mint infuse the tea, while rooibos adds a nutty finish. Sweet and smooth, and full-bodied with a creamy finish. A gentle hint of mint and toasted nuts becomes stronger as the tea cools.
Velvety smooth and oh-so-fruity, this rooibos is like a pina colada without the calories. Sweet notes of banana, pineapple and coconut blossom in your mouth with every sip. The mouthfeel is rich and creamy, with a playful lightness.
Blueberries and Cream
This herbal dessert blend combines flavors of sweet, juicy blueberries, the sweet, woodsy flavor of rooibos and a subtle cream note, thanks to the yogurt bits.
Organic rooibos is bolstered by roasty notes of toasted brown rice, buckwheat and caramel. A perfect balance of sweet and salty. It has a buttery, rich aroma and a soft, sweet flavor.
