Smooth South African Rooibos with a zesty orange kick
Take South African Rooibos. Add spices from around the world - cinnamon, cardomom, spicy, pink peppercorns and the crisp freshness of lemongrass. It's a citrusy, spicy Rooibos revelation.
Try chilling, double strength, then chilled, in a jug of crushed ice topped with ginger beer!
Brewing the best cup. One teaspoon per cup. Boiling water, then brew your rooibos, 5+ mins.
The word Rooibos is from Afrikaans, literally meaning ‘red bush’. Although The bushes themselves are green and the leaves that are quickly dried after picking are sold as green rooibos most rooibos that is consumed has a distinctive orange red colour and gives a sweeter taste that develops during the post-harvest “fermentation” (oxidation) process, brought about by natural enzymes in the plant.
It's caffeine-free, low in astringency when compared to black or green tea leaves and contains minerals including iron, potassium, copper, zinc and fluoride.

What a lovely way to start the day - so refreshing and 'zingy' jusy love it!
This was on my first order with Tugboat and very nice it is too. The loose leaf is much nicer (and more environmentally friendly and better value) than any citrus blend rooibos teabags I have had before. I shall certainly be getting more of this (and the "Blood Orange" which I also ordered). Highly recommended for those who enjoy a bit of zest.
