While a South African green rooibos, which translates to 'red bush' in Afrikaans, might seem like quite the contradiction, the concept is actually similar to green tea. Gentle heating prevents oxidation and creates a fresh, peachy-sweet infusion. Unlike green tea, rooibos is naturally caffeine-free.

Ingredients

Organic rooibos tea


Green rooibos* (*certified organic)


Important note: Always add boiling water and leave to infuse for 5 minutes. This is the only way to get a safe food.

Preparation
Quantity Temperature Time
2 ½ tsp / 250 ml 100.0° C 1 infusion 5 min.

Background Knowledge

Rooibos, or red bush, has been a popular infusion in South Africa for many generations. Dutch settlers to the Cape developed rooibos as an economical alternative to black tea which, at the time, was an expensive commodity. Similar to black tea processing, red rooibos is produced by grinding and bruising the leaves in order to accelerate oxidation which is also responsible for the leaves' red coloration. Green rooibos, like green tea, is only lightly oxidized and retains many of the powerful antioxidants and minerals. At PAPER & TEA we are huge fans of this caffeine free steep – pronounced fresh, peachy-apricot aromas make it a tantalizing treat, to be enjoyed hot or cold and at any time of the day.
