Rooibos Earl Grey
From / Depuis $7,00
ORIGIN: SOUTH AFRICA
Rooibos naturally flavored with bergamot, the same essential ingredient of earl grey tea.
Nicknamed ”red tea” or ”bush tea”, this beverage is not tea because it comes from the aspalathus linearis bush instead of the tea plantcamellia sinensis. Consequently, it is rather a herbal tea. Rooibos is cultivated on the high lands of Cedarberg in South Africa, at an altitude ranging from 1500 to 2500 feet. During the oxydation process, the green leaves / twigs turn from a light green to an orange color. It is rich in antioxydants, minerals and vitamine C. It is also cafeine free, with low tannins. The beverage is sweet and without any bitterness.
