Day 18 of our Tea Advent Calendar. Only one week until Christmas!! Can you believe it? We have a special treat for you today. It's Rooibos Crème Brulee.

This herbal infusion consists of Rooibos, carob, puffed rice, sweet blackberry leaves, vanilla pieces sunflower petals and amaranth kernels.

Rooibos Creme Brulee SUKI

A creamy, burnt sugar-esqe rooibos dessert tea. And naturally caffeine free!

Rooibos or 'Redbush' Tea is grown in the western cape of South Africa and although many attempts have been tried to cultivate it elsewhere they have all failed. . Although there are little studies on the herb it is known that it carries very high antioxidants, more than that of green tea albeit slightly different types.

How We Like It

Brew 1 teaspoon (2.5g) per 200ml water. Or 1 Suki scoop per stump teapot. Infuse in freshly boiled water (98°C) for 3-6 minutes.
