Day 13: Rooibos Vanilla

One of our fav Rooibos treats

Rooibos Vanilla is our classic Organic rooibos with the addition of Organic Madagascan Vanilla. WOW!! An amazing sweet treat, and caffeine free so perfect for the kids treat too!

Rooibos (pronounced “roy-boss”) Tea, can sometimes be known as Redbush Or Red Tea, it comes from the Shrub Aspalathus Linearis, which is only found on the slopes of Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. It is known for its medicinal qualities, however as we are not doctors we can't verify this, so we decided that if you're going to drink Rooibos Tea for health reasons it might as well taste as good as possible plus the added bonus of sweet Madagascan vanilla?? It's a win win in our book!

How to Brew Rooibos

Infuse one tea measure per pot or one heaped teaspoon per cup, use freshly boiled water 100ºC, brew 3-5 minutes. we always cover our tea while it’s infusing, this keeps all the heat in the cup whilst allowing the correct brewing time.

Our Rooibos teas are great Iced - why not brew up an Iced tea Jug and pop it into the fridge?Good quality loose leaf rooibos can typically be infused a couple of times.

Why not try it as a Latte?
Start as above brew one spoon of Rooibos in boiling water. Brew for 3-5 minutes to make a concentrate of the tea (the "espresso" style shot) then top with hot, frothy milk. If you're a coffee fan, you can also add a shot of coffee.

We've a few recipes which you could try too; tea is such a versatile ingredient it is well worth experimenting with.

  • Rooibos Vanilla Float
  • Rooibos Vanilla Chai
  • Rooibos Vanilla Cupcakes

Don't just take our word for it, here's what some of our customers have to say on Feefo:

"This is SO GOOD! Try some yourself"

"Lovely change from the plain rooibos, makes a lovely cup of tea"

"Dessert in a cup. Great served cold as well"
