(Organic Caffeine Free Rooibos Tea) This tea blend has a sparkling-like lemon flavor which gives this blend a fresh and lively character – terrific served hot and sensational served iced! This tea is very soothing when served hot with a little honey, perfect for those winter sore throats! Rooibos is an ultra fine, delicate tea and once brewed it will produce a hearty red color with a warm scent. Rooibos holds a superior, natural sweetness that is unsurpassed with a smooth and aromatic after taste!
Modern medical institutes and, most notably Japan have taken quick notice of the medical benefits of consuming this beverage and have amassed findings on Rooibos including anti-viral, anti-spasmodic and anti-allergic properties. They have also found that Rooibos is over 50 times more active in anti-oxidant properties then green tea!
Rooibos is caffeine free, rich in naturally occurring trace elements, and contains healthy amounts of Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Fluoride, Manganese, Zinc, Calcium, and Vitamin C. It also contains fair amounts of alpha-hydroxy acid, which is known to promote healthy skin. This is truly an amazing plant that is just starting to make its way into western culture from its mountain peak home of South Africa.
This tea is not a commercial blend, but I personally hand mix it in small batches to ensure quality and uniformity of each and every custom tea tin.
Brew: Steep 1 teaspoon in 8 oz water that has been brought to a rolling boil for 5-7 minutes. This particular blend is excellent iced and I recommend brewing 5-6 teaspoons of loose tea to make a mild 1 gallon of sun tea that is phenomenal served over ice! This will make your tea tin produce almost 5 gallons of iced tea and it is an excellent way to welcome company into your home 🙂
Organic Ingredients: Red Rooibos, Lemon Peel, Lemon grass
Taste: Sparkling-like lemon flavor, fresh & lively. Excellent hot or cold!
Each tin contains 1/2 cup of loose tea and will make approximately 20 cups of brewed tea.
Soothing Lemon Wellness is very nice. I like lemon…usually LOTS and LOTS of lemon in types of tisanes like this…but the lemon is more mellow than I thought it would be and I do like it quite a bit still.
Maybe that is what they mean by SOOTHING. Regardless this is a satisfying cup.
This seems like it would be the perfect ending to a stressful day. I assume, but have yet to try, that it would be lovely iced, as well.
