Detail

Inspired by a traditional Turkish recipe, Thé du Hammam is a rich, fruity tea created by Palais des Thés.

This unique recipe combines green date, luscious berries and the smooth, mellow flavor of Rooibos.

The perfect choice for the caffeine-sensitive who like to drink Thé du Hammam in the evening!

 

Did you know? Literally, Rooibos means “red tea”. Contrarily to general belief and its nickname, Rooibos is not a tea, is it a bush. Its plant has the appearance of a small bush and in the spring it is covered with small yellow flowers. Rooibos gives a completely naturally caffeine-free infusion, which is why it is so great for the evening!

Drunk as an infusion by the people of South Africa for the last 300 years, Rooibos has been cultivated and marketed since the 1930’s. Today it is the national drink of South Africa.

It is grown in the Cedarburg mountain of South Africa (125 miles north of Cape Town) at 1500-2000 ft. elevation. Its botanical name is Aspalanthus linearis. There are two varieties of Rooibos: “green” rooibos which is simply dried in the sun, and the more popular red tea” that goes through an oxidation process which gives the plant its characteristic slightly sweet taste and red color.

There are different grades of rooibos, but not much difference between them. However, the one called “long cut” offers the most interesting experience in terms of fine flavors and powerful aromas. It is the most harmonious and it is the only grade Palais des Thés buys.

Your opinion

From Heather | On 2/24/14 First, let me say how wonderful it was to see the new flagship store in New York! Thank you for making it to the US! I've been having friends from Paris send me a steady shipment of Palais des Thes for the past few years, and now getting my fix became a whole lot easier. I drink Rooibos du Hammam almost every evening.
