Description

Palais des Thés has combined its favorite Earl Grey recipe, Thé des Lords, with a Rooibos.

The blend, which includes red petals balances the strong lemon flavor of our bergamot with mellow Rooibos.

Naturally caffeine-free.

 

Did you know? Literally, Rooibos means “red tea” in South African. 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.
