Description

A delicious pairing of vanilla and almond against a delicate Rooibos backdrop, for a warm and sophisticated blend.

Sprinkled with pieces of vanilla pods, this naturally caffeine-free tea may be enjoyed at any time of the day or evening.

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

Enjoyed 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.

Suggestion of preparation

It smells beautiful in the bag. The top of the taste is fine-like a standard black tea with vanilla but there is a strong aftertaste of what I imagine pencil shavings would taste like. For this reason, it is not to my taste and I am finding it hard to drink. I’m hoping I messed the tea up somehow and it improves with future brews but after several cups and a pot of the stuff, I doubt that is the case.

Very light tea flavor, too light in my opinion, to handle the vanilla, which is not to my taste an enhancement.

I don’t drink this one as often as the others because it’s kind of like a dessert. Sweet, meant as a treat.
