Rooibos, Mate and Herbal Tea Blends

Herbal teas, AKA Tisanes, as these teas don’t contain the plant Camellia Sinesis

Rooibos is a nutritious herb and hails from South Africa. Like Tea (Camellia Sinesis) it is green and when steeped makes a delicious refreshing beverage.  The color and flavor of Red Rooibos develops when enzymes that occur naturally in the plant turn the shredded green tea leaves red. This happens when the tea is slowly dried in the sun after being harvested. Green Rooibos skips this step and the tea leaves are dried quickly.
