Origin: South Africa Leaf Type: Rooibos Taste: Fresh vanilla Drink: Black or with milk and sugar to taste Brew: 3-5 minutes according to taste When to drink: As a sweet caffeine-free drink for any time of day
Bringing to mind the aroma of a freshly opened vanilla pod, Whittard's Vanilla Rooibos is a deliciously sweet treat for any time of day.
Low in tannin, Rooibos is a hugely popular tea, drunk for its alleged health benefits as well as its individual flavour. Rooibos (literally meaning 'Redbush' in Afrikaans) grows only in the Cederberg mountain area of South Africa, on small shrubby bushes that produce its green, needle like leaves. When fermented, the leaves turn red, making a rich-coloured full-bodied tea. Whittard's Vanilla Rooibos Tea contains real vanilla pieces, which give it a soft, sweet, rich flavour.
Naturally caffeine-free, Vanilla Rooibos Tea is a great-tasting alternative to classic Rooibos, with an irresistible sweet kick.
Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Can be drunk with or without milk.
