Additional Information

  • Description
    Hot, sweet and spicy, our very special blend of rich South African rooibos with chai spices and cocoa nibs is the herbal equivalent of hot chocolate. We've spiced those warming notes of cinnamon, cardamom and ginger with a twist of black pepper, and the deliciously bittersweet taste of the cocoa is beautifully complemented by the creamy sweetness of rooibos. It's what you might call tea gourmandise.

Origin: South Africa

Herbal rooibos and honeybush are unique to the Cederberg Mountains in South Africa, where they've been harvested by Khoisan tribes for centuries. The leaves are usually processed in a similar way to black tea, giving a fruity, caffeine-free infusion.

South African "Red Bush" Tea

Rooibos – a bush grown on the mountains of South Africa – has long been harvested to create a herbal infusion, with a smooth, treacle-toned taste. Seventeenth-century Dutch settlers soon developed a taste for the drink as a handy substitute for tea, but local bushmen had already passed down the secret of rooibos for generations. The leaves undergo a similar process to black tea, being oxidised for a distinctive reddish-brown colour and malty flavour. Occasionally, rooibos is produced in a more similar manner to green tea: you'll find this unusual "green" rooibos in our Rainforest Rooibos blend.
