South African Rooibos tea as Earl Grey!
Rooibos is the popular national drink in South Africa and is also known as "red tea". Calling it tea, however, is a bit misleading, as Rooibos does not contain tea from the tea plant Camilia Sinensis as we know it from black and green tea, but comes from the South African plant Rooibos.
The Rooibos plant has green leaves, but during the oxidation, where only spring water and the strong African sun are used, the leaves turn red.
In this variant, we have chosen to add bergamot oil to the Rooibos tea to achieve the classic Earl Grey flavor.
The taste is slightly sweet and slightly creamy. It contains no caffeine or tannic acid, is aromatic and rich in vitamin C, as well as iron and potassium. The bergamot oil adds the classic Earl Grey flavor.
In order to maintain the health-promoting substances in Rooibos tea, and not least to achieve the best taste experience, an infusion time of 6-8 minutes is recommended using 85 degrees hot water.
