Rooibos herbal tea from South Africa infused with the delicate scent of night-blooming jasmine flowers. If you enjoy classic jasmine tea, keep this one on hand, too, for when you need a caffeine-free treat. Mellow and smooth, delicately sugary notes from the Rooibos. Lingering airy jasmine fragrance, like fine Jasmine Pearl tea (which tends to be more delicate and lightly perfumy). Rounded, fresh finish.
This tea contains no caffeine | Steep at 212° for 5 minutes.
Blended With Rooibos Tea & Natural Jasmine Flavor
The rooibos bush (pron: 'roy-bus') grows only in the Cederberg Mountain range of South Africa. It was first noted by botanist Carl Humberg in 1772. A century later, Benjamin Ginsberg, a Russian immigrant, realized its marketing potential, and in 1904 began offering it as an herbal substitute to tea. The difficulty of shipping tea during World War II boosted demand for Rooibos, which began to be referred to as 'Red Bush Tea', or simply 'Red Tea.' In Japan, Rooibos is believed to aid longevity and is known as Long Life Tea.
