Tea Tuesday takes a detour from the previous week's uplifting sweet citrus ginger tea with a velvety smooth caffeine free Rooibos.
We've paired the iconic South African herb with fine Vanilla chips to make a smooth tea perfect for late night cuppas after dinner when you need a little wind down to settle in for the night.
Rooibos is also great for relieving allergy symptoms and with the onset of spring, it makes a great choice this time of year.
What is Rooibos?
Rooibos is a tea made from the needle like leaves of the Rooibos shrub (also known ad Red Bush) grown in the mountainous West Cape of South Africa.
Famous for it's great taste, unique color and myriads health benefits, Roibos is high in Vitamin C, Low in bitter Tannis and naturally caffeine free, Rooibos makes the perfect choose for those wanting to cut down or reduce their consumption of caffeine. Rooibos also contains helpful polyphenols, including flavanols, flavones, flavanones, dihydrochalcones, aspalathin and nothofagin. Its medicinal benefits (confirmed by The US Department of Agriculture) have been confirmed that rooibos tea is capable of reducing cancer, heart disease, premature aging and other conditions such as headaches, insomnia, asthma, eczema, bone weakness, hypertension, allergies.
Use 1 cup of freshly boiled water per teaspoon of tea. Steep for 3-5minutes, strain, serve and enjoy.
1 Bag makes 42 cups of tea.
What's Tea Tuesday?
When we launched Informal Tea back in 2011, we had a simple focus. To build a small range of the very best teas that we could. There was (and still is) no shortage of tea brands trying to fob off mediocre versions of every tea under the sun and we didn’t want to be like them.
5 years on and we find ourselves still not wanting to be like them and their un-inspired blends. So this year we decided that we wanted to push ourselves even further by embarking on a completely new adventure. This year we’re setting ourselves the challenge of launching a new tea blend every week.
From here on in, Tuesdays will be know as Tea Tuesday. A tearific teausday celebration marked by the release of a hand crafted limited edition tea specifically blended for that week.
On this adventure, we will travel into the outermost depths of tea’s frontier badlands. Each week will explore alternate experimental methods, creative and uncommoncombinations alongside a host of regional, vintage, varietal and artistic elements that make up a tea’s distinct personality.
Make no mistake, the logistics of rapidly launching bespoke tea's on the go will be a nightmare. There will be tears, delight and despair. But the thrill of discovery and our unwilling appetite for sacred tea knowledge is what fuels us on this path.
