Lemon Sunset Rooibos Loose Leaf Tea is a strong, bright rooibos with lemon grass, lemon peel and is naturally caffeine free.
A complex and powerful flavor profile, this Rooibos has the natural essence of sun kissed lemons. A tart, citrus edge softened by calendula petals, lemongrass and natural flavors. We think this tea is best served hot.
Lemon Sunset is naturally caffeine-free. Rooibos is a direct translation from Afrikaan meaning “red bush”. This natural herb grows around 1,500 to 2,000 feet above sea level in the Cederberg Mountains of the Western Cape of South Africa.
Rooibos seeds are planted during February and March and tended for 18 months. The entire bush is harvested, cut and milled to a uniform length. Then bruised between rollers to trigger the oxidation process. This turns the tea from green to the characteristic reddish brown color, in addition to developing a natural sweet aroma.
Our Rooibos has a soothing effect on headaches, disturbed sleeping patterns and digestive or colic problems. Many of our daily recommended nutrients can be derived from hot or iced cups of Rooibos. A few examples include Iron, Copper, Zinc, Magnesium, Fluoride, Manganese and Sodium. In other words, healthy skin, teeth, bones, blood and metabolic functions.
Does this all sound too good to be true? We don’t think so, and we drink a ton of Rooibos at Local Tea Company. We are all very healthy specimens! You can make 20 to 25 cups of tea from 2 oz of loose leaf rooibos. We also suggest steeping our Rooibos multiple times for even more cups of great tea.
