This tea is caffeine free with a light, delicate grassy flavor which is delightfully aromatic and soothing.
Organic Green Rooibos is a more recent innovation in the history of this very special herbal tea. The first Rooibos teas were marketed in 1904 by Benjamin Ginsberg, a Russian immigrant who was from a family of tea experts. How could he possibly know back then that Rooibos would become such a popular and favorite beverage?
We are so glad he had such foresight! At Local Coffee + tea we love Rooibos tea and our customers enjoy our great selection of flavors too.
It therefore makes us very happy to introduce to you a new Rooibos which is Certified Organic and not the familiar red but GREEN.
Made from the same bush Aspalathis linearis, the leaves are harvested and bruised but immediately fired which prevents the traditional oxidation process. The needle like leaves remain a light green/yellow. Like all Rooibos, this tea is caffeine free with a light, delicate grassy flavor which is delightfully aromatic and soothing.
When you drink Organic Green Rooibos you will receive the same refreshing qualities and health benefits of the red variety with some additional antioxidants!
