As a rooibos, this tisane is naturally caffeine-free and contains soothing properties to aid relaxation.
Rooibos and green rooibos (unfermented rooibos—think black tea which is fermented vs. green tea which is not) both provide antioxidant benefits. Studies show the regular consumption of rooibos in either form may help fight cancer, protect against heart disease and may positively affect blood sugar.
Honeybush is a lesser known tisane that is rising in popularity. Closely related to the rooibos bush and also indigenous to South Africa, honeybush is equally beneficial. It is naturally sweet and has honey-like aroma and notes—hence its name. The leaves, bark and stems of this bush contain a variety of minerals including calcium, iron and zinc as well as other plant compounds with antioxidant benefits.
Traditionally, calendula is known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant components.
Our Lemon Souffle Rooibos is excellent served hot or iced; plain or sweetened with sugar, honey or other sweeteners. Milk may also be added to enhance the natural creaminess of this tisane.
Traditional Hot Tea
Measure one heaping teaspoon of tea leaves per one cup water into a tea filter or into an infuser of your choice. Keep in mind, the infuser you choose must be large enough to allow the tea leaves to swell and unfurl. This allows the tea leaves to release their full flavor. Place filter into teapot or mug. Bring filtered or freshly drawn water to a boil then pour into teapot or mug. Infuse 8-10 minutes. Remove the filter and discard or remove infuser and discard tea leaves. Garnish as desired with sugar, honey, sweetener and/or lemon slices.
Measure six heaping teaspoons of tea leaves into a tea filter and place into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Bring 2 cups of filtered or freshly drawn water to a boil. Immediately pour boiled water over filter into teapot or heat-resistant pitcher. Infuse 8-10 minutes. Remove filter and sweeten tea with ½ cup sugar if desired. Add 2 cups of filtered or freshly drawn water to a serving pitcher. Pour in prepared tea and mix well. Add 2 cups ice and stir. Serve immediately or refrigerate.
Measure four teaspoons of tea leaves into a tea filter and place inside a clean glass jar or small pitcher. Position filter so that the rooibos blend will be submerged and the top hangs over the side of the jar or pitcher so that leaves do not spill out once water is added. Pour four cups of filtered or freshly drawn water over the filter. Cover with lid or plastic wrap. Refrigerate 8-12 hours (or overnight).
*Cold-infused teas and tisanes have higher levels of antioxidants. To serve hot, simply pour the cold-infused tisane into a saucepan over medium heat and gently warm to desired temperature.
Store Lemon Souffle Rooibos in a cool, dark place away from light and moisture. If stored properly, this tisane will stay fresh for up to two years.
