Tchaikovsky’s Memory Rooibos
masterpiece blend of almond scented marzipan and fruity papaya finished with snowflake candies and tiny silver balls

FLAVOR PROFILE
This Tchaikovsky’s Memory Rooibos is a masterpiece to be enjoyed all through the year. Fragrant holiday marzipan notes are perfectly blended with natural almond flavor, almond pieces and candied snowflakes into a rich rooibos base. 

This delightfully smooth rooibos tisane is fruity and nutty and has a vibrant, sweet finish.

BENEFITS
As a rooibos, this tisane is naturally caffeine-free and contains soothing properties to aid relaxation.

Rooibos tisanes provide antioxidant benefits that studies show may help fight cancer, protect against heart disease and may positively affect blood sugar. 

SERVING SUGGESTIONS
Tchaikovsky’s Memory Rooibos can be enjoyed hot or iced, sweetened with sugar, honey or other sweeteners. Milk may also be added.

The rich, sweet notes of this tisane lends itself to be a wonderful base for a latte style beverage we call "lattea-s."

To prepare a lattea using our fabulous French Caramel Creme Brulee,

  1. Prepare tisane according to the traditional hot tea method below. 
  2. Sweeten one cup to taste if desired.
  3. Heat one cup of milk in a saucepan being careful not to scold. 
  4. Using a whisk or aeroater, froth the milk. 
  5. Pour the tisane into a large mug, leaving room for the frothy milk.
  6. Pour the milk over the tisane in the mug.
  7. Spoon the remaining milk foam over the top of the beverage.

PREPARATION
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.

Iced Tea
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.

Cold-infusion Method*
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 tea leaves 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 tea has higher levels of antioxidants, less tannins and less caffeine. To serve this tea hot, simply pour the cold-infused tea into a saucepan over medium heat and gently warm to desired temperature.
