Water Temperature: 195°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 5-7 minutes

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the infusion time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn’t recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

Rooibos tea is often brewed strong and served with a slice of lemon, which draws out its sweet fruity notes of ripe berries.

Rooibos (Aspalathus linearis), meaning “Red Bush” in the Afrikaans language, is indigenous to South Africa’s Western Cape where it was originally consumed by the Khoisan nomadic ethnic groups. Today, rooibos is cultivated near the Cederberg Mountain area within the wider Cape Floristic Region, a biodiversity hotspot home to a natural shrubland, or “fynbos,” ecosystem.
