Rooibos is only grown in a small area in the Cederberg region of the Western Cape province. The leaves are oxidized or fermented to produce the distinctive reddish-brown color. The flavor is sweet and slightly nutty. Preparation of Rooibos tea is essentially the same as black tea save that the flavor is improved by longer brewing. The resulting brew is a reddish brown color, perhaps explaining why Rooibos is sometimes referred to as "red tea." Four ounce pouch contains approximately 42 organic rooibos tea bags.

Directions: Hot Tea preparation (single serving): Bring water to a boil. Pour water over 1 tea bag. Steep 3-5 minutes.

Sun Tea preparation for a half-gallon pitcher (2 qts): Use 7 tea bags for each half-gallon of water. Place tea bag in half-gallon jar filled with water. Cap jar loosely and place in sunshine. Steep 3-4 hours. Remove tea bags. Refrigerate within 1 hour. Discard left over tea after 24 hours.

Accolades for Organic Rooibos Tea Bags

My daughter and I love the rooibos tea at Kripalu Yoga Center in the Berkshires (Mass.) When we learned that it came from Starwest Botanicals, I immediately ordered some. It is the same excellent tea, better than other brands I have bought. The bags are larger, too, so you can make a bigger cup of tea. Very mellow and satisfying. No suger needed.
