Rooibos, or red bush, has been a popular infusion in South Africa for many generations. Dutch settlers to the Cape developed rooibos as an economical alternative to black tea which, at the time, was an expensive commodity. Similar to black tea processing, red rooibos is produced by grinding and bruising the leaves in order to accelerate oxidation which is also responsible for the leaves' red coloration. Green rooibos, like green tea, is only lightly oxidized and retains many of the powerful antioxidants and minerals. At P & T we are huge fans of this caffeine free steep – pronounced fresh, peachy-apricot aromas make it a tantalizing treat, to be enjoyed hot or cold and at any time of the day.
