Green rooibos comes from the same plant as the typical red rooibos does, but it is all in the processing that makes the difference between the two different teas. With the green rooibos the processing does not include the same bruising or oxidization of the leaves which result in the green appearance. Because of the difference in preparation the resulting tea cup is a lot different from the traditional rooibos.
The green rooibos cup of tea resembles a green cup of tea as it is lighter than its more processed tea brother. The first thing you will notice in the green rooibos tea cup is that its appearance is a lot lighter, which matches its fruity light flavor as well. The tea also has a sweeter taste than the red rooibos and a bit earthier of a taste. A great new experience if you are really looking to try out a new tea.
Best if steeped at 180 ° for 3 minutes.
Ingredients: Green rooibos.
