Red Tea - Organic rooibos
Rooibos is often referred to as 'Red Tea', although it isn't officially 'tea'; rather it comes from a native South African shrub. Rooibos gets it characteristic fiery red colour as it dries under the hot African sun. This blend of rooibos brews a smooth, earthy cup, with notes of caramel, vanilla and honey. A popular caffeine-free alternative to black tea. Enjoy with or without milk.
