FAQ - Frequently Asked Question

What is Rooibos tea?

Rooibos tea is made from the specially cultivated Aspalathus linearis plant. This belongs to the legume family. Rooibos tea is not actually a tea, but is classified as an herbal tea.

How do you make Rooibos tea?

For one cup (approx. 200 ml) take a 2.5 g tea bag or a well-heaped teaspoon of loose Rooibos tea and pour it over with hot, not boiling water. The ideal temperature is around 90 degrees.

How long do you let Rooibos tea brew?

It's a matter of taste: the more intense and stronger you like the tea, the longer you let it steep. Usually between 5 and 9 minutes. In contrast to black and green teas, you can let Rooibos tea steep longer. This is because it does not contain any bitter substances that would otherwise be released from the parts of the plant if it is pulled too long.

How does Rooibos tea taste best?

The quality of the product and the water used are decisive for the taste of a Rooibos tea. The Rooibos should of course be grown sustainably and made with 100 percent organic ingredients. The softer and less lime the water is, the better the aroma develops. Water filters also help here.

Can you drink Rooibos tea with milk?

A dash of milk with the Rooibos tea makes its taste even more full-bodied. However, you should always pour Rooibos tea with water that is no longer boiling (approx. 90 degrees).

How do you properly store Rooibos tea?

Store the Rooibos tea in air and light-protected containers. Store them in cool and dry places.

Can you drink Rooibos tea in the evening?

Rooibos tea is naturally caffeine-free. You can enjoy it at any time without hesitation.

Can children drink Rooibos tea?

Since Rooibos tea does not contain any caffeine or bitter substances, you can offer your children the tea as an alternative to herbal or fruit tea.

Is Rooibos Tea Healthy?

Rooibos is beneficial to health. It contains all of the essential minerals our body needs, such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc and sodium, as well as trace elements such as copper and manganese. The flavonoids and tannins in Rooibos are proven anti-oxidants that help the body fight free radicals. They also have an antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal effect.
