Origin: South Africa Leaf Type: Rooibos Taste: Fresh vanilla Drink: Black or with milk and sugar to taste Brew: 3-5 minutes according to taste When to drink: As a sweet caffeine-free drink for any time of day
Bringing to mind the aroma of a freshly opened vanilla pod, Whittard's Vanilla Rooibos is a deliciously sweet treat for any time of day.
Low in tannin, Rooibos is a hugely popular tea, drunk for its alleged health benefits as well as its individual flavor. Rooibos (literally meaning 'Redbush' in Afrikaans) grows only in the Cederberg mountain area of South Africa, on small shrubby bushes that produce its green, needle like leaves. When fermented, the leaves turn red, making a rich-colored full-bodied tea. Whittard's Vanilla Rooibos Tea contains real vanilla pieces, which give it a soft, sweet, rich flavor.
Naturally caffeine-free, Vanilla Rooibos Tea is a great-tasting alternative to classic Rooibos, with an irresistible sweet kick.
