Made using a combination of blueberries and creamy yoghurt, along with blue cornflowers, this bright and fruity redbush tea is wonderfully unique and very refreshing.
Rooibos is a naturally caffeine-free drink that is sourced from the Aspalathus linearis, a plant that is indigenous to South Africa’s Cederberg Mountains, located north of Cape Town. The name ‘Rooibos’ is derived from the Afrikaans word for ‘red bush’, a likely reference to the reddish-brown colour that the plant takes on upon oxidisation during production. Known for its distinct earthy flavours and sweet, fruity notes, Rooibos is particularly low in tannins, making for a light, well-rounded drink.
Rich in antioxidants, Rooibos is also a source of polyphenols such as the compound aspalathin, which may help to protect against free radical damage, and contribute to weight loss by boosting fat metabolism.
Rooibos Blueberry tea should be prepared using freshly boiled water - preferably filtered tap or bottled spring water. Use one teaspoon of loose-leaf tea for every 8 oz (230 ml) of water and allow the covered leaves to steep for at least 5 minutes at temperatures between 90 °C (194 °F) and 95 °C (203 °F) Because Rooibos is low in tannins, there is little risk of your drink becoming bitter if you do steep the leaves for longer than 5 minutes. Use a tea strainer when preparing in order to capture the small particles and ensure a very smooth, clean drink.
