This full-bodied rooibos infusion with a beautiful combination of orange and cinnamon. A cold brew will produce a smooth drink and bring out orange and rooibos notes, while a hot brew will yield a cinnamony drink with a hint of orange. Either method yields an aromatic drink with a surprising sweetness and fresh warm flavour, making this is our most popular flavour.
Rooibos is a South African drink made from the red bush plant. With its dark red liquor, sweetness and hints of spice, it's not just a delicious drink. Rooibos is laden with minerals like manganese, magnesium, zinc, calcium and iron. Caffeine free and rich in antioxidants, Rooibos can't be overbrewed and doesn't become astringent when steeped for long periods.
