Organic Rooibos Red Tea | Tea Lovers Australia | Shop now

In South Africa, Rooibos tea is one of the most popular beverages. Rooibos tea is native to South Africa and is made from the Aspalathus linearis plant, which grows in a mountainous region north of Cape York that receives significant rainfall. Rooibos tea has many wonderful and unique health benefits. It is naturally caffeine-free and contains powerful antioxidants such as aspalathin and quercetin, which have been linked to cancer fighting, heart health, and bone health benefits. Rooibos tea is also high in vitamins and minerals like calcium, manganese, magnesium, and iron, giving it great relaxation properties and earning it the nickname "relaxation tea." 


Rooibos tea is made by fermenting the leaves of the shrub 'Aspalathus linearis' – the leaves turn a red-brown colour during the fermentation process. Green rooibos tea, a non-fermented variety with a grassier flavour and a higher price tag, is also available. Unflavoured rooibos tea has a distinct woody earthy sweetness and is popular as a black tea substitute, commonly served with milk and sugar. 


Tea lovers Australia sells a wide range of delicious Rooibos Tea. Tea Lovers sells high grade Organic Rooibos Tea (unflavoured) as well as many delicious flavoured Rooibos Tea varieties. Tea Lovers popular flavoured Rooibos tea includes; Rooibos Blueberry Cheesecake, Rooibos Strawberries & Cream, Rooibos Chocolate & Truffle, Rooibos Orange Spiced Chai, Rooibos Dragonfruit & Ginger, Rooibos Chai, Rooibos Cream (caramel & vanilla) and many more delicious flavours to choose from. 

Rooibos tea, like most herbal teas, should be brewed at 95°C (just off the boil) for 1-3 minutes, depending on desired strength. Because the leaves of rooibos tea are so small, it is always best to use a fine micro-mesh infuser for brewing, as the leaves can seep through larger brewing holes. A general brewing guideline is 1 heaped teaspoon of loose rooibos tea per 250ml of water. Rooibos tea can be served with or without milk, sweetened with honey or sugar, and flavoured with lemon, depending on your preferences. Unflavoured rooibos tea can also be served chilled over ice, sugared if desired, and garnished with mint and fresh lemon slices. 


Rooibos Raspberry, Rooibos Blueberry Cheesecake, Rooibos Lemon, Rooibos Mango, and Rooibos Strawberries & Cream are just a few of the great flavoured rooibos varieties available at Tea Lovers. Because these rooibos blends are already naturally flavoured with dried fruits, vanilla, and fruit essences, no additional sweeteners are required; simply serve warm or chilled over ice with fresh cut fruits. 


In the European café scene, a new 'Red Rooibos Latte' trend has recently emerged. To make a red tea latte, baristas use coffee espresso machines to extract a shot of strong rooibos tea, which is then topped with freshly steamed milk.
