Have you ever tasted a Georgia peach? Super sweet, tangy and juicy, the peach is Georgia’s best-loved export and one of summer’s tastiest treats. The natural sweetness of the fruit makes it a perfect addition to our South African Rooibos. And why is that? Because the inherent slight sweetness of Rooibos (Latin: Aspalathus linearis) is perfectly complimented by that of the peach and creates an herbal tea that is packed with subtle nuances and a complex flavor profile.
Like all herbal teas, this Rooibos based blend is caffeine free. But did you know that Rooibos has many other health benefits as well? South African studies conducted over the years have determined that Rooibos tea is high in iron, potassium, zinc, manganese and sodium. As such, any Rooibos based drink is not only great for sipping morning, noon, and night, but for the actively health conscious out there, it also makes a fantastic post workout refresher. But even if your most strenuous exercise is quietly sitting in a low-slung porch swing in the midday sun, the benefits of drinking this tea are still positive.
Brew yourself a pot, enjoy it hot, and savor the aromas of fresh peaches. It also goes without saying that this tea, poured over ice is simply fantastic. Try some today - as you recline, listening to the ice cubes tinkling in your glass, the condensation cooling your hand, we’re sure you’ll find the peachy flavor in your cup to be at once soothing, relaxing, and revitalizing.
