INFORMATION: In Paris, raspberry jam is most often found spread over butter on a sliced baguette or baked inside a croissant. The delicately flavored Rooibos blend we offer here was developed to invoke the mellow flavor of this French treat.
Besides being delicious, this herbal tea is also incredibly good for you. Raspberries contain ellegaic acid, a substance in the family of tannins, a phytonutrient, and are subsequently considered by some nutritionists to be a good source of antioxidants. You'll notice upon opening the packet that we've included a generous portion of dried raspberry pieces to ensure that the goodness of the fruit passes on to the tea. Rooibos itself is also an incredibly nutritious natural delight. The tea is produced in the Cederberg region of South Africa and contains a host of healthy qualities, many of which you'll find detailed below.
HOT BREWING METHOD: Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
