Blender’s Notes Pineapple Upside Down Cake Rooibos Tea:
Our Red Rooibos is a great alternative to a standard tea because it has no caffeine. Many customers often use this as a wonderful desert tea option with low to no calories. It has such a soft and creamy taste and can be sweetened and it will aid in digestion. This blend has the great rich taste of Red Rooibos with two types of Pineapple – Freeze Dried and Dried. Having the taste of double pineapple makes this a great summer – pina colada – treat. Along with the creamy taste of the Rooibos Tea we added in a bit of Vanilla Essential oil and large flakes of Coconut. Add a bit of Rum….yum,yum,yum!

Rooibos is a very unique type of tea…and it actually isn’t a part of the Camellia Sinensis plant at all. Rooibos comes from a shrub Aspalathus linearis that is a part of the legume family (e.g. peas, beans and peanuts) and grows to about four feet high and looks like a sagebrush. Since the 1700’s, Rooibos has been grown primarily from the mountainous Cederberg region of South Africa’s Western Cape. This tea will have slightly red color and will have a slightly sweet taste.
Most of the harvest for Rooibos is done during the Summer months. The two types of Rooibos are Green and Red. The Green Rooibos is simply a plucked leaf that is dried and packaged. This has a more mild taste and a beautiful green color. The most popular is Red Rooibos (its namesake) and is plucked, fermented and oxidized giving it its rich red color. This version is a very creamy and sweeter taste. However, both versions of Rooibos have their own set of antioxidants and offer many health benefits.
Pu erh is also very forgiving when steeping, you can steep the leaves with boiling water for 10 minutes or several hours because it will not get bitter. The flavor of Rooibos will get richer and creamier with longer steep times.
