About this tea

Tea Story

Rooibos (pronounced “Roy-bus”) grows only in the Cedarberg mountain region of South Africa. The soft, new green growth is harvested by hand once a year, then bruised between rollers to trigger the oxidation process, not unlike black tea production. Spread on an open court and covered with sheets, the leaves then go through the “sweat,” developing their deep red color and characteristic flavor. We have gone to some lengths to find not only the most flavorful rooibos on the market, but one that is organically grown as well. With its saffron and vanilla aromas, full body and faint maltiness, it’s a surprisingly versatile cup: take it hot, iced, sweetened or plain.

Brewing Tips

Start with a preheated cup or teapot.
Use 1 teabag for each cup of water.
Bring the water to a rolling boil; steep tea for 3 to 5 minutes, depending on the strength desired.

I'm hooked. Some of the best tea I have ever had. A wonderful flavor that's great hot and amazing as iced. It's definitely one of my favorites and I will be keeping this in my stash.

Love it! I am probably one of the few in the Seattle area that doesn't drink coffee...but I love tea and the first time I had this at Peets was all it took!! I order it all the time, and like the description will make it iced, sweetened, non sweetened (it has so much flavor, you really do not need to add any sweetener) and just a hot flavorful cuppa tea.

I've tried a few rooibos blends from other stores before, and they were okay, but they weren't great. They were often rather weak flavored. Peet's variety of rooibos was the first type I really enjoyed this kind of tea. It has a really, really nice grassy/wheaty flavor to it, which I really like.

I've tried many, many rooibos teas (most notably Peet'', Republic of Tea, Numi, Rishi, Yogi) and Peet's is hands-down my favorite; at a distant second isthe Republic of Tea Cedarberg Organic. I am less partial to the addition of chamomile, rose, and citrus in my rooibos tea. This tea fits the bill if you are looking for a tea rich in flavor, or one that goes very well with milk. The bonus is that it is organic and made with unbleached tea bags. Now if only I could get this in a cute loose-leaf tea tin. I have this rooibos shipped to me now that I live on the East Coast.

This is truly teriffic--mild, flavorful, and fully satisfying. I have been getting a variety with subtle chocolate and mint, and will try yours with the hope that is just as good.

Suprisingly smooth and velvety. And it's true... the scent of vanilla and saffron is well received when you take your first sip with a satisfying malty dept without the astringency. Caffeine free and organically grown, this is my choice for an afternoon tea.

Extremely surprising herbal tea! Very smooth with an earthy depth. Has hints of savory spices, roots, and toasted almonds or nuts. Tastes great hot or iced. A heavy enough tea for those who enjoy black teas but want no caffeine. A great addition to an already wonderful herbal selection!
