Our latest favorite is a creamy blend of naturally caffeine-free South African red rooibos, orange, and vanilla is herbal bliss!  This herbal tea combines rooibos, orange peel, hibiscus, rosehips, apples, safflowers, rose petals, vanilla, and citrus flavors.   After brewing, the naturally sweet, creamy taste and aroma is reminiscent of orange creamsicles and Orange Julius smoothies! You cannot over–steep this tea (the longer the better) and the health benefits of rooibos are numerous; it is full of antioxidants and healthy minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, and fluoride.
