What's the deal?
This lush, indulgent blend of rooibos and full-bodied Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar is a wonderful tonic. Its soothing, sweet and 'beany' vanilla fragrance is ideal to awaken the spirit. Rooibos is actually a legume: a bean plant called Aspalathus linearis. The leaves and stems are harvested during the summer and then left to ?ferment?, a process in which the leaves shift from a yellow appearance to the characteristic red colour and then dried. What starts with an unassuming bush in the plains of South Africa, ends with a rich and smooth flavour enhanced by the natural essential oil of the vanilla bean. Gently hydrating and low in caffeine, it has long been valued for its natural goodness.
