What does Rooibos tea taste like?
Rooibos tea has a slightly nutty taste with a natural sweetness that is gentle and smooth. Roobios tea should be brewed for 4-7 minutes before sipping. Unlike green or black tea, Rooibos will not turn bitter with a longer steep. In fact, a longer steep creates a fuller-bodied flavor releasing a warm woody aroma. With a longer brew, more antioxidants are also released.
Rooibos is also a natural when it comes to blending. It pairs beautifully with a variety of sweet ingredients, including citrus fruit, berries, vanilla, chocolate, apple, warming spices, and caramel.
