How you drink your Rooibos Tea is a very personal choice. Generally you would fill your pot or tea ball with 1 1/2 to 2 heaped teaspoons of looseleaf per cup. Pour in the boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes. Strain the leaves or whip out your tea ball, sit back and enjoy your cuppa. Note: for a stronger brew, add an extra teaspoon to your pot or tea ball. Rooibos is unlike traditional black or green tea, steeping Rooibos longer will create a stronger, more flavorful beverage; it won't turn bitter. It's naturally sweet and tastes delicious hot or cold with honey and a slice of lemon. Some like to add a splash of milk, but we prefer it natural. Rooibos Tea can also be used for a delicious cold brew, sun tea or iced tea.
