 (11 reviews)

type: herbal

origin: south africa rooibos

caffeine: no-caffeine

price level: $$$$

Green Rooibos is harvested from the same South African plant as the traditional red rooibos but is processed differently. Whereas the red rooibos leaves are bruised and oxidized, the Green Rooibos leaves are specially treated to prevent oxidation, leaving them closer to their natural state. The resulting brew is lighter bodied, less citric-piney than red rooibos and delivers a woody-grassy cup with natural sweetness and fruit notes. This natural sweetness and low tannin content ensures a smooth, never bitter brew that requires little, if any, sweetener. Like red rooibos it is also naturally caffeine free and great plain or flavored, hot or iced for anytime enjoyment. Steep at 212°F for 5 minutes

      This tea is slightly lemony and very mild. I much prefer green rooibos to red rooibos, but I'm still not that excited by green rooibos. I drank it cold because I thought it tasted nicer that way.

      Green rooibos is much lighter and sweeter than its red counterpart with a distinct fruitiness that can't be beat. It's also one of the cheapest herbals on the site outside of a few like pepper- and spearmint, chamomile, etc. It's a great tea at a great value!

      Very nice herbal tisane. Brews up to a very smooth cup with a sweet taste. Great alone or as a base for other herbs, tea or flavorings.

      Mild and woody, it's a solid cup to enjoy later at night. It's good as a base for blends and mixes. While nothing special, it's still enjoyable.

      This tea was a little too grassy for my tastes, but I did appreciate the natural sweetness.

      Not much of a rooibos tea person, however the rooibos green tea is fairly good! If you've found you dont much like rooibos I'd suggest you give this a try instead!

      This is an absolutely intriguing drink, bringing out the best qualities that you’d expect of both green and Rooibos teas

      This tea has a good balance of earthiness, nuttiness, and some sweetness. Very nice for a quiet morning or night.

      This is a great afternoon tea. It's sweet and a bit earthy. It'd even be great for after dinner since it's caffeine free.
