Organic Rooibos/Red Bush "Tea" (Aspalathus linoaris)
The "tea" Rooibos or Red Bush originates from the Western Cape of South Africa and is enjoyed not only by South Africans but also by people around the globe.
Rooibos is processed from the leaf of the Aspalathus linoaris and while the liquor looks and tastes very much like tea (Camellia sinensis), this herb is 100% caffeine free and contains vital minerals and Vitamin C. Rooibos has been called the "miracle tea".
Rooibos is more than just a deliciously refreshing beverage, it is also a healthy versatile drink, with a rich amber color, and a pure natural aroma. The ease of preparation of Rooibos and the fact that it can be enjoyed hot or cold makes it the perfect choice as a refreshing drink for any occasion. A hot, soothing cup of Rooibos is completely pure and natural, containing no additives, preservatives or colorants of any kind.
Organic Lemon Myrtle (Backhousia Citriodora)
The Latin name is derived from: Backhausia for the British botanist James Backhouse who discovered the plant in the 1830's and Citriodora - neo Latin lemon scented.
Lemon Myrtle is a rare plant indigenous to the rainforest of Queensland Australia. The plant contains a natural essential oil (terpenoid aloehyds) citral and has an intensive refreshing very lemony smell and taste. This healthy herb is caffeine free and non-acidic.

|Rooibos is wonderful all on its own but this blend is quite delightful. I received it as a sample with my order and was pleasantly surprised. The lemon smoothly highlights the rooibos tea.|

|This tea is perfect for any time of year. It can be served over ice with some fruit slices, or hot with or without honey. It is also such a boost when ever you are feeling a little sick.|
|Delicious served hot with honey or cold over ice|
|Nice fresh lemony flavor with the rooibos adding depth and complexity.
I reserve 5-star ratings for actual camellia sinensis, so I give this 4 stars, my maximum for herbals.|
