Rooibos originates from the Western Cape of South Africa. Processed from the leaf of the Aspalathus linoaris, this herbal "tea" is 100% caffeine free, rich in vital minerals and Vitamin C and contains a high level of SOD (super oxide dismatase), an agent that fights free radicals. It is said to contain more antioxidants than any other beverage. Rooibos Earl Grey is a deliciously refreshing beverage, rich in amber color, with the enticing taste and aroma of bergamot oil.
Earl Grey teas, traditionally, were blends comprised of varying black teas with Bergamot oil added to them. Today, any tea (green, white, herbal) that is sprayed with Bergamot oil is known as Earl Grey (such as our Emerald Green Earl Grey, Rooibos Earl Grey, …).
Bergamot oil comes from the rind of the bergamot orange, which grows on the citrus tree Citrus bergamia. The oil expressed from the rind is used, in addition to making Earl Grey tea blends, quite frequently in the cosmetic industry. Bergamot oil can be found in soaps, lotions, oils and perfumes and has been said to help alleviate depression as well as used as a digestive aid and used to help skin irregularities (such as psoriasis).
Earl Grey tea is a favorite with bakers in many culinary recipes. It goes especially well with cakes, cookies, confections and any recipe with chocolate!
