Can we tempt you to try
something a bit different today?

What is it? Lemon Rooibos

Our Mr Smooth of the tea menu!

Zesty Lemon Rooibos is a herbal tea (meaning it's caffeine free) with key elements being the finest Rooibos and lemon. Invigorating yet sweet, Zesty Lemon Rooibos has the silkiness of red bush and the citrus kick of lemons.

Rooibos comes from the Aspalathus linearis plant growing in South Africa so it isn't actually a tea. It's probably called red bush tea on account of its striking colour when brewed - see the rich red when it pours!

Rooibos (pronounced 'Roy-ee-boss') helps you chill - it's reputed to help with insomnia.  Health wise, being low in tannins means it's one for asthma and eczema sufferers, and contains the rare antioxidant aspalathin boosting insulin secretion to ward off Diabetes type II! 

Great hot or iced, its flavour marries particularly well with nuts. Why not add a slice of  our gluten and dairy-free Orange & Almond and  Apple & Almond Cakes to accompany it?
