Tisane (Herbal Tea)

 

Tisane or French for ‘Herbal’ tea. Since Ancient Egypt and historic China, herbal teas have been enjoyed for centuries, often drunk for its health properties. Cleansing, soothing and caffeine free no tea chest would be complete without a tisane or two. Try our famous single estate Rooibos or our award winning Honeybush.

 

  1. Organic Green Rooibos

    Organic Green Rooibos

    Tisane (Herbal Tea)

    From the Wiedouw estate in the Cederberg Mountains of South Africa, where it is organically grown, this rare long-cut green rooibos herbal tea is hand-picked and cured naturally in the sun. With a fresh natural vegetal taste, being only partly processed much like any normal green tea, this green Rooibos contains a higher level of antioxidants and minerals than standard Rooibos. Which arguably means this naturally caffeine free, organic and rainforest alliance certified tea, could arguably be the healthiest tea in the world!
