Description: If ever a tea was good for the soul, this is it. Why? Well, let’s examine the reasons. The blend is created using the all-natural flavors of rose and cinnamon.
Ok, roses…let’s see. Years ago, noted American botanist and scientist Luther Burbank was quoted as saying “Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful. They are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul.”
Well, roses are perhaps the world‟s best-loved flower so…it looks like we have our first soul-affirming reason.
Probably the most important reason that this tea is good for the soul is that fact that it is blended using a South African Rooibos.
Rooibos, grown in the mountainous Cederberg district of South Africa is truly one of the most refreshing and life affirming
beverages out there. Packed full of nutrients, you can literally feel the goodness filling your body. On top of all this goodness
Delish produces a deliciously light cup with sweet floral notes and mellow herbal undertones. Brew a pot today, find a friend to share it with and bask in about as much goodness as you can handle.
Hot Tea Method: Bring fresh cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 200 – 260mL of fluid volume in the teapot.
Pour boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Add milk and sugar to taste.
Iced tea brewing method ( Pitcher) (to make 1 litre): Place 6 slightly heaping teaspoons into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Using fresh cold water, boil and pour 1¼ cups/315ml into the pot. Steep for 5 minutes.
Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves.
Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste.
A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.
Iced tea brewing method (Individual Serving): Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon into a teapot for each serving required. Using fresh cold water, boil and pour 170-200ml per serving into the pot. Cover and let steep for 5 minutes.
Add hot tea to a 375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the leaves. Not all of the tea will fit, allowing for approximately an additional ½ serving. Sweeten and/or add lemon to taste.
