Bush Fire - Blood Orange Rooibos
Rooibos, the South African herb known for its bite, its lack of caffeine, and its similarities to black tea, derives its name from the Dutch Rooibosch, meaning 'Red Bush.' It was named as such due to the brilliant red color of the dried leaf the natives drank religiously. We have lit a bush fire under this beloved herb with an incredible blast of crisp blood orange, a citrus variety with hearty amounts of anthocyanin. Warm and deliciously biting hot, refreshing and brisk iced.
