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.

We are a small independent operation, and as such we operate inside of our retail space, the Phoenix Pearl Tea Tavern in Red Lodge, MT. We bag teas for orders while also serving in-store customers, including making cups of tea, making food, and selling bulk and retail purchases. Our employees work as quickly as they can, but we don't have a warehouse to operate out of with dedicated employees. As such, orders may take anywhere from 1-5 business days to ship. Thank you for understanding.
One smell and you're hooked. Rich in aroma and flavor. Steep and add the tea to make rice or cous cous...amazing!
