What is Rooibos tea?
Rooibos is a shrub unique to South Africa. It is also known as Red Tea because of its colour, however, it should not be confused with Pu Erh Red Tea (Camellia sinensis). Rooibos tea does not contain theine and can therefore be taken by anyone. It is a tea that does not become bitter if it is steeped for too long.
Cloves – Cloves are the flowers bud of the tree Syzygium aromaticum native to the Maluku Islands (Indonesia). Normally, the harvest of these buds is done manually. Often associated with dental health, the Chinese may have used cloves for 400 years BC. According to cultural records, chewing this spice was quite common on the part of the subjects when requested by the Emperor. This was because it helped to reduce bad breath.
Known for their intense smell and characteristic taste, the Chinese have also used cloves to combat toothache. This spice is rich in antiseptic and aphrodisiac properties which may promote the treatment of indigestion, body discomfort and diarrhoea. Today, cloves are widely grown in tropical and subtropical countries such as Madagascar, Mozambique, and India. However, Tanzania is the world's largest producer of this spice.
Cinnamon – This is a woody, warm-tasting spice originating in Sri Lanka, deep in the south of the Asian continent. It was through maritime and land discoveries that cinnamon spread to various regions of the world. Cinnamon is a classic spice known for the rapid transmission of positive energies through its intense aroma when used in the preparation of teas and culinary dishes. Cinnamon can be used either stick or ground, with no loss of flavour between them. When used sustainably, it can take up to 20 years for cinnamon to develop a number of its oils. Its spicy flavour is close to that of cloves.
Cinnamon must have been recorded for the first time in Ancient Egypt. It is important to point out that the cinnamon stick should not be ingested, but applied as a whole as an aromatic ingredient. Know that the lighter the bark of the cinnamon stick, the better its quality. Scientifically called “Cinnamomum zeylacium”, cinnamon comes from the trunk of the cinnamon tree. Between the 14th and 16th centuries, there was a range of spices that would have been used as a trade currency for various purposes.

I’m a first time customer to this store and bought a few different teas. I liked all of them, and my favorite is this roibos tea. It has a rich taste and flavour, I enjoy it best before going to sleep (and whenever I like to treat myself with a good cup of tea). Also, I sent this tea as a gift to my friends, would like to share my discovery.
