Organic Rooibos Red Tea | Tea Lovers Australia | Shop now

In South Africa, Rooibos tea is one of the most popular beverages. Rooibos tea is native to South Africa and is made from the Aspalathus linearis plant, which grows in a mountainous region north of Cape York that receives significant rainfall. Rooibos tea has many wonderful and unique health benefits. It is naturally caffeine-free and contains powerful antioxidants such as aspalathin and quercetin, which have been linked to cancer fighting, heart health, and bone health benefits. Rooibos tea is also high in vitamins and minerals like calcium, manganese, magnesium, and iron, giving it great relaxation properties and earning it the nickname "relaxation tea." Rooibos tea is made by fermenting the leaves of the shrub 'Aspalathus linearis' – the leaves turn a red-brown colour during the fermentation process. Green rooibos tea, a non-fermented variety with a grassier flavour and a higher price tag, is also available. Unflavoured rooibos tea has a distinct woody earthy sweetness and is popular as a black tea substitute, commonly served with milk and sugar. Tea lovers Australia sells a wide range of delicious Rooibos Tea. Tea Lovers sells high grade Organic Rooibos Tea (unflavoured) as well as many delicious flavoured Rooibos Tea varieties. Tea Lovers popular flavoured Rooibos tea includes; Rooibos Blueberry Cheesecake, Rooibos Strawberries & Cream, Rooibos Chocolate & Truffle, Rooibos Orange Spiced Chai, Rooibos Dragonfruit & Ginger, Rooibos Chai, Rooibos Cream (caramel & vanilla) and many more delicious flavours to choose from. Rooibos tea, like most herbal teas, should be brewed at 95°C (just off the boil) for 1-3 minutes, depending on desired strength. Because the leaves of rooibos tea are so small, it is always best to use a fine micro-mesh infuser for brewing, as the leaves can seep through larger brewing holes. A general brewing guideline is 1 heaped teaspoon of loose rooibos tea per 250ml of water. Rooibos tea can be served with or without milk, sweetened with honey or sugar, and flavoured with lemon, depending on your preferences. Unflavoured rooibos tea can also be served chilled over ice, sugared if desired, and garnished with mint and fresh lemon slices. Rooibos Raspberry, Rooibos Blueberry Cheesecake, Rooibos Lemon, Rooibos Mango, and Rooibos Strawberries & Cream are just a few of the great flavoured rooibos varieties available at Tea Lovers. Because these rooibos blends are already naturally flavoured with dried fruits, vanilla, and fruit essences, no additional sweeteners are required; simply serve warm or chilled over ice with fresh cut fruits. In the European café scene, a new 'Red Rooibos Latte' trend has recently emerged. To make a red tea latte, baristas use coffee espresso machines to extract a shot of strong rooibos tea, which is then topped with freshly steamed milk.

Buy Herbal Infusions Online - TeaLovers

You would be forgiven for thinking herbal infusions are some kind of supplement or medical practice. A herbal infusion, in the sense of talking about ‘tea’, is simply what we call a herbal tea. A herbal infusion is the process of steeping herbs in hot water until the water absorbs the essential oils, nutrients and flavours from the herb. Herbal infusions may consist of roots, leaves, shoots or flower petals and are primarily drunk for health and medicinal reasons, as well as for taste and pleasure. A herbal infusion tea can consist of a single herb (such as chamomile or peppermint), or can be a blend of herbs that have been carefully selected for medicinal purpose or simply great taste. Examples of herbal infusion blends include Peppermint & Liquorice herbal tea or Lemongrass & Ginger herbal tea. Herbal Infusions can also be blended with dried fruits and spices to make them taste great, as well as adding further health value to the tea. Herbal teas have been consumed by human civilizations for centuries - For the purpose of treating illness, preserving youth and maintaining optimal health. Although we may refer to herbal infusions as herbal ‘teas’, herbal infusions do not actually contain ‘tea’ (no camellia senesis leaf). The great thing about herbal infusion teas is that they contain no caffeine, are generally high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and can be enjoyed at any time of the day. Examples of herbal infusions that have been used for centuries for medicinal purpose include chamomile, peppermint, liquorice root, rosemary, ginger, raspberry leaf, linden flower, turmeric, echinacea, olive leaf and many more. Chamomile has been used for thousands of years to help reduce inflammation, treat stomach pain, aid sleep and promote calmness and muscle relaxation. Liquorice root tea has been traditionally used for treating stomach pain and cough. Tea Lovers online tea store sells a great range of Organic single herbal Infusions and herbal blends. Popular products include; Organic Chamomile, Organic Peppermint, Organic Lemongrass & Ginger, Hibiscus Tea, Organic Lemon Myrtle, Organic Ginger Root, Organic Raspberry Leaves, Organic Butterfly Blue Pea Flower Tea and many more.

Russian Caravan Tea a Traditionally Aromatic Blend

Russian Caravan tea is a popular flavoured black tea well known all across the world. The discovery and creation of this flavoured black tea is accidental and steeped in history. Russian Caravan tea is a dark and malty black tea that has been infused with the flavour of smoke. Some describe Russian Caravan tea to have flavour notes of tobacco, chocolate, firewood, charcoal and smoke. It is the smoky and earthy flavour of this tea that gives it a unique complexity, a comforting flavour that so many have come to enjoy. The origin and creation of what we now know as Russian Caravan tea has quite a story steeped in history. Similar to the Chinese legend of how a Buddhist monk first discovered tea when tea leaves fell into a pot of boiling water - Russian caravan tea also has its own accidental discovery. Along the Sino-Russian trade route in the 1600’s where goods were carted from Imperial China through Mongolia to Russia, there were mile-long camel caravans loaded with tea that made their journeys. A ‘camel caravan’ is a series of camels carrying passengers and goods on a regular or semi-regular service between points. The caravans would travel along cold, snow-covered roads, and would frequently stop for rests around campfires. With the tea loaded on camels sitting quite close to the fires, the tea leaves absorbed the smoke flavour. When the tea eventually arrived in Russia, tea drinkers noticed the new smoky character and quite enjoyed taste – Leading to the official creation and demand for Russian Caravan Tea. Coincidently after the discovery of Russian Caravan tea in Russia, in China during the Qing Dynasty a new smoky black tea called Lapsang Souchong was also discovered. ‘Lapsang Souchong’ meaning a black tea smoked over pine wood fire. To this day both Russian Caravan tea and Lapsang Souchong tea are well enjoyed all across the world. Russian Caravan tea is one of Tea Lovers best selling classic black teas. Other classic black teas include English Breakfast Superior, fruity French Earl Grey, Earl Grey Supreme bergamot, Irish Breakfast Superior, Madam Grey citrus & Prince of Wales oriental blend. Tea Lovers also produces its own Australian version of caravan tea called ‘Australian Bushfire Caravan’. Australian Bushfire Caravan is a black tea blend, consisting of Australian grown Daintree black tea blended with a smoky China black tea base - to create a mildly smoky black tea that is reminiscent of billy tea enjoyed over the campfire.
