Organic Peach Rooibos

compostable-tea-packaging-1.jpg

This Fair Trade Certified organic loose leaf infusion combines rooibos leaves (pronounced ROY-bus) with the essential oils of a peach, adding a subtle peach flavor atop the already apricot-like rooibos. Rooibos is an herb native to the beautiful Cederberg region of South Africa and contains no caffeine.

Ingredients: organic South African rooibos and natural peach flavor

What are Flavored Teas?

Organic Rooibos with Peach Flavor

Our delicious flavored teas use the same top-quality organic tea that we offer in our unflavored varieties, but are blended with pieces of real fruit, spices, flowers, and 100% natural flavors. When blending our teas, our goal is to create a cup that balances the taste of the tea with the flavors of the additional ingredients so that neither one overpowers. All of the natural flavors we use are either extracts taken directly from the botanical ingredient, or extracted using 100% GMO-free grain alcohol as a solvent. You can rest assured that none of the flavors used in our blends are synthetically or artificially derived, and do not use artificial preservatives.

Steeping Instructions

At Arbor Teas, we believe tea should be brewed to suit your personal taste. We’re happy to make recommendations to get you started, but don’t hesitate to experiment! When brewing your tea, your main considerations are tea quantity, water temperature, and steeping time. We recommend herbal and rooibos teas to be steeped for 5 to 7 minutes in water heated to a full rolling boil. For the best flavor, use fresh water whenever possible, and avoid overboiling. If you want a stronger brew, just use more tea. And don’t forget to re-steep your tea leaves to get the most out of your leaf!

Health Benefits

rooibos-herbal-health-1.jpg

Rooibos (aka “red tea”) boasts an array of beneficial health properties. Like true tea, rooibos has a high concentration of antioxidants, and is the only known source of aspalathin, a particularly potent antioxidant. Green rooibos tends to have even higher levels of antioxidants than red rooibos, but both have enough to measurably raise the levels of antioxidants in the blood. Rooibos is also rich in flavonoids; compounds likely to have anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory, anticarcinogenic and antimicrobial benefits. Lastly, rooibos is low in tannins, making it less bitter than true tea.

    iced or hot

    Posted by Lisa Young on 3rd Nov 2019

    I love this tea iced or hot. I add a little maple sugar for an extra treat. It's my favorite herbal tea to sip with friends at Argus Farm Stop!

    Peachy

    Posted by Ching-shih Yang on 1st May 2019

    We had two different peach rooibos teas, one from a different company. We definitely preferred this one because the peach taste was much more natural. The different flavors of this tea seemed to belong together.

    Great Iced Tea

    Posted by Cat on 22nd Apr 2018

    This tea is super light and summery. Great as an iced tea with a squeeze of lemon!

    Hits the Spot!!!

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Oct 2016

    Right now I'm on a low carbohydrate diet, so whole fruits are a no-no...and I happen to love peaches. However, this tea gives enough of a hint of the delicious fruit that it "hits the spot" enough to take away the craving. Will definitely be getting more in the future!

    I will be buying more

    Posted by Whitney M on 1st Mar 2014

    I recently discovered peach rooibos tea, but the other brand I was drinking was out of stock. I came across this site and ordered the sampler and glad I did! This tea is a new favorite of mine. I add a tiny bit of honey or maple syrup sometimes, but it has a great flavor without. Most teas are at least somewhat bitter but this wasn't at all!

    Very good, if you like flavored teas.

    Posted by W on 21st Sep 2011

    This roobis is very well flavored. The vanilla is just pronounced enough to complement the peach (there are real pieces of dehydrated peach!). I've been drinking it in the morning in an attempt to defray my caffeine consumption. If half leaves were and option, I would have given this tea 3.5. :)

    A great caffeine-free choice

    Posted by Kathryn Johnson on 22nd Feb 2011

    I usually don't get rooibos teas because I find they have a funny aftertaste but I ordered a sample of this on a lark... I'm glad I did! The peach flavor is definitely present and not fake tasting at all really refreshing. And the rooibos makes a lovely base. I look forward to warmer weather so I can try this iced!
