Preparing Rooibos

Rooibos is technically not tea but it is prepared and consumed in a similar way. At The Snooty Fox, we use two level teaspoons of the leaves per eight ounces of water. With rooibos, a little extra leaf is far more preferable than too little. Using boiling water and your teaware of choice, steep your rooibos for 4-5 minutes. Cool and taste. Let it steep a bit more. Wonderfully so, rooibos does not get bitter as it steeps; rather, it gets thicker and richer. Give it a try!

More About Rooibos

Rooibos is a shrub-like plant that is native to the mountainous areas of the Western Cape province of sSouth Africa. The rooibos plant is in fact a member of the legume family and as such, is to be considered within the realm of herbal “teas” or tisanes. It contains no caffeine. The needle-like rooibos leaves are oxidized in a fashion similar to that of tea; this process produces rooibos’ signature red appearance and deepens the flavor. Flavor-wise, rooibos is malty, toasty, slightly-sweet, and mellow, with a smooth mouthfeel. You may notice a very subtle tobacco note as well.
