All New Cold Brew Rooibos Tea

carmien-tea-cold-brew-range

This season we’re welcoming a new, refreshing approach to rooibos tea: cold brew. Cold Brew teas are specially developed to be used in cold water. Using cold water instead of hot water extracts more of the flavours, but slower, over time. The result? A smooth, less bitter, cleaner tasting tea.

What is cold brew rooibos tea made of?

The range consists of three delicious flavours, each with a fragrant rooibos base. Rooibos tea has many great health properties, including:

  • natural anti-oxidants which help to prevent cancer & combating free radical damage in cells;
  • helps to alleviate allergies such as asthma, hay-fever and eczema;
  • it has anti-spasmodic qualities;
  • it replaces essential minerals, iron, potassium, zinc & sodium;
  • it’s soothing on the nervous system.

The three variations are made of a variety of natural ingredients to add to the distinct taste and colour.

Apricot Blossom

  • Forest berry blend: contains Vitamin C and sweetens the blend.
  • Apple: a natural anti-oxidant & contains fibre.
  • Hibiscus flowers: a great anti-inflammatory, helps decrease spasms and is very high in anti-oxidants.
  • Rosehip shells: contains Vitamin C and has a calming effect.
  • Apricot flavour: adds a sweet apricot flavour.
  • Stevia: adds natural sweetness.

Apple Mint

  • Green rooibos: similar to regular rooibos, green rooibos also contains an antioxidant “nothofagin” that controls blood sugar levels to prevent diabetes.
  • Spearmint: a tasty addition to foods and drink, in part because it has a long and documented history of helping to relieve indigestion, gas and gastrointestinal discomfort. The dried leaves are often combined with other carminative herbs to help ease digestion, reduce nausea and help relieve congestion.
  • Lemongrass: added as a flavouring, it doubles as an antioxidant and relieves spasm and digestion. It also has a calming effect and is an anti-inflammatory.
  • Apple: a natural anti-oxidant & contains fibre.
  • Stevia: adds natural sweetness.

Cranberry Hibiscus

  • Forest Berry Blend: contains Vitamin C and sweetens the blend.
  • Apple: a natural anti-oxidant & contains fibre.
  • Elderberries & Blueberries: a source of Vitamin C and an anti-oxidant.
  • Hibiscus flowers: a great anti-inflammatory, helps decrease spasms and is very high in anti-oxidants.
  • Rosehip shells: contains Vitamin C and has a calming effect.
  • Acai berry powder: a superfood powder that contains an extremely dense concentration of antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients.
  • Cranberry flavour: adds a sweet cranberry flavour.
  • Stevia: adds natural sweetness.
