Brewing

The secret to a really good cup of tea, apart from quality leaves, lies in the quality of the water.

Wherever possible use filtered or bottled water and never over boil water as this results in flat tasting tea.

Use 1tsp of Organic Rooibos per person, pour boiling water over and allow to infuse for between 3 - 5 minutes depending on your taste.

Leaves are suitable for multiple infusions, again depending on your taste.
