This amazing blend of Rooibos and fresh strawberries was inspired by a visit to the pick-your-own berry farm outside of Capetown in South Africa. Although the country is usually associated with vineyards and grapes, South Africa actually has numerous pick-your-own farms scattered throughout the countryside. On this particular visit a few years ago, a Master Taster decided that he had to have strawberries, and he had to have them right then and there, (Tea Masters can be an eccentric bunch). His host drove him to the Polkadraai Farm Stall, known locally for its amazing crop of strawberries, known as aarbei in Afrikaans. After a day toiling in the hot South African sun, he naturally asked for something to cool him down. You can imagine his surprise when instead of something cool, like lemonade, he was handed a steaming cup of Rooibos tea. His host informed him that the hot drink would raise his internal temperature which would in turn lower his external temperature and make him feel quite comfortable. The Master Taster discovered that the technique worked! He also discovered that the mellow flavor of the Rooibos went particularly well with the bushel of strawberries they had collected.
Brew yourself a pot of Strawberry Tingle Rooibos and discover what he discovered that day at the farm – Rooibos and strawberry create a harmonious match that will truly delight your tastebuds! Gesondheid! Amandla! (The two ways to say cheers in South Africa!) Enjoy.
