Rooibos Key West Tea. This healthy and very tasty herbal mix you will find green rooibos, mango, papaya bits, orange peel, rose petals, and mango. Passion fruit and papaya flavors will make your taste buds dance.

The Rooibos or the African Red-bush tea is what we are talking about here. The tea possesses a sweet and nutty flavour and is normally red in color. The tea unlike the black and green tea is prepared from the leaves of the Aspalathus linearis plant that is grown excessively in the South African highlands. The traditional variety of the tea is prepared by oxidation and in recent times, a non-oxidised variety is also available in markets known as the green Rooibos Tea. The recent food markets have also introduced Rooibos tea that is flavoured with mint, chocolate or chamomile.
These teas are a rich source of anti-oxidants and Vitamin C. Due to its high mineral contents, they are almost considered as nutritional supplements. A single standard cup of Rooibos is said to contain considerable quantities of Zinc, Manganese, Magnesium, Copper, Iron, Potassium, Calcium, Fluoride and Alpha-hydroxy in it.

Description

Even, rolled, pellet shaped leaf with smooth, nutty flavor. Organic Pinhead Gunpowder Green Loose Leaf Tea. blended with green rooibos, mango, papaya bits, orange peel, rose petals, and mango.
Passion fruit and papaya flavors will make your taste buds dance.

Superior quality gunpowder tea with a full-bodied cup and smooth taste. Gunpowder tea originated in
the Zhejiang province of China and its production dates back to the Tang dynasty. It gets its name from its leaves which are rolled into tiny round balls resembling gunpowder. Its leaves are withered, steamed, rolled and then dried. The rolling protects the leaves from physical damage and retains its natural flavor and aroma for long period of
time. The leaves are then selected for their quality, size and style; small, tightly rolled leaf pellets, about the size of a pinhead, mark high quality.
