What is Shrub Tea?

If you are looking for something caffeine free, healthy, and playful, we’ve got a shrub tea for you! Rooibos is a naturally decaffeinate tea from the Cederberg mountains of South Africa. It is  also known as the “red bush” and harvested manually during summer. It is rich in minerals and antioxidants.

The “cousin” to rooibos is honeybush, which is found in a couple of our shrub tea blends. The name, honeybush, comes from the honey-like smell of the flowers. It tastes similar to rooibos, but with a sweeter, more smooth flavor.

Another “shrub” we showcare is Lapacho, which doesn’t comes from a shrub. Lapacho is the inner bark from the Pau d’ Arco tree, found in Central and South America. It is said to have healing properties; we just like the taste. If it makes us feel better, then aren’t we the lucky ones? 

The last “shrub we showcase is Lapacho, which isn’t really a shrub. Lapacho is the inner bark from the Pau d’ Arco tree, found in Central and South America. It is said to have healing properties; we just like the taste. If it makes us feel better, then aren’t we the lucky ones?
