Espresso Ground Rooibos Tea

Rooibos is the national drink of South Africa, harvested from the indigenous shrub. It is naturally caffeine-free and full of antioxidants, making an excellent beverage choice for all people of all ages. It is traditionally consumed like black tea, infused in boiling water and topped with additions of your choice, milk, sugar, honey, lemon, etc. The flavour is rich, woodsy, nutty, slightly sweet with citrus notes. A complex and delicious brew, great for any time of day. Espresso cut rooibos can be put through an espresso machine for a shot of red espresso. The resulting flavour is similar to regularly infused rooibos, but stronger and with more depth. It forms a rich crema and looks exactly like a shot of espresso, only red! You can use the shot as you would espresso: consume as-is or add steaming milk for a latte. It's a great option for after a meal or for those who are sensitive to caffeine.

Great concept but doesn’t actually work in an espresso machine, at least for me.  It doesn’t pack down, and my shots just ran through it with no back pressure.  I tried a pre-infusion as well.  Better just as a regular tea!  The quality of the rooibos itself is excellent.



Amazing! Love rooibos tea, so good in a latte
