WHAT IS TEA?
Tea is a shrub that grows in the humid tropics and subtropics. Whether green, black, white, yellow, or blue, all teas come from the same plant: Camellia Sinensis. The exception is Roobois red tea, which is from a different bush.
Whether it is to get healthy, stay well, lose weight or many other conditions, we have the right tea for you.
Green tea has its legendary origins in China and is a popular beverage in most of Asia. It has a distinctly refreshing taste. It is made from unfermented leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant and contains a high concentration of antioxidants. Green tea has claims to aid in weight loss as well as many other health benefits. Do not over steep. Over steeping can result in a bitter taste. Recommended steeping time: 2 minutes
White tea comes from the buds and leaves of the Chinese Camellia sinensis plant. The leaves and buds are allowed to wither in natural sunlight before they are lightly processed to prevent oxidation or further tea processing.
The name “white tea” derives from the fine silvery-white hairs on the unopened buds of the tea plant, which gives the plant a whitish appearance. The beverage itself is not white or colourless but pale yellow.
Recommended steeping time: 4 – 5 minutes.
Recommended steeping time: 3 – 10 minutes

Benefits of Oolong Tea
Grown in the West Cape Province of South Africa, Roobois is caffeine free and full of antioxidants. Also, known as a Red Bush tea, it comes from a flowering shrub and not the Camellia Sinensis plant. It’s chopped, bruised, and left to ferment. It is then placed in the South African sun where it changes from green to dark red. It is great for tea drinkers who are caffeine sensitive and also great for kids. Regularly brewed once. The great thing about Roobois is that the longer it brews the stronger the flavour gets! Taste will never get bitter! Recommended steeping time: 4 – 6 minutes.
While all tea comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant, black tea is heavily fermented and is more oxidized than other varieties of tea, brewing a stronger flavor. It is regularly only steeped once. Do not over steep. Over steeping can result in a bitter taste. Recommended steeping time: 2 – 3 minutes.
