Last month, one of our dedicated customers wrote me a note asking my advice on non-caffeinated teas. Turns out, she had been told to eliminate caffeine and she described herself as a "die-hard tea fanatic - strong blacks with lots of milk". Her preferred teas were Yunnan Gold, Assams and our recent Panda Blend. Having never strayed into the world of non-caffeinated teas, she needed suggestions. She knew a bit about herbals but not about Rooibos. I love letters like this and could understand her predicament. Going from strong Yunnans and Assams to non-caffeinated can be a shock! My suggestions were as follows:
- ROOIBOS AFRIKANA (My #1 choice - strong, lovely, takes milk, hint of citrus/vanilla)
- JOHANNESBURG - Rooibos with Caramel and Chocolate
- SERENGETI - Green Rooibos, Honeybush, Pomegranate
- CRUSH ON YOU - Rooibos with Passionfruit & Grapefruit ...
