SUNDAY SIPPINGS: AFRICAN GREEN

Green rooibos is a delicious herbal tea with a light and slightly sweet and mellow flavor. Rooibos is a shrub that grows in South Africa. It’s naturally decaffeinated, which makes it perfect for sipping throughout the day. It’s one of my favorite herbs to use when blending herbal teas. Not surprisingly, we use it in one of our in-house blends; it’s called African Green.

This morning I am enjoy a nice cup of of this delicate blend. I find it’s a perfect way to start the morning. Made of green rooibos, lemon balm and peppermint, it exudes a calm and bright cheery vibe. There’s something about the calmness and lightness of the cup that sets the tone for the day and I can’t get enough of it.

Lemon balm is well known as a stress reliever. It may help with anxiety while keeping our brains sharp. It has a slight lemon flavor which provides a bright essence while drinking. It’s truly one of a kind!

Peppermint is always trending, and for good reason! It has definitely become most of the well known herbs, as well as a common flavor in tons of food and drink recipes. Peppermint also may improve energy levels and improve concentration, which compliments lemon balm’s calm vibes very well.

African Green is a popular choice at our coffee shop. I recommend pouring it over ice and enjoying it on a summer morning. It truly is lovely and has such an uplifting aroma! If you haven’t already, give it a try and let me know what you think.
