Key Lime Ginger


Organic/Fair Trade
A lively Rooibos blend with notes of key lime and crisp ginger. This fresh, bold infusion makes a delicious iced tea.

We love sweetening any blend containing ginger with Savannah Bee Company’s tupelo honey. It is the perfect match for ginger’s bold, zesty notes.

Unlike most Rooibos blends, which contain red Rooibos, our Key Lime Ginger is made with green Rooibos.  Green Rooibos is the un-oxidized version of the Rooibos plant.  Once oxidized, Rooibos turns red; whereas, un-oxidized, it remains green.  Unlike red Rooibos, which is rather sweet, green Rooibos is somewhat tangy and has sharp, slightly earthy, notes.

Grown only in South Africa, Rooibos is a botanical rich in antioxidants, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. Although it is brewed like tea, Rooibos does not actually contain any portion of the tea plant and is often mistakenly referred to as “red tea”.

Like all Rooibos, Key Lime Ginger is naturally caffeine free.

South Africans have been drinking Rooibos for centuries, often with milk and sugar, but it is only recently that Rooibos has been consumed so vigorously outside of Africa.  Rooibos is becoming increasingly popular in the United States due to its mild flavor and purported health benefits.  Not only does it contain a high concentration of antioxidants, but several new scientific studies have linked Rooibos to the relief of allergy symptoms and to helping aid digestion.

 Industry leaders within South Africa are currently lobbying their government for Rooibos to be given geographical indication status.  Geographical indication status would protect and limit the use of the name Rooibos to that which is specifically harvested in South Africa’s Western Cape province (which is currently the only place in the world where Rooibos is grown). Other products that enjoy the distinction of geographical indication status are Champagne, Port and Roquefort cheese.

Pair Keylime Ginger with spicy ethnic foods like Thai or Ethiopian cuisines.

We recommend steeping Key Lime Ginger for 5 minutes at 208°.

Ingredients: Green rooibos, ginger, lemongrass, lemon myrtle, licorice root, and natural essential oils of lime and tangerine.
