Indulge in the warm and cozy embrace of the newest addition to our Fall line up, Pumpkin Praline. This Rooibos and Honeybush blend combines the rich essence of pumpkin with a hint of nutmeg, the sweetness of caramel, and a touch of cinnamon to create delightful mix of autumn flavors in every sip. Slightly nutty and wonderfully rich, this one tastes just like Fall.
Perfect for those cool, crisp evenings when you crave something both savory and sweet.
Pumpkin Praline is our first caffeine free Fall tea addition with a warm, delicious blend of rooibos, pumpkin, cinnamon, caramel, and nutmeg.
Grown only in South Africa, Rooibos is a botanical rich in antioxidants, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. It is naturally sweet with notes of honey and caramel and contains no caffeine. Honeybush is a close relative of Rooibos and shares many of the same characteristics. It is also grown exclusively in South Africa, naturally sweet, high in antioxidants and caffeine free. Similar in flavor to Rooibos, Honeybush is named for its yellow flowers which smell like honey. Rooibos and Honeybush are often blended together to create a rich, yet balanced base for many herbal infusions.
Both are brewed like tea, but neither Rooibos nor Honeybush actually contain any portion of the tea plant (Camellia Sinensis), which is why they are most accurately categorized as botanicals, herbal infusions or tisanes. Rooibos is often mistakenly referred to as “red tea” due to the fact that the leaves turn bright red when oxidized.
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. Honeybush has followed a similar pattern, becoming widely available in the United States in the mid to late 1990s.
Rooibos is becoming increasingly popular internationally 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.
Honeybush is thought to help treat coughs and to minimize the symptoms of menopause.
We recommend steeping Pumpkin Praline for 5 minutes at 208°. Because neither Rooibos nor Honeybush contain any portion of the tea plant, they are less prone to bitterness and, therefore, difficult to over-steep.
Available for a limited time only, this tea goes back into the vault shortly after Thanksgiving.
