Warming spiced rooibos tea

May 24, 2017 | Drinks | 0 comments

Consumed for centuries in South Africa, rooibos tea is created through fermenting the leaves of the shrub, Aspalathus linearis.

Rooibos tea is caffeine free, which makes it a great alternative to black or green teas.  It is packed full of antioxidants and has been found to hold cardiovascular benefits too.

With the added anti-inflammatory effects of ginger and digestive benefits of cardamom, it makes quite the cup of tea!



Serves 1

  • 1 bag rooibos tea
  • 1cm piece fresh ginger, sliced
  • 1 cardamom pod, crushed (just so that it opens)
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Brown rice milk/nut milk


  1. Combine rooibos teabag, sliced fresh ginger and a crushed cardamom pod in a teapot.
  2. Add boiling water, allow to brew for 3-5 mins, then strain into mug.
  3. Add a sweetener of choice (I often use half a teaspoon of honey) and brown rice or nut milk.
