About Rooibos Raja Chai

Tea Type : Herbal Tea

Tea Forté’s Rooibos Raja Chai is an exceptional herbal tisane bringing together a symphony of flavors from India and Africa. Featuring cinnamon, cardamom, pink peppercorn, and other spices complementing the smooth sweetness of rooibos tea leaves, this unique blend incorporates pieces of apple to round out its distinctive taste.

Earthy and piquant, this special caffeine-free blend evokes a grounded sense of calm to all who drink it. Its savory profile is subtle and slightly more peppery and dry than many rooibos blends, making it a perfect cold-weather counterpart to its sweeter summer cousins. Hailing from the Western Cape province of South Africa, rooibos tea (loosely pronounced “roy-boss”) is made from a plant of the same name. Rooibos is commonly referred to as “bush tea” in Britain, drawn from the Afrikaans word rooibostee or rooiboshtee, which means “red bush tea.” Once infused, it takes on a rich red hue and gives off a warm, welcoming aroma.

After first making its way overseas in the early 20th century, rooibos grew from a beloved local ingredient in the Olifants River Valley to one of the most sought-after vegetable seeds in the world. Today, its herbal infusions are enjoyed on every continent.

Rooibos Raja Chai may be accompanied by milk or sugar to taste, and can also be made into a unique winter latte when prepared with warm, frothed milk. Tea purists may also enjoy it simply steeped in water without any additions, allowing the flavors to announce themselves.

      Comforting Rooibos Chai

      My tea of choice for a spicy evening red chai. Apple and spices give the Rooibos a perfect depth.

      A good chai

      This is a more subtle chai, with mellower spices. I especially like the pink peppercorns that add a unique dimension.

      Sweet and Spicy

      Rooibos has been my favorite afternoon tea for years now because it provides a gentle pick-me-up without the caffeine that will keep me awake at night. Rooibos Raja Chai is not only beautiful in the canister, but also makes a lovely reddish infusion. When I breathe in the spicy steam as I wait for it to cool a bit, l begin to relax. Then the slightly sweet flavor and stimulating spices soothe my throat as I sip, bringing me a refreshing break in my day. Next time I intend to buy the bulk bag to refill my canister for the winter!

      Two of my favorite flavors in 1. I could drink this all day!

      I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS TEA! The mellow vanilla notes from the Roobios and the spiciness of the Chai have become my favorite tea combination of all time. I am seriously in LOVE with this tea. It is delicious hot or cold. A great way to wake up in the morning or to relax with at night.

      This tea was delicious, if a bit mild for me.

      Lovely Chai

      Along with the Turmeric Tantra Chai, one of my two favorites in herbal chai. Very nice tea for every season.

      Herbal Tea?

      I'm not typically an herbal tea fan however this tea has changed all of that. It is rich in flavor and body. It is both soothing and invigorating at the same time. It is a favorite...so much so that I must have it on hand at all of the times!
