Commercial Description

African Green Bush is made with the same plant as the famous African Rooibos or Red Bush. After harvesting, Green Rooibos is not oxidized like Red Bush. The leaves and stems remain green giving the infusion a bright orange color with a unique earthy flavor and a sweet finish. Caffeine-free Green Rooibos is lighter bodied than Red Bush and is said to contain high concentrations of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

I really like this! It's astonishingly different from the other green Rooibos I've tried, from Upton. This one has a bit of red leaf/stem mixed in and brews a bright orange color.

I recommend a very long steeping time; after 3 minutes the aroma hasn't fully developed. The aroma is fresh, light, and clean, with a bit of a pleasant seafood-like quality to it, also somewhat like grass or straw. Fruity, but in a subdued way. Less earthy than red rooibos, and with less sourness. An outstanding herbal tea!
