|Rooibos comes from the surroundings of the Cederberg in South Africa. Rooibos means 'red forest' and comes from the plant Aspalathus linearis, which belongs to the family of butterflies. The leaves of the plant are picked and stamped and then laid out to dry in the sun. Only in the last phase of the drying process does fermented Rooibos get its reddish-brown colour. This tea is a ruby red Rooibos with a slightly sweet, pure taste. Rooibos tea does not contain caffeine (theine) and therefore never gets a bitter taste.
|This breakfast blend consists mostly of rich Assam tea and has a full and very powerful flavor. Highly recommended for the lover of a tea with a spicy and malty (a term derived from the beer brewers) character. Although it is sometimes claimed otherwise, the blackening of the tea leaves is not a fermentation process but an oxidation process. The name Irish was chosen because the Irish have a special preference for very strong blends. This is mainly found in Irish whiskies. To smoothen the strong taste, the Irish often add milk to the tea.|
|Assam is the largest and oldest tea province in India. Due to the opium war with China, the English were no longer able to buy Chinese tea. The alternative was Assam, India, which is approximately at the same altitude as Yunnan in China. Partly because of the rich clay soil next to the river Brahmaputra, Assam tea is known for its full and malty taste and bright dark color. Unlike tea from Darjeeling or Nilgiri, Assam tea is grown on lowlands up to a maximum height of 230 meters.|
|Green tea is produced by treating the young leaves of the tea plant with steam immediately after harvesting. This inactivates the enzymes that cause oxidation of the polyphenols (in particular the enzyme phenoloxidase), leaving the amount of polyphenols intact. This means that the colour of the leaves also remains green. The addition of Roman chamomile and strawberry slices to the green tea creates a fresh, spicy and fruity aroma and makes this green tea sparkle. The name therefore refers to the sparkling sparkling wine from the French region of Champagne.|
|The green tea China Gunpowder (also known as Zucha or Pearl Tea) has an aroma that is somewhat softer than 'normal' green tea. The tea leaves are slowly dried in rotating drums.

|Sencha is Japan's most popular tea and contains about 80 percent of the tea produced in Japan. Sencha is used without rolling the tea leaves. The word "sencha" in Japanese means "roasted tea".

This Sencha Pumpkin is a delicious green tea, full of pieces of pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, pineapple, carrot, marigold and berries, which gives a creamy mouthfeel.|
|This Rooibos tea blend is not fermented, so it is called 'green Rooibos'. This tea is therefore not a blend of Rooibos tea and Green tea. Green Rooibos tea has a softer taste than the fermented, brown-red Rooibos tea. By adding dried lemon and lemongrass, this tea gets a fresh taste, but still retains its softness. Vanilla has been added to give the blend a deliciously creamy aftertaste. A beautiful taste combination that you should have tasted once!|
