IDEAS HINTS AND TIPS

  • Replace the liquid in stews and casseroles with Rooibos. It adds a rich aroma and it also tenderizes the meat.
  • Add Rooibos to sauces and soups for extra flavor, or use it to dissolve stock cubes.
  • Store Rooibos tea bags or leaves in an airtight container. Rooibos can be kept for a long period without losing its color or taste.
  • Keep prepared Rooibos in the fridge for later use.

 

  • Iced Tea: Make delicious iced tea by mixing chilled Rooibos with sugar and lemon juice, or blending it with your favorite fruit juice.
  • Red Irish: End a meal with Red Irish instead of Irish coffee by substituting the hot coffee with hot Rooibos.
  • Dessert: Give your family a healthy, mouth-watering dessert by baking apples in Rooibos instead of water. Place the apples in a baking dish, pour Rooibos around them and spoon it over the apples occasionally while baking.
  • Dried Fruit: Soak dried fruit overnight in Rooibos. No additional sugar will be needed when cooking.
  • Marmalade: Cook fruit in Rooibos to make a delicious, colorful marmalade.
  • Marinades & Tenderizers: Use Rooibos as a base in marinades for meat and chicken, as it is a natural meat tenderizer.
  • Stews & Casseroles: Replace the liquid in stews and casseroles with Rooibos. It not only adds a rich flavor, but also tenderizes the meat.
  • Sauces: Add Rooibos to sauces for extra flavor, and use it to dissolve stock cubes.
