What our registered dietician has to say: "Rooibos tea is naturally caffeine-free and is a wonderful source of antioxidants which can help to reduce risk of diseases such as heart disease and cancer. The most nutritious, antioxidant-rich component of rooibos tea, however is the actual leaves. Drinking rooibos tea in the traditional way filters out the leaves and therefore only small amounts of antioxidants actually enter the hot water. The red espresso® Ground Rooibos is made from 100% rooibos tea leaves which allows you to really get all of the health benefits of this amazing tea by consuming the whole leaves in powdered form. The red espresso® Ground Rooibos can be used to make a variety of café-style beverages, such as cappuccinos, lattes or espressos and can even be used as an ingredient in desserts and smoothies."

      Best Cozy Beverage Ever!

      I gave up caffeine 4 years ago as it gives me terrible migraines, and this is the best hot beverage replacement I have found since. I’m an avid tea drinker, but this rooibos espresso is the perfect mix between the taste of tea and the ritual process of a latte. Both making and drinking it makes me feel so cozy. I love that it’s as versatile as espresso, but is still caffeine free. And the crema is spectacular.

      Great Product

      The oatmilk red lattes are wonderful, and I enjoy all those antioxidants too.

      Just regular rooibos

      Nothing different than the loose leaf rooibos I already had. Doesn't build up pressure or do anything different in the espresso machine. Doesn't have enough contact time in machine, and too much fines to use with mesh steeper
