Organic Double Red Rooibos Tea
Red rooibos tea is rich in flavor, naturally caffeine-free and packs a powerful punch of antioxidants. Its health benefits compare to green tea and rooibos is touted as being even higher in antioxidants. The Republic of Tea offers this even stronger “Double Red” variety that combines finely ground rooibos with the tea leaves for an ultimate antioxidant boost – ground rooibos contains more than double the antioxidants compared to the leaf form.
We especially love the Double Red because the flavor remains mild with a light sweetness, leaving out the need to add sweeteners. The tea bags are unbleached without strings or tags and are certified Organic, Fair Trade ™, and Kosher by the Orthodox Union. These airtight recyclable tins of 36 are available online at Republic of Tea. In case you missed our earlier post about rooibos, you can find the health benefits in our superfoods sections.
Organic Double Green Matcha Tea
In this double strength green, the Republic of Tea has combined organic green tea leaves with organic Japanese matcha powder to create a light, more mild form of green tea. We love this version because it is light and grassy, lacking the bitterness that is typical of most steeped greens. It also includes a dose of matcha without the hassle of whisking the powder with water or milk. Matcha comes from gyokuro, a green tea that lives under shade for three weeks before its dried leaves are ground into a fine powder resembling talc. The matcha powder creates a murkiness and accumulates at the bottom of the cup so be careful not to pour this part out!
These airtight recyclable tins of 50 are great value at $13.00, coming out to only $0.26 per tea bag. Available online at Republic of Tea. The tea bags are unbleached without strings or tags and are Certified Organic by Quality Assurance International and Certified Kosher.
