Le Marche Spice Rooibos Tea
Click to enlarge image(s)
Like the spicy heat of cinnamon? People have been enjoying it throughout the world for millennia. Interestingly however, the spice was originally appreciated more for its sweet scent than its flavor. Biblical references to cinnamon indicate that it was used as an ingredient in the preparation of the anointing oils favored by Moses. In ancient Rome, mourners used cinnamon to mask the smell of funeral pyres – in fact in 65 AD Emperor Nero burned a year’s supply on the pyre of his wife Poppaea. By the Middle Ages Europeans had come to appreciate the way it tasted and cinnamon found its place on the tabletops of wealthier households throughout the continent. Suffice it to say, the history of cinnamon has many chapters.We’ve decided to write the next chapter in the history of the spice by creating Le Marché Spice Rooibos. Starting with a top quality Cederberg Rooibos, we’ve blended in some spicy cinnamon for a mouth tingling zip. Next, we’ve balanced out the wonderful cinnamon notes by adding of hibiscus, almond for a slightly bitter note, apple for added body and subtle hints of rosehip. Like all Rooibos blends, Le Marché Spice is caffeine free and can be enjoyed at any time of day. Try it steaming hot or poured over ice for a summer treat. We’re sure you’ll appreciate the flavor of this one as much as we do. Taste the history
