So great for me

I like Rooibos tea, but rarely I brew a whole pot. So this is perfect.

Amazing product!

About the tea capsules, I am very happy, because although I have a capsule machine, I only use that for guests. Now I can use my machine for me! I have made myself a big cup, and sent water several times through the machine and the result is a delicious Rooibos tea all the time.

Love this! 😍

Great idea for the tea drinkers.

Love at first sight:-))

All our family LOVE them:-)))

Best coffee substitute

I was practically addicted to coffee in my formative years and started drinking rooibos tea as a way to cut down on my bad habit. Plus, I wanted the health benefits that came with rooibos. When I discovered red espresso, I was blown away by the taste and how it offers the same strong flavour of coffee, without any bitterness or sour notes.
