WINTER PALACE MARZIPAN ROOIBOS (HERBAL TEA - Rooibos means RED BUSH in Afrikaans) Country of Origin: South Africa Region: Cederberg Shipping Port: Cape Town Grade: Choice Grade #1 Altitude: 1500-2500 feet above sea level Manufacture Type: Fermentation turns the leaves from green to deep red and gives a slightly sweet note. Cup Characteristics: What a tea! Premium Moroccan almonds give the German inspired marzipan a magnificent boost. Rooibos and marzipan were meant for each other. Infusion: Reddish orange to full color (depends on brewing time and quantity used) Ingredients: Luxury Rooibos, Almond pieces, Natural dried papaya, Natural flavors. Information: So what exactly does a tisane that blends South African Rooibos with Moroccan almonds and marzipan have to do with an 18th century Russian palace? Great question. It’s a long and convoluted tale. St. Petersburg’s Winter Palace was commissioned by Catherine the Great and built between 1754 and 1762. As it goes, the architect that was charged with designing the opulent structure, with its 1,786 doors and 1,945 windows, was an Italian named Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli. Rastrelli, knowing nothing of Russia or Catherine the Great, naturally wanted to bring the comforts of home with him to his new city. For the architect this included the sweet taste of Marzipan, or in Italian Marzipane, made famous by the artisans of Palermo who molded the confection to resemble fresh fruit. In particular, he loved a special version made with Moroccan almonds, imported to Sicily via Tunisia. In his traveling chests he stockpiled enough to last him through his first season. Unbeknownst to Rastrelli his patron, Catherine the Great, was also a lover of Marzipan. However, owing to her German descent, she was born Sophie Friederike Auguste von Anhalt-Zerbst, it was typically the Germanic version of the sweet treat she craved. Unbeknownst to Rastrelli, Catherine the Great was also a great lover of the men-folk. One day while casually enjoying a papaya shaped piece of Marzipan after lunch, Catherine spotted him in the hall. It was love at first sight. Rastrelli offered her some of his dessert, Catherine acquiesced and offered him…well…we can’t go there. In the end, the Winter Palace was completed a little behind schedule perhaps, but at least the architect had a smile on his face. As in the immortal words of Jack Palance: “Believe it or not”. To celebrate the fortuitous nature of this historical meeting we’ve blended this fantastic herbal tea with Rooibos, almond pieces, dried papaya and natural flavors. Enjoy the almond-like flavors of love. 200 ml (about 7 ounces) of brewed Rooibos contains the following nutrients: Nutrient Function in the Body per 200 ml Iron (Fe) Essential for transport of oxygen in the blood 0.07 mg Potassium (K) Assists certain metabolic functions 7.12 mg Calcium (Ca) Necessary for strong teeth and bones 1.09 mg Copper (Cu) Assists certain metabolic processes 0.07 mg Zinc (Zn) Necessary for normal growth and development of healthy skin 0.04 mg Magnesium (Mg) Assists a healthy nervous system and other metabolic processes 1.57 mg Fluoride (F) Necessary for strong teeth and bones 0.22 mg Manganese (Mn) Assists metabolic processes and bone growth and development 0.04 mg Sodium (Na) Necessary for fluid and acid-base balance 6.16 mg Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil.

WHITE SWISS TRUFFLE ROOIBOS (HERBAL TEA – Rooibos means RED BUSH in Afrikaans) Country of Origin: South Africa Region: Cedarberg Shipping Port: Cape Town Grade: Choice Grade #1 Altitude: 1500 – 2500 feet above sea level Manufacture Type: Fermentation turns the leaves from green to deep red and gives a slightly sweet note. Cup Characteristics: Exquisite sweet chocolate bakiness explodes at the first sip and tidbits of mint meander throughout. A full ‘ahhh’ finish! Infusion: Bright, highlighted with Caramel, Cacao bean and White chocolate pieces Ingredients: Luxury rooibos, Caramel pieces, Calendula petals, Cacao bean pieces, White chocolate pieces, Natural flavors. Information: According to a renowned Swiss chocolate expert, chocolate and especially truffles are better than sex. Why? Because the word “commitment” doesn’t scare people off when you’re talking about truffles. And the Swiss should know. They’ve been wooing people the world over with their chocolate confections since 1697. In that year, Heinrich Escher, the mayor of Zurich drank some hot chocolate while on a business trip to Brussels and became infatuated with its delicious flavor immediately. From that day forward the histories of chocolate and Switzerland became inextricably linked. Over the next 200 years or so, chocolate making in Switzerland thrived as a small-scale cottage industry with small companies experimenting with all sorts of ways of producing chocolate. In 1819 that all changed when a man named Francois-Louis Cailler built Switzerland’s first chocolate making factory and set the stage for the world famous industry we have all fallen in love with. As a way of saying thank you to the fine chocolate makers of Switzerland, we decided to concoct an herbal tea that reflects the flavor of one of their finest delicacies - the white truffle. White chocolate, which forms the base of white truffles, derives its milky color from the presence of up to 3 times the amount of cocoa butter found in traditional dark chocolates. The cocoa butter gives the truffles a very smooth, mild chocolatey taste which is also evident in the flavor this blend. Like all Rooibos teas, this one is caffeine free, high in minerals, and has a very unique full-bodied profile. The character of the white chocolate is perfectly balanced by the subtleties of the Rooibos and the hint of mint that was added to help round out the blend. The result is in our humble estimation, one of the tastiest Rooibos blends on the market. It is also in our humble estimation, like chocolate itself, better than sex. Why? There’s no need to fake anything when enjoying a cup of this tea - any sounds of pleasure you feel inclined to emit will be all natural! Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Even though milk and a dash of sugar help enhance the flavor character on this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea ‘straight-up’ Iced tea-brewing method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water]. Please note that this tea may tend to go cloudy or ‘milky’ when poured over ice; a perfectly normal characteristic of some high quality black teas and nothing to worry about!

TUSCANY PEAR (HERBAL TEA - Rooibos means RED BUSH in Afrikaans) Country of Origin: South Africa Region: Cederberg Shipping Port: Cape Town Grade: Choice Grade #1 Altitude: 1500-2500 feet above sea level Manufacture Type: Fermentation turns the leaves from green to deep red and gives a slightly sweet note. Cup Characteristics: Sweet ripe pear notes marry well with premium rooibos. Memories of lazing in the Tuscan sun. Infusion: Reddish orange to full color (depends on brewing time and quantity used) Ingredients: Rooibos, Apple pieces, Natural flavors. Information: Pizza… Spaghetti… Olive oil… Espresso… these are the foods we normally associate with Italy and Italian cuisine. But did you know that Italy consumes more pears than any other European nation? Or that Italy is the world’s second largest grower of pears after China? It’s true. Italians have been enjoying pears since the days of ancient Rome. The fruit holds a special place in their hearts not only because of their delicious flavor on their own but because they are wonderful to cook with and pair with other foods. Nowhere is this truer than in the breathtakingly beautiful villages of Tuscany. Tuscan chefs have created many recipes over the years, and routinely whip up such delicacies as pears poached in white wine, sliced pears with fresh Parmesan cheese or spicy pear pastries. The slightly tart, highly adaptable flavor of Italian pears is perfectly complimented by their high nutrient content. The fruit is high in fiber, vitamin c, potassium and folic acid. Well, in the spirit of adaptability we’ve decided to try something new and match the sweet profile of pear with the mellow character of a South African Rooibos. We believe that what we have created evokes the feeling of a relaxing afternoon under the Tuscan sun – perhaps sitting under a pear tree. The cup is fresh, with herbaceous notes and lively hints of pear – delizioso! 200 ml (about 7 ounces) of brewed Rooibos contains the following nutrients: Nutrient Function in the Body per 200 ml Iron (Fe) Essential for transport of oxygen in the blood 0.07 mg Potassium (K) Assists certain metabolic functions 7.12 mg Calcium (Ca) Necessary for strong teeth and bones 1.09 mg Copper (Cu) Assists certain metabolic processes 0.07 mg Zinc (Zn) Necessary for normal growth and development of healthy skin 0.04 mg Magnesium (Mg) Assists a healthy nervous system and other metabolic processes 1.57 mg Fluoride (F) Necessary for strong teeth and bones 0.22 mg Manganese (Mn) Assists metabolic processes and bone growth and development 0.04 mg Sodium (Na) Necessary for fluid and acid-base balance 6.16 mg Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil.

Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the Rooibos into the serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste.

PECAN PIE ROOIBOS (HERBAL TEA - Rooibos means RED BUSH in Afrikaans) Country of Origin: South Africa Region: Cederberg Shipping Port: Cape Town Grade: Choice Grade #1 Altitude: 1500-2500 feet above sea level Manufacture Type: Fermentation turns the leaves from green to deep red and gives a slightly sweet note. Cup Characteristics: Sweet and nutty highlight meld with rooibos. Notes of caramel create a dessert-like finish. Infusion: Reddish orange to full color (depends on brewing time and quantity used) Ingredients: Luxury rooibos, Caramel pieces, Nut oil, Natural flavors. Information: Pecan Pie is a rich custard pie made with fresh Pecans and sweet corn syrup. In a word it is magnificent. Or should we say magnifique? New Orleans legend has it that Pecan pie was created by the French shortly after settling in the New World. Apparently, the settlers were introduced to the nuts by the early Native American inhabitants of Louisiana. The story unfortunately, although very romantic and told often by the inhabitants of the Big Easy, has a few holes. For one, food historians have been unable to track down a recipe for Pecan Pie older than 1925. For two, corn syrup, considered an essential component of the traditional recipe, was not developed until the 1880’s – and the French arrived more than 100 years before that! One thing is known for certain – Pecan Pie is a sweet nutty treat that over the years has become a staple of Southern cuisine. Although no one has concocted any legends about the origin of Pecan Pie Rooibos tea, we’re still certain this blend will get people talking. The mellow character of caffeine free Rooibos, Aspalathus Linearis, provides a stunning herbal base for the mélange of fresh nutty pecan flavor and sweet caramel, topped off with a hint of cream. Wonderful as an after dinner treat, this tea is like having Pecan Pie without the calories. Leave enough room for seconds! 200 ml (about 7 ounces) of brewed Rooibos contains the following nutrients: Nutrient Function in the Body per 200 ml Iron (Fe) Essential for transport of oxygen in the blood 0.07 mg Potassium (K) Assists certain metabolic functions 7.12 mg Calcium (Ca) Necessary for strong teeth and bones 1.09 mg Copper (Cu) Assists certain metabolic processes 0.07 mg Zinc (Zn) Necessary for normal growth and development of healthy skin 0.04 mg Magnesium (Mg) Assists a healthy nervous system and other metabolic processes 1.57 mg Fluoride (F) Necessary for strong teeth and bones 0.22 mg Manganese (Mn) Assists metabolic processes and bone growth and development 0.04 mg Sodium (Na) Necessary for fluid and acid-base balance 6.16 mg Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil.
