A Dose of PositiviTEA — Rooibos Teas RSS


Our Durango guests love traditional teas as much as they love they love our more complex blends! Shortly after becoming a part of the Durango community, we wanted to make a tea gift box just for our Colorado guests! Read about why we chose the teas for our Colorado Gift Box! YERBA MATÉ - We chose this South American tea, because Durango's locals love their Mate! They are educated about the traditional practices and health benefits of drinking this high caffeinated tea! VALLEY ORCHARD MEDLEY - This tea was very popular iced in the summer! We also loved that it had the word "valley," in the name. Colorado is full of valleys, mountains, rivers and all types of landscapes. WHITE PEACH - Coloradans love their peaches!! Peach...

Although my absolute favorite teas are the Pu Erh Teas, when I am wanting a caffeine free option, my go-to is a Rooibos Tea, commonly known as the “red tea!" These teas are great anytime throughout the day, hot or iced, and have a wide range of health benefits associated with them! Unlike White, Green and Black teas, Rooibos tea does not come from the typical Camellia Sinensis plant. Instead, rooibos is actually from the South African bush known as Aspalathus Linearis, which is a member of the legume family (beans, peas, peanuts, etc.).
