Green rooibos is harvested from the same South African plant as the traditional red rooibos but is processed differently. Whereas the red rooibos leaves are bruised and oxidized, the green rooibos leaves are specially treated to prevent oxidation, leaving them closer to their natural state. The resulting brew is lighter-bodied, less citric-piney than red rooibos and delivers a woody-grassy cup with natural sweetness and fruit notes. This natural sweetness and low tannin content ensure a smooth, never bitter brew that requires little if any, sweetener. Like red rooibos, it is also naturally caffeine-free and great plain or flavored, hot or iced for anytime enjoyment.
A lovely leafy green dragon for a leafy green tea! (is rooibos made of leaves?)
Yup, 😁. From the pictures I Googled it kind of reminds me of Scottish Broom. Or if it had purple blossoms, instead of yellow, a bit like Heather.
He is so cute!
Love your beautiful leaf dragon.
Happy Tuesday 😊 good night everyone!
Good night Sara. Those cookies look yummy!
Drooling over those cookies!
Happy Tuesday. Fun tea today.
Twyla I love your photo!!!
Happy National Periodic Table of Elements Day! Chemistry was not my best subject, but it is good to know this table.
Maybe this will make the Periodic Table more fun: Tom Lehrer’s “The Elements”— https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=AcS3NOQnsQM
Paula , Love his strong finish with Aristotle's version! LOL
This is fantastic, Paula. Thanks! I'm sending it to my sons, they will love it.
Oh Paula, you beat me to it! I was just now awake enough to re-read Valerie’s note (at 4:00am, my brain wasn’t quite firing on all 4 cylinders!) and was going to take a look for this. I know it very well and it’s hilarious! My husband is a retired physical chemistry professor and he introduced me to it when we were dating a very very very long time ago. Thank you for posting the link. I never get tired of it and I never get over wondering how in the heck he ever did that. What an amazing brain!
Valerie, I never took chemistry in high school. California had some screwy curriculum ideas in the late 70s, but it does remind me of one of my favorite, silly movies. Evolution.👽👾👽
Honors Chemistry was my favorite science class my senior year :) our teacher made it fun and interesting.
Tyrell - you obviously are very bright. But a good teacher always makes a difference!
The moon was so pretty—- but I think my sky was too bright to see the comet
No moon here - clouds and chilly wind. I’ll take it IF the clouds drop some rain!
Jezabel, Thistlehopper is so cute - and such a cute name!
Honestly, I think I've fallen in love with Thistlehopper! 🥰😻🥰
I love a good rooibos blend. Especially before bedtime. Enjoy today’s cup!
Waiting to turn my new card. Then it will be off too bed.
Bambi, I hope it was one you wanted.
It was a new one I haven’t had before so that seems like a win.
Yes, Bambi, hope it was a good one. What was it?
Mine is after midnight as well, Bambi, and I hate to reset it until the next morning, though I think I will be doing just that very soon.
I may be doing so as well. It wasn’t bad when I taught until 10:15 on Monday night but now that I don’t have a late class on Monday it is getting harder.
Have a good Tuesday, tea friends!
You too A😘
Stressful day, one car died (haven't used in 3 months and it is having a hard time in cold) and one car has service light on. Can't get service for a month. Dealership is that backed up. Normally wouldn't be a big deal but work wants to do a work party end of month 80 miles away and won't take no for an answer. I love that a party during work hours is more important then actual work.
Ahhh! Any chance you could see a mechanic not at the dealership? 😟
No it voids warranty
Steffi orry to hear abut the car problems. I would let work know about the car troubles and maybe someone can pick you up. Not a good time of year to get stranded.
Or maybe they would like to pay for a reliable rental for you for that day, Steffi?
Oh dear, that sucks. Can you get AAA out to jump start the dead one? At least there would be one.
Tyrell, I’ve been enjoying your art that you’ve been posting.
I second this, I always have to zoom in because they are like photos!!! They are so detailed and beautiful 😍
I agree, Age. There have been many times I have looked at a photo of your painting, Tyrell, and do a double take. I think to myself, “I thought he was posting a painting but maybe this time it’s a photo he shot.” Not so. Very impressive talent there.
Thank you for all the support Jan, you're a sweetheart! Thank you Bambi!
Paula, I third this. His artwork is so realistic and beautiful. I want to step into it and enjoy the serenity it brings.
Well said, Mary!
Paula, fourth! Tyrell, me too. The lighting on the water on yesterday's piece was especially perfect!
I agree Paula that Tyrell's artwork is wonderful!
Thank you Paula! 😊 It's about time I start creating more, haven't been motivated this last month!
I didn’t realise it wasn’t photos until I read here - small pics are sometimes hard to distinguish. Went and viewed larger - it is amazing. Wonderful skills. Thank you for sharing.
I’m guessing that’s because of the current weather, Tyrell? Maybe you should paint a cozy little cabin in a snowy wood. I can’t paint or draw worth a darn, so I’ll just wait to see where your next inspiration leads you.
Thank you Age, Mary, Mechelle, and Janet, for your kind words! I'm glad you like them, that makes my day :)
Oh my , until you mentioned artwork I thought Tyrell was taking photographs!!! I am impressed with your artistic abilities Tyrell. Gorgeous pieces of landscape art, you are a Master artist!
Thank you very much Sue :)
I definitely have been also, Paula. You have such talent, Tyrell.
Tyrell, I too get tricked into thinking your artwork is a photo until I zoom in to see it. Amazing!

Hello tea fronds! 🫖🪴 I am reposting this earlier today to see if I can get help to solve a little problem I am having. I have been working on a new fandom and for some reason the banner won't show after it is uploaded. I don't remember having this problem before. I first uploaded it over the weekend and it wasn't working so I thought I needed to just wait for Monday. It is still showing "no band artwork". I have tried renaming the file, saving the file as jpeg & pdf, clearing the cache and re-uploading. Any ideas of why it is not showing up around the tea tin? Do you see an artwork band?https://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/blend.html?blend=207658
Chasi, I haven't done any of my own blending with Adagio so I'm not sure what band artwork is. However, there is artwork showing on the tins and bags...the same as in the link preview in your post.
Hi Chasi, on a mobile device the bands don't show, but I will check again when I go into my office later. The lid artwork is lovely! And, it sounds tasty!
Michelle, I’m on my iPhone and I can see the band art on it at 8:45am, pacific time, so apparently it’s been corrected.
Chasi, I don't see any band artwork. I bet Elizabeth knows how to fix it.
Late to the game but I see a lovely peach mint green band when I click the link.
I just looked (8:45am pacific time) ChasiTEA, and it shows now. I love the band art, and the blend sounds utterly delicious, especially for summertime. 😋
I disrupted the Queens slumber, the nerve 💜🐈⬛💜
268 days till Halloween🎃
I’m sure you’ll be forgiven. 😻🐾
I’ll bet you are right, Nancy, as long as there are treats involved!
Uh-oh. You must have gotten "the look."
Time for Greenies!!
Age, do it again and your paw may get a regal pounce 😸😹🐈⬛
Good morning, Adagians. Happy Tuesday. I'm getting ready to do my workout and wanted to stop in before things get busy. I didn't realize there was a green rooibos tea. I'm sure I must have had it in the year plus that I've been here, probably in blends. I look forward to seeing what you all think of it, considering the rather definite opinions regarding rooibos in general. 😇🤣😇🫖😇 I wonder how many different kinds of rooibos there are...maybe there's a white rooibos? Hmmmm....something to look into. God bless and have a super day.
Good morning Marlicia.
Good morning, Sue. I hope you have a wonderful day! God bless...😇🫖😇
I'm looking forward to trying today's tea later on. I need my caffeine, so I'm starting my day with Ooooh Darjeeling. It is definitely a hearty Darjeeling!
Ruth, I'll have to give Ooooh Darjeeling a try as I don't think I've ever had it. I'm not a big Darjeeling fan but from your comment it sounds like I would like it.
You will be oooohing and ahhhing Mary.
It's not a light, delicate tea 😁
Suuuch a fav!
Ruth, I love your picture today.
Thank you! ❤️
I don't have any Green Rooibos in my tea cupboard, so I'm starting the day with Golden Needle and hubby is sipping Ali Shan.
Good morning, Mary. Two of the best teas to start the day!
Good morning everyone! Have a wonderful day!🫖
And you as well, Pam.
Good aftermornoon! My non-24 rhythm is just over 180° flipped, so it's about my 2pm. So, I decided to switch to a green tea... none other than the CommuniTea collab blend: Zoinks!
Thanks for the suggestion, James. That tea blend sounds delicious, and I just added it to my wish list!
Michelle M, I love how you captured the flowers on your beautiful teaware in your amazing artwork. Just perfect.
Thank you, Mary. I'm practicing with wetter watercolors these days! I love the layering effects. I hope you have a wonderful, tea-filled Tuesday!
Good morning, I'm up early studying more for my test. I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!
You've got this, Carrie. Positive vibes headed your way.
Sending Love & Light.
Hope the studying goes well and that you do well on the test, Carrie. Some subjects are just harder than others though. Tea should make the studying go more smoothly. What are you drinking?
Sending my best for your test! I'm sure you'll ace it!
You can do it !

Good morning, Heather. What are you and Fox up to today? It looked like he was having a blast chasing the dead flowers yesterday. He's such a treasure.
I like green rooibos in blends, but by itself it’s just okay
It’s Vanna Knight, and she’s ready to spin the Wheel of Fortune for you! If you get a cork, she will pour you a glass of wine. But if you are really lucky and get a tea package, she will brew you the best cuppa tea you’ve ever had - Adagio, of course!
Glad she ditched the bankrupt panel , it would be a bummer to get neither of them! lol Thank you Jan for making me burst out into laughter first thing in the morning,
Sue, I was out in the garage looking for props for the latest photos when I saw this device. It’s sold with just the corkscrew tips welded together in a circle with the idea to place a cork on each screw and then use it on your dining table as a trivet. Did any of you already know this or did you have alternate ideas about what the heck it might be? So Janet has said before that she has some type of deciding wheel which I still can’t picture (maybe it’s an app on the computer?). Anyway, that helped me come up with this idea. Now I need to come up with some new ideas pronto. YIKES!
Good morning. Waiting to hear from my kids school. Most around us are closing due to icy roads
Tanya, stay safe and warm.
Heather, the Frenchie planter is soooo cute. Did Fox get you that for Valentine's Day? I love it!
Mary, I thought Fox looked a little jealous.
Yeah a little bit of side eye there,lol.
It was a gift from Mom this weekend. Fox isn’t to sure about it, cause he got in trouble trying to eat the flowers.
Good morning everyone! I hope you all have wonderful, tea filled days!
Good morning everyone!!!
Good morning! Generally I am ambivalent about rooibos but this is delightful 🥰
Good morning, everyone! I am SO happy to say that we have heat, we have gas, and we have water!!! 😃 I finally brushed my teeth, got a shower, had something to drink, and ate food. I am feeling sooo much better. Also hard to believe it's Tuesday. 🤣 Probably because I missed work yesterday. Anyway, looking forward to having multiple teas today I guess since I couldn't make tea without water. 😊 I hope everyone has a fantastic day! ❤️
Glad to hear things are back to normal for you! Enjoy your teas.
Thank you so much! So far, Pu-erh Poe was yum! And I ran out of milk thistle. 🤣 Guess I need to get some more of that. Brewing Green Rooibos now. 😊
Wonderful news, Cassidy!
Thank you! ❤️
Congratulations! That's got to be an amazing feeling!
Yes, it absolutely is! Thank you so much!! ❤️
Great news, Cassidy! I hope you have a wonderful tea-drinking workday!
Thank you very much! You too! 😉
That's great news! Enjoy your teas.
Thank you! I definitely am. ❤️
Yay!!!! I am so happy that your water is back and things are so much better for you both!!! :)
Thank you so much! ❤️
Yay!!! Glad your situation is getting back to normal.
Thank you so much! ❤️
Great news Cassidy!
Thank you! ❤️
Cassidy, thank goodness! I am so relieved for you. I hope everything goes smoothly from now on.
Oh, fantastic news! So glad you're back to having what you need! If you don't mind me saying, you may want to look into what your landlord's legal responsibilities were for that. I get that, sometimes, it's not worth rocking the boat with the person who provides your housing, but that's usually the kind of thing you can withhold a bit of rent over, at the very least!
I am happy for you that basic necessities are finally back!

Good morning. I'm having this tea later today, this morning I'm having Dragon's Breath. MMMMM
Jean, I love that tea and got a big tin of it. Yum!
Good morning, everyone. I love green rooibos tea and I think I've had it plain before but since there's no review it must have been in a mystery tea box. I will drink it later in the day, like many others I see. For caffeine this morning I am finishing a cup of New York City Breakfast now and then I will make: [drumroll for my own "Wheel of Fortune, Jan] Yunnan Jig!
Love the drumroll.
I love your scrapbook cover Bambi!
Good morning. I'm starting the day with mango mate/mango black tea. Have a great day everyone.
Hubby feels like he was hit by a bus with Covid and my son is home again today still hacking. I feel run down but my guess is that is because my body is fighting off these illnesses all day. No other symptoms yet though.
Hope you and everyone feels better rapidly!!!
Yuck. Praying for a quick recovery.
Sending love & healing energy.
Hope you all feel well soon!💜
I’m so sorry to hear that your hubby is having a rough time of it today, Jess, and that your son hasn’t yet been able to get rid of the cough. My experience was that the first 2-3 days were really crummy, and then it became more manageable although still miserable. I hope your husband will follow the same path.
Fingers crossed for you! I had Covid for the first time in November, and it was the same for me - I was just absolutely flattened by it, but by day three I started to feel better. Hoping the light at the end of the tunnel comes for your family just as soon!
I hope all of you recovery quickly!

Good morning! I'll save today's tea for the afternoon. I'm working late tonight, so I'm relying on caffeine to keep me going!
Today's picture has gifts from CommuniTea folk. Thank you!
G'morn~ how are ye Tea Pals doing? Enjoying PuErh vibes and will make a Green Rooibos brew concoction with Mango Powder, a bit later.
Great morning Twyla Moonbeam!!! Have a Sparkling Day and give some love to Cimi baby & Moxie Roxie White Socks for me too!
Twyla, I just noticed your Cimi Baby Cat tea is on the schedule for this Carturday!!! It looks like a delicious blend! May have to have it a little early!
Excited for Caturday!!!! BabyCat is looking forward to hearing how people enjoy her namesake blend!
Good morning Twyla! Have a marvelous day!

I mixed White Toasted Coconut and White Pear for the teapot at work today. It smells strongly of coconut, but the pear overpowers the coconut in the taste.
Sounds yummy Allyson. Did you like it?
Good morning! Today’s tea is light and enjoyable. Getting my day started with gong ting pu!
Good morning! Will drink today’s tea later - need caffeine to start the day.
Good morning! My tea for this morning is honeybush apricot
Jan - I love the wheel. I sure hope I get tea!
I think I need the wine....
Michelle, follow the advice I gave Bambi. I’m sure Vanna would be happy to accommodate you too - if the Price is Right!!!! Oh no!
Bambi, i think if you “tip” Vanna, she may be able to rig the spin for you! 😂
Good morning! Busy day for me today. I help in childcare at a church this morning with two year olds who are very busy. Afternoon at the Dentist and then this evening my first pickle ball lesson. I think I’ll wait to have today’s tea this evening as it is caffeine free. Anyone here playing pickle ball?
We had a work function trying it. Was a lot of fun - similar to tennis. Good luck.
I haven’t yet, Nancy, but I’ve heard of it. Maybe you can post a photo from your lesson tomorrow?
I haven't tried it, but I've heard great things! Hope you have fun!
Today's picture takes some explaining. I took a friend to the thrift store yesterday to get a cake pan, and I found a pan of my own: a big ol' cast iron for $4! Very excited to start using it.
Ooh, that looks like a good one! Can't wait to see what magic you cook up in there!
Red, it looks like you got a real deal! I agree with Meg that we need to see photos of what you make and the recipes you used!
Good morning! I'm finishing up my cup of green rooibos. I found it pleasant to drink with a little stevia added. I started the day with chocolate truffle because I needed some caffeine :)
Good Morning my tea friends hope you have a great day!☕️🫖🐈⬛❤️
Good Morning Age!❤️❤️❤️❤️
Good Morning Sue!🫖☕️🐈⬛❤️
Good Morning Shelly!🫖☕️🐈⬛☕️
Have a great day, Linda and Violet! 💜
Good Morning Chrissy!☕️🫖❤️🐈⬛
Happy Periodic Table Day! Like Math, Science is a major weak area for me (it just makes no sense well a lot of the time!). I am an English, Comp, and Arts kinda girl!
Good morning! The green rooibos was smooth not astringent or bitter. For someone not a gt fan, I enjoyed finishing it with honey and cream. Playing catch-up, did anyone combine day 1 & 2 the chocolate and cupid and did it make the perfect cup of chocolate covered cherries? 😊
Today's tea is not bad! But I need to switch to a black tea for some caffeine. Steeping some Yunnan Gold - my favorite!
Not my thing really, but better than red roobios
Goood Morning, all! Happy Tuesday all! I'm not a huge rooibos fan, but green rooibos is much better than red. I prefer the softer notes like oat/wheat vs woody/medicinal that the red rooibos has. Not a bad sip today.
One of the things I'm thankful to CommuniTEA for is helping me learn the difference between green YUM rooibos and red NOT YUM rooibos. I prefer the Green Rooibos teas with extra flavoring like Bonita and Blueberry, but even this plain green is far better than any mix with red.
I am with you all the way. I am not a fan at all of regular rooibos but this green stuff is great.
Sharon, if you have any red rooibos teas that you don’t want, just bundle them up and send them to me - I’ll be happy to pay the postage! 😋

Good morning tea pals. I posted this last night but I’ll do it again for the earlier crowd and anyone new to communitea. We’re putting together a cookbook! Everyone is welcome to submit a recipe or two. It can be an original you developed, it can be an old family recipe, it can be something that you found and just love making. Whatever you want to share with our tea family! Submissions are open until April 14. Then we’ll have a downloadable pdf available, but we also found a printer if you want a hard copy. And you no longer need to submit a photo if you don’t want to. I’ll happily photograph your dish for my portfolio! Submit your recipes here: https://forms.gle/L1kmLZqazNeRcPjX8
Good morning everyone! I love the cookbook idea!! I'll look for a recipe or two to share. Thank you Christine for putting this together
Thank you Jenny! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Hello tea friends. I tripped last evening holding a just poured cup of tea and burned my hand and have splash burns on my face. My glasses protected my eyes. I will save today’s tea for this evening. I intend to brew a pot of cherry green for my lunch. Hopefully everyone has a good day today.
Rita, I'm so sorry. I hope the burns are not bad and heal quickly.
Oh no, Rita, what a shock, as well as much pain. I hope today is going better for you.
Oh no! I hope you're okay! :O Did you go to an urgent care? I burned my hand pretty bad with tea once and needed some medicine and bandages.

I am sorry this happened, I hope it is not serious. Lots of ice (no butter) and then silvadene (burn cream) or Neosporin/triple antibiotic if you don't have any burn cream.

Oh no! I’m so sorry Rita! I hope that your burn heals quickly and that you have a better day today.

Goooooooooooooooood Afternoon CommuniTEA! How in the name of Green Rooibos herbal on this Happy Tuesday are you Tea drinkers?
Have a TEArrific Tuesday!
I was reminded this morning that I need to brew and sip the daily teas and try not to have a preconceived idea about it beforehand. I brewed yesterday’s tea last night before we went to bed and decided to take it with me. I had brewed it in a vacuum-sealed double walled travel mug that keeps things hot for a very long time. I took a couple of sips initially before it had settled down and it wasn’t a favorite. Then I fell asleep and didn’t try it again until very early this morning. Of course it was only a bit above room temp by then but it was actually an enjoyable taste. I’m pleasantly surprised and hope that I can get a second brew from the leaves around lunch time.
Michele C, thanks for posting a pic of the new Selefina organizer box. It looks like it works great! You can really see what you have this way.

I had Scottish Breakfast yesterday for the first time in a while, but something else needed my attention and I way oversteeped what was already going to be a strong cup… it was darn near black and extremely strong lol! Hey, I felt pretty accomplished with the rest of my workday at least. 💁🏻♀️
