Rooibos has become one of the hottest trends in the tea industry due to its delightful flavor, rich mahogany color and abundant health benefits. Aside from its pleasant taste, one of its highly praised attributes is that it’s naturally caffeine free, unlike conventional teas. In addition, this good-for-you brew packs a healthy punch of antioxidants, polyphenols and many other nutrients.
Artiste, a global flavor and fragrance specialty company, offers a Rooibos Tea Extract that is ideal for beverage applications. The sweet, somewhat nutty taste is a fresh alternative to standard teas.
According to a recent report from market research firm Packaged Facts, the US market for tea reached over $6.5 billion in 2011, up 5.2 percent from the previous year. As such, Artiste also offers a selection of additional popular tea extracts such as black, white and green varieties for hot or cold beverage applications.
