    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! 

  • Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of Rooibos for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the pot, cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes. Pour into your cup; add milk and sugar to taste.

    Iced tea brewing method (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of Rooibos into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the Rooibos. Steep for 5 minutes. 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.
