Rooibos is a delectably different South African tea bush that has taken the world by storm. Also known as Redbush, the rooibos shrub (Aspalathus linearis) only thrives on the lower slopes of the Cederberg mountains, to the north of Cape Town.
The best rooibos tea has a rich, copper colour and a mildly sweet, earthy flavour. Rooibos pairs well with almost any ingredient to create incredibly satisfying and moreish taste combinations.
Rooibos is a naturally caffeine-free tea that’s ideal for evening drinking. Try our Golden Vanilla recipe to experience a top-quality, organic rooibos tea blended with natural vanilla.
From Pina Colada cocktails to exotic deserts and chocolate bars, most of us are familiar with the tropical fragrance of the fruit of Cocos nucifera – the coconut palm.
Coconut flesh has a sweet, creamy flavour and a flaky texture. It’s an irresistible combination that makes coconut a popular ingredient in curries as well as cakes.
Our organic desiccated coconut is a convenient, dried form of coconut flesh that we use in all of our Taka tea recipes. As well as giving our teas a hint of tropical fragrance, desiccated coconut also adds notes of creamy sweetness.
In our Taka Turmeric tea recipes, we use 100% organic Ceylon cinnamon. This sustainably grown spice is made from rolled quills of Cinnamomum verum bark. Cultivated mainly in Indonesia, this true form of cinnamon is famous for its delectable aroma and flavour.
Cinnamon is a deliciously fragrant, woody spice that’s often associated with festive treats like Christmas cakes and mulled wine. In India, cinnamon is an Ayurvedic spice that forms one of the main ingredients of Garam Masala.
Ceylon cinnamon adds subtle warmth and complexity to many of our spiced tea recipes.
Often compared to aniseed or fennel, we find that liquorice has a richer, more wholesome flavour. Our organic liquorice is made from the woody roots of Glycyrrhiza glabra, a two metre tall shrub which thrives in sunny climates across Asia and Europe.
Liquorice is a mouth-watering, flavoursome herb which appears in the folklore and foods of many Eastern countries. The properties of liquorice root are mentioned in the English herbal encyclopaedia, ‘Culpeper’s Complete Herbal’, published in 1653.
As well as delivering a deliciously wholesome aftertaste, liquorice helps to blend and balance the spicy flavours in our 100% organic teas.
Organic vanilla pods are harvested from the orchid, Vanilla planifolia. Like many orchids, vanilla is a difficult plant to grow. To ensure the production of pods, each individual flower must be pollinated by hand. This makes natural, organic vanilla a luxurious and expensive ingredient.
Rather than using real vanilla, many mass-produced cakes and ice-creams contain a synthetic vanilla made from paper manufacturing waste. The flavour of natural vanilla pods is infinitely more rich and complex.
Try a freshly brewed cup of our Golden Vanilla tea to experience the mouth-watering aroma and creamy aftertaste of the best organic vanilla.
The dried, star shaped fruits of Illicium verum (Star Anise) are one of the main ingredients of Chinese, five-spice powder. It’s also one of the ingredients that gives the Italian liqueur, Sambuca, its distinctive aniseed flavour.
Star anise has a unique taste; combining the richness of liquorice with the freshness of fennel. The organic variety that we’ve chosen for our delicious Taka Turmeric recipes is 100% free from pesticides and harmful additives.
Star anise is a flavoursome blending spice with a deliciously satisfying aroma.
There are various types of pepper which can be used to add warming flavours to foodstuffs and drinks. In our Taka tea recipes, we use the crushed, dried corns of Piper nigrum.
The hot, spicy flavour of black pepper comes from a natural compound called piperine. As well as making our spiced teas deliciously moreish and stimulating, piperine also has a special digestive synergy with turmeric.
Along with turmeric, our signature ingredient, you’ll often find a warming pinch of black pepper in many of our Taka spiced tea recipes.
