This is one of my original recipe creations. It's especially good for those who already enjoy rooibos but want to give it a little variety. It's best hot but decent chilled. Note: I've listed things in teaspoons because this website won't let me list it in parts, but it's technically in a ratio, so you can make whatever quantity you want.


  1. Assemble all the ingredients and place in a tea ball. Note: If you don't own a tea ball, then you can put the ingredients directly in the water and then strain out later. Note that has forced me to list the rooibos as "rooibos tea bags" but I used loose leaf tea.
  2. Place tea ball in hot water and steep for 10 minutes.

I really enjoyed this wonderful tea. The hint of anise seed was the perfect touch in this deep red rooibos tea. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Feelah_the_tigress. Made for Spring 2013 Pick-A-Chef.

A nice flavoured soothing tea with the fennel substituted for the anise. I used an organic rooibus honey-bush tea bag from Traditional Medicinals.
