Laager launches two new flavours

Generations have enjoyed the health benefits and natural taste of Laager Rooibos and consumers can now enjoy two fresh new flavours: Mint Flavoured Rooibos & Chamomile Tea and Cranberry & Wild Cherry Flavoured Rooibos. These two new flavours join the existing Green Rooibos favourites: pure Green Rooibos and a Citrus & Ginger Flavoured option.

“The range now has a herbal flavour for every occasion and mood," says marketing manager Candice Sessions. “We’ve specifically looked at variants that have a positive effect on one's wellbeing and are excited about the delicious flavour combinations and health benefits that each product offers.”

So which flavour is best for you?

  • If you are looking for a way to relax and unwind after a busy day then a cup of Mint Flavoured Rooibos & Chamomile tea is the perfect cuppa for you. The blend combines the best of Rooibos, which is naturally caffeine free, with the well-known soothing benefits of chamomile.
  • For those feeling run-down, the zesty flavour and aroma of the Citrus & Ginger flavoured Green Rooibos is the ideal combination to awaken your senses and give you the lift you need.
  • The juicy burst of berry flavours in the Laager Cranberry & Wild Cherry flavoured Rooibos will delight your senses no matter your age and leave you feeling refreshed. This flavour is also delicious served cold as an iced tea.
  • The pure Laager Green Rooibos variant is made from unfermented rooibos and packed with the benefits of green rooibos to restore your mind and body — the ideal beverage for those looking to lead a healthier lifestyle.

The best way to enjoy your preferred flavour of Laager Rooibos is to add a tea bag to a cup of freshly boiled water and let it brew for five minutes - then sit back, relax and savour the flavour.

Available in packs of 20 teabags in leading retail stores nationwide. For more information visit:
