Tips

  • The Good Fats in Coconut Milk are important to extract the full benefit of Rooibos, and to minimize the bitter tannins. Remember, good fats will satisfy you without causing fat gain. Keto diets need 70% fat so this is the perfect beverage.

  • A Substitute Herbal Tea Latte can made by substituting Rooibos for Red Raspberry Leaf Tea

  • Simmer on low heat to extract the full benefit of Rooibos tea

  • Be cautious when straining hot tea, to prevent burn accidents

  • Please avoid your specific food allergies. This recipe is allergy-free as above, when the correct ingredients are used as per the recipe above.

  • This is best made fresh
