Black tea has a distinctive flavor and exerts a stimulating effect on the body due to its caffeine content. Rooibos is a red tea that does not contain caffeine, additives, preservatives, or coloring agents. It is rich in iron, potassium, and copper. Due to the low tannin level, rooibos does not hinder the body's absorption of iron.
This tea combines the rich flavors of red and black tea, sunflower, cardamom, and other herbs. The hot beverage boasts a rich, balanced taste and aroma.
For many centuries, tea drinking has been an unchanging tradition of Mount Athos, steeped in the history, philosophy, culture, and way of life of the Holy Mountain monks. After a church service or a prayer, it is customary for the elders to treat the guests of their cells with this simple and blessed beverage.
The church services of Athos are long and strenuous, requiring an exertion of strength. This is why the monks frequently enjoy aromatic tea with herbs and spices, which refreshes, restores strength, and energizes for the upcoming day. In the evening, a cup of warm tea alleviates the accumulated tension and fatigue of the day. Thus, tea-drinking in Athos represents not only a delightful taste but also robust health and inner tranquility, along with heartfelt conversations over a cup of fragrant beverage.
