It is available here and there. It is called boshi cha ("professor tea").

where can I find Rooibos Tea?

Postby Snowdragon » 23 Feb 2005, 16:48

A while back Costco had rooibos tea bags, at a reasonable price, but recently have been unable to find it there. Has it been moved to a new location or taken off the shelf because of poor sales? I have found it at some other places around taipei, but it is either outrageously priced or mixed with carmel or vanilla flavor. Plain rooibos tea, will do. Anybody know where to get it?

I can't tell you a specific place to buy it, but if you want to enquire in Chinese, ask for boshi cha 博士茶, meaning literally "professor tea" (because boshi sounds like the bos in rooibos).

The honeybush and the rooibos are different types, no?

The rooibos I purchased at Costco was about 40 bags for around 300 NT. Quite tasty. Is there any one from costco that knows if this is still available.

For the curious: Rooibos tea tastes sort of like red tea but without the bitterness or caffeine. I understand it is great hot or iced with lemon. I like it plain and can drink it by the pot if it is readily available.
