SIP, SNACK AND CELEBRATE EASTER

Creating the ultimate Easter tea involves crafting a menu of delicious and festive beverages that capture the spirit of the holiday. Here are several ways to incorporate Rooibos into your Easter festivities to create memorable moments with the ones you love:

  1. Select a variety of blends: Offer a selection of Rooibos blends to cater to different tastes. Include classic favourites like plain Rooibos, vanilla Rooibos and chai Rooibos, as well as other Easter-themed infusions like chocolate Rooibos, Mint Rooibos, Citrus Rooibos, Spiced Rooibos or Berry Rooibos. 
  1. Create your own signature blend: Get creative and craft your own Rooibos blend that evoke the flavours and colours of Easter. For example, you could create an “Easter Blossom Bouquet” featuring Rooibos, jasmine and dried edible flowers like rose petals or lavender. Experiment with different flavour combinations and give them comical or intriguing names like “Bunny Hop Brew”, “Eggstraordinary Easter Splash” or “Easter Serenade”. 
  1. Serve refreshing iced teas: Offer refreshing iced Rooibos by brewing a batch of iced tea using Rooibos as a base, alongside other fruity flavours like raspberry, peach or lemon, and garnish with fresh fruit slices or mint leaves for a festive touch.
  1. Include specialty lattes: Elevate your Easter menu with specialty lattes that showcase seasonal flavours. Offer classics like Rooibos chai or matcha lattes, as well as unique creations, such as lavender honey lattes or cinnamon maple lattes. Top each latte with a sprinkle of ground spices or a dollop of whipped cream for added indulgence.
  1. Provide assorted sweeteners and milks: Set up a self-serve station with a variety of sweeteners and milk options to accommodate different preferences. Offer traditional choices like sugar, honey and stevia, as well as alternative milk options such as almond-, oat- and soy milk.
  1. Serve Easter-themed treats: Pair your Rooibos selection with a variety of Easter-themed treats to indulge your guests’ sweet tooth. Serve an assortment of cookies, pastries and cakes decorated with festive motifs like flowers, bunnies and eggs. Consider incorporating seasonal flavours like lemon, coconut or carrot cake into your desserts.
  1. Decorate with seasonal accents: Set the scene for your Easter tea with festive decorations that reflect the spirit of the holiday. Arrange fresh flowers, such as tulips, daffodils or hyacinths as centrepieces for your table or try a fynbos bouquet. Incorporate pastel-coloured linens, napkins and tableware to create a soft and inviting atmosphere.
  1. Add a personal touch: Infuse your Easter gathering with personal touches that make it memorable for your guests. Consider creating handmade place cards or party favours adorned with Easter-themed designs. Share the stories behind your tea selections or recipes to add an extra layer of meaning to the occasion.

By following these tips, you can create the ultimate Easter tea experience that delights your guests and celebrates the joy of the holiday season.

Happy Easter!
