Red Rooibos Hot Tea Toddy

Red Rooibos Hot Tea Toddy

A hot Tea Toddy can heat up any night. Skip the caffeine of a classic black tea toddy by using Red Rooibos! Red Rooibos packs the mineral, woodsy qualities of a black tea with the benefits of a naturally caffeine free herbal. Check out this easy recipe and get ready to have a cozy evening. 


This recipe makes 2 Tea Toddies


  • 1 tablespoon (4 grams) Red Rooibos - Shop Red Rooibos Now
  • 8 ounces water heated to 205 F
  • 2 teaspoons of honey
  • 3 ounces Bourbon of your choice (we used Old Forrester)
  • 2 lemon wedges

You'll Also Need:

  • 2 mugs
  • A tea infuser
  • A spoon for stirring


  • Infuse the Red Rooibos tea leaves in the hot water for 5 minutes using your preferred way of steeping loose leaf tea (we recommend a Simple Brew Teapot or Folding Handle Infuser).
  • While the tea is steeping, add 1 teaspoon of honey and 1.5 ounces of Bourbon (1 shot) to each mug.
  • Once the Red Rooibos is done infusing, strain half a cup (4 ounces) of the infusion into each tea mug.
  • Squeeze a lemon wedge into each mug and stir everything together until the honey is combined. Feel free to add more honey or lemon to taste.
  • Cheers!
