What a coincidence. Last saturday we were pulling shots with tea. It gave better results than i expected. The orange spices infusion was drinkable and somewhere a mixture between tea and ... tea? I don't know. It's a totaly new experience, and i can imagine this Rooibos tea espresso could be an extra attraction to some people at our bar. Check out the article below :

Who says espresso has to give you a jolt to be good?
A new espresso product made from rooibos tea - often marketed as red tea - is proving that it's possible to pull a great shot from a product that is fruity and naturally caffeine free.
Produced in South Africa (where rooibos is grown), red espresso resembles finely ground loose tea. It can be used in conventional home and professional espresso machines.
Made as a traditional espresso, red espresso provides intense fruity flavors. But where the product really shines is turning the espresso into fancy coffee-style drinks, such as lattes and cappuccinos.
Rooibos takes on smooth, creamy notes when combined with cream or milk. This combination works especially well with the more intense flavor of red espresso.
Red espresso is available online for $16.99 per 8.8-ounce bag at http://redespresso.com
