Oh my, Green Rooibos Salt

13 September 2017 – Day 10 of 14


The Carmién Teatox has inspired us to expand our horizon on the benefits and uses of natural, herbal, tea.  Today I share with you an alternative seasoning to roasted vegetables or air-popped popcorn.  Sprinkle some of the home-made tea salt over your snack or salad for an alternative seasoning option.

Green Rooibos Tea contains natural anti-oxidants which help to prevent cancer & combating free radical damage in cells. Rooibos alleviates allergies – asthma, hay-fever, eczema. Rooibos has anti-spasmodic qualities and alleviates colic & stomach cramps in babies. Rooibos replaces essential minerals, iron, potassium, zinc & sodium.

Here’s a recipe for our suggestion for a savoury condiment:


  • 4 Tablespoons (60ml) Green Rooibos tea leaves (remove the tea from the sachets)
  • 2 Tablespoons (30ml) Organic Sea Salt


  • For a coarse salt blend, simply mix the tea and salt together until well blended.
  • For a finer salt blend, place the tea and salt in a mortar & pestle or spice grinder and blend until you reach the desired consistency.
  • Don’t be afraid to adjust the ratio of tea to salt according to taste. Add more tea if the salt is really strong, and vice versa.
  • Store in a sealed spice jar in a pantry away from light and moisture.


  • Savoury popcorn (as a savoury snack).
  • Sprinkle over home-made pizza.
  • Roasted seasonal vegetables.
  • Grilled fish or seafood.
  • Noodle-and-vegetable stir fry.


Alternatives, for added flavour:
