Description

Rooibos tea, also known as red bush tea, is an herbal tea that is made from the leaves of the Aspalathus linearis shrub, which is native to South Africa. Rooibos tea has a sweet, earthy flavour and is naturally caffeine-free. It is also low in tannins, which makes it a less bitter tea than black or green tea.

Rooibos tea has been consumed in South Africa for centuries, and it has recently gained popularity around the world due to its many health benefits. Rooibos tea is a good source of antioxidants, which can help to protect the body from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cells and contribute to the development of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease.

In addition to its antioxidant content, rooibos tea has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, and antimicrobial properties. Some studies have also shown that rooibos tea may help to improve blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and bone health.

Rooibos tea is a versatile tea that can be enjoyed hot or cold. It can be consumed on its own or flavoured with milk, honey, lemon, or other spices. Rooibos tea is also a popular ingredient in iced tea, lattes, and cappuccinos.

It is naturally caffeine-free and has many traditional medicinal benefits that we are unable to mention for legal reasons, but contact us for a free consultation to find out more.
