Rooibos tea is also known as Red Bush Tea. It is a caffeine-free herbal tea that is similar to black tea. It can be made in the same manner for a soothing hot drink at any time of day.
The full-bodied Rooibos, made from the 'red bush' from which it gets its name, is a big hit in its native South Africa. However, in the last decade, its popularity has spread throughout the world.
Rooibos is grown in fields and thrives only in and around the Cederberg mountains near South Africa's Cape.
Rooibos has a mild and aromatic flavour, contains no caffeine, and does not become bitter even when brewed for an extended period of time.
Rooibos is high in Vitamin C and minerals.
It is caffeine-free and suitable for all age groups, as well as a tasty alternative during pregnancy.
