This herbal tea is known by many names - Redbush tea, Rooibos, Bush tea, Rooibosch etc. It comes from the plant Aspalathus linearis, which usually grows in a small mountainous area of South Africa. The leaves are usually fermented, which produces the distinctive reddish-brown colour and enhances the flavour. This tea is perceived to have antioxidant properties and, as it has no caffeine, is used to reduce oxidative stress.
Our Rooibos has a refreshing taste, that is full-bodied and slightly nutty. It is one of the most delicious we have tried
