Rooibos, pronounced “ROY-boss” is so easy to love.

Unlike green tea and black tea which come from the camellia sinensis plant, Rooibos is made using the leaves of the Aspalathus Linearis shrub grown in South Africa. Also known as redbush tea or red tea, it’s actually a herb or tisane.

The history of Rooibos go back many centuries where it was used as a medicinal herb by South Africa’s first-nation people, the San people. Many centuries later, and still a staple in South Africa, Rooibos has travelled the world and can now be found in supermarkets and homes globally.

Rooibos is caffeine free with a whole lot of goodness. It contains anti-oxidants (aspalathin and quercetin), as well as vital minerals including magnesium, calcium, zinc and vitamin C.

When brewed it is sweet and nutty and is known as an incredibly healthy drink which makes a wonderful alternative to coffee.

Delicious as a hot drink or iced tea for the hotter days! See the brewing instructions here for a hot brew, and iced.
