Please the palate with rooibos tea!
Rooibos teas are herbal tisanes that use fine red leaves from the South African aspalathus linearis (‘red bush’) plant. A beautiful amber in appearance upon infusion, rooibos is naturally caffeine-free and also a potent source of vitamins and minerals. Furthermore, due to its effective anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic properties, rooibos is a great sip for tea drinkers on the go.

Good for you, good for your taste buds
Rooibos tea is great for those looking for a caffeine-free tisane that has the addictive astringent taste of traditional black tea (with slightly lower tannins content). It contains no oxalic acid, making rooibos a particularly good option for tea drinkers looking to take care of their kidneys in particular. Aside from being remarkably rich in the antioxidant polyphenols that help clear up acne-prone skin, studies support that rooibos can also assist in preventing certain cancers, promoting healthy blood vessels, and even reducing the harmful impact that radiation from sun rays has on the body!
The tea for athletes
Since first being cultivated by the Khoi people of South Africa, rooibos tea is thought to boost hydration by supporting electrolyte levels, which is also great for the skin. While this theory isn't strongly supported by research, that doesn't stop athletes (particularly runners) in South Africa from commonly using rooibos tea as a fluid replacement for water due to its beneficial properties!
How much caffeine is in rooibos tea?
