Rooibos tea

Rooibos tea (pronounced roy-bos) translates to ‘red bush’ and is an antioxidant-rich tisane native to South Africa, where people have long used it as a popular substitute for black tea.

Rooibos tea is well known for its high levels of antioxidants—containing at least 50% more than green tea! Enjoy this tisane morning, noon or night for a soothing, caffeine-free way to wash away the day.With a delicate sweet flavour, our rooibos tea is perfect on its own, with a slice of lemon, or with a dash of honey or milk to sweeten the taste.

As you can see above, we offer an array of beautiful premium rooibos tisanes for you to enjoy.

 

What are the health benefits of rooibos tea?

Boasting everything from ultra-hydrating properties to traditional medicinal uses, the benefits stemming from brewing a cup of rooibos tea are truly abundant!

Consider pouring a cup of rooibos tea the next time you want to relax and unwind during some well deserved “me” time. Enjoy the soothing aromas and elegant flavours of a freshly brewed rooibos tea. Even during summer, you could whip up a batch of iced rooibos tea to cool down with style.

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. 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 reduce the harmful impact that radiation from sun rays have on the body!

 

The tea for athletes

Since first being cultivated by the Khoi people of South Africa, rooibos tea has been used to boost hydration, which is great for the skin and easing fluid retention. In fact, athletes (particularly runners) in South Africa commonly use rooibos tea as a fluid replacement to water due its beneficial properties!

 

How much caffeine is in rooibos tea?

Despite being similar in taste to traditional black tea, rooibos is actually a herbal tisane, and therefore is a tasty alternative that’s completely free of caffeine!
