LOOSE LEAF ROOIBOS TEA
Let us take you through the plains of South Africa with their pristine native rooibos tea. Rooibos (pronounced roy-bos) means ‘red bush’ in Afrikaans. This herbal tisane comes from the fine red leaves of the South African aspalathus linearis (‘red bush’) plant. A beautiful amber in appearance when brewed, this tisane is naturally caffeine-free and a potent source of vitamins and minerals. Due to its effective anti-inflammatory, anti-allergenic, and fluid retention properties, rooibos is a great sip for drinkers on the go. Ideal to enjoy morning, noon, and night!
Packed with healthful properties, rooibos is also well known for its high levels of antioxidants —containing at least 50 per cent more than green tea! Amongst its diverse array of antioxidants are polyphenols. These polyphenols act as effective protection against cell-damaging free radicals. As a result of its high mineral content, drinking rooibos further optimises the body’s absorption of all available nutrients. You can read even more about the health benefits of rooibos here. Given rooibos is often enjoyed as a black tea substitute, you can brew it in the same way! Perfect on its own or with a splash of milk.
This tisane can also be a great gift. Whether it’s for a birthday, Christmas, or just to say ‘I love you’, rooibos can warm hearts and hands! Want to explore our entire range of rooibos teas? You can find them here.
