Also known by its English translation, Redbush, this "red tea", is grown only in South Africa. Rooibos is caffeine free, low in tannins, and high in antioxidants, thus, making it beneficial to your body’s health and well-being. When brewed, Rooibos produces a reddish amber cup, that has a milder flavor than black tea with no after taste.
Brewing Tips: The Rooibos herbal tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a rolling boil (205-212° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. It should be steeped for 4-5 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!
