It's hard to say enough about these wonderful, 100% caffeine-free herbal teas from South Africa.
Rooibos (pronounced “Roy Bosh”) comes from the plant aspalathus linearis often called Red Bush. It brews a deep red cup with a mild, slightly sweet chestnut-like taste.
Honeybush comes from the plant cyclopia intermedia, has many of same nutrient properties, and brews a reddish brown cup with a mild citrus and slightly spicy taste.
Rooibos has been our best-selling tea since 1999 because of its superb health qualities and taste. It is the most 'tea-like' of the herbals, is great hot or iced, blends with other teas and fruit juices, and takes sweetening and milk well. Studies show Rooibos to have numerous health benefits including powerful anti-oxidant properties, as well as superoxide dismutase (SOD) to help the immune system. Rooibos also helps lower blood pressure, promote healthy skin, relieve indigestion, ease nervous tension, and reduce swollen sinuses.
Honeybush has its own unique flavor, but shares many of the same health properties of Rooibos. Choose from a wide variety of these select herbal teas. Enjoy!
