WHAT IS ROOIBOS TEA?
Rooibos Tea (pronounced “Roybos”), sometimes also called red tea, is brewed from the dried leaves of the rooibos plant (Aspalathi linearis). This plant is a low-growing shrub native to South Africa, which is quite unlike traditional tea trees. The oxidised leaves, causing the reddish-brown colour of the beverage, create a smooth and naturally sweet sensation in your cup.
DOES ROOIBOS TEA HAVE CAFFEINE?
No, Rooibos tea is naturally caffeine free.
WHAT DOES ROOIBOS TASTE LIKE?
Our organic, loose leaf Rooibos Tea blend has a full bodied flavour, which is remarkably smooth and sometimes described as slightly nutty or earthy. The leaves’ natural sweetness is complemented by the cinnamon and vanilla.
ROOIBOS TEA HEALTH BENEFITS:
Native to South Africa, the red tea is a gentle whole body tonic. It is rich in antioxidants and minerals, and is traditionally used to protect against disease as well as strengthening the body. Some studies indicate that it has up to 50 times more antioxidants than green tea. The high amount of antioxidants is the reason for its popularity amongst Japanese women, who are drinking Rooibos Tea for its positive effect on the skin and hair. It has been known to clear skin of acne and prevent wrinkles. Furthermore, the plant is rich in Vitamin C, low in tannins and may ease digestive problems.
We added cinnamon to our blend, which is traditionally used to lower blood sugar levels and help manage sugar cravings.
CAN I DRINK ROOIBOS TEA DURING PREGNANCY?
Yes, you can. Due to the blend being caffeine free and the plant containing magnesium, calcium as well as a natural high amount of antioxidants, it is even recommended as a beverage of choice while pregnant. A cup can have positive effects on digestion and may ease reflux and colic.
It’s important to be aware of the safety issues when using herbs in pregnancy, because not everything that’s natural is safe for pregnant mothers. It’s important to be cautious and to use only those herbs with a good safety profile.
