ROOIBOS TEA

Rooibos is the "green Tea" of South Africa, however, it is NOT Green Tea at all ! Rooibos is a good source of antioxidants and is the only known source of a potent antioxidant aspalathin, which could play a role in combating several lifestyle diseases. Unlike black and green teas, Rooibos is naturally caffeine free (not decaffeinated) and therefore suitable for children, infants and breast-feeding mothers.

Rooibos is not a true tea, but a herb (pronounced ROY-BOSS)
  • The botanical (scientific) name for the Rooibos plant is Aspalathus linearis.
The brew made from the dried Rooibos leaves is therefore a herbal infusion (known as a tisane) rather than a tea, but is widely known as Rooibos tea. People have been talking and writing about the health benefits of Rooibos since the late 1960's.
  • Rooibos has proven cancer-fighting properties in animal research studies, and exciting new research points towards the role that Rooibos can play in promoting heart health and preventing diabetes.
  • After centuries of use, no negative side effects of Rooibos have ever been recorded.

  • Honeybush contains many minerals essential to human health, including Iron, Potassium, Calcium and Manganese. These are vital in fluid balance, bone growth and repair, and prevention of anemia.
