Rooibos is Afrikaans for ‘Red Bush’ and is only grown in a small area in the Cederberg region of the Western Cape Province in South Africa. (Not a Camellia Sinensis tea)
The flavour of Rooibos is light, sweet and slightly nutty, and is naturally caffeine-free.
Rooibos is also gaining popularity as a health tonic due to its large amounts of antioxidants, and beneficial properties.
