Rooibos Teas

Rooibos (pronounced roy-boss) is also called Red Tea because of its vibrant, ruby-red color. It is not a real tea, since it dose not come from Camellia Sinensis plant. Rooibos consists of tiny, flat leaves and has a sweet, full-bodied flavor without a trace of bitterness. Rich in antioxidants and health-promoting properties, Rooibos has many of the same health-promoting properties as Green Tea, but is 100% caffeine-free, making it an excellent choice for evening or for people with caffeine-sensitivities. Rooibos is prized for its great flavor and health-beneficial antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. Rooibos grows in a small area 100 miles north of Cape Town, South Africa with no alternative source available anywhere in the world. When hot or cold it will make a very refreshing drink and can be very conveniently brewed in our Tea Maker "Magic" Cup.
