Find out more about Rooibos Tea

Rooibos tea

Rooibos tea (pronounced ‘roy-boss’), also known as redbush, is a full-bodied naturally caffeine free tea that only grows in South Africa’s Cape region. The taste is smooth, natural and slightly sweet.

Recently voted one of the world’s healthiest foods by TIME magazine, rooibos is often appreciated as a soothing and health-giving substitute for traditional black tea.

Fruit and herbal teas, which are simply made from dried herbs and flowers like peppermint and camomile, are also caffeine free and appreciated for their use in traditional medicine.
