Rooibos (pronounced “Roy Bosh”) is not a real tea but comes from the plant aspalathus linearis. Native to the mountains of South Africa, it is prized for its great flavor and health beneficial anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins. Naturally caffeine-free, rooibos is also known as Red Bush and has a deep, dark red infusion with a mild, slightly sweet chestnut-like taste. Recent research also shows that it contains the highest known levels of anti-aging properties of any plant on earth. It tastes great hot or iced.
