Rooibos tea is also known as Red Bush tea and is the caffeine free alternative to tea being produced from the leaf of Aspaialthus Linoaris not from Camelia Sinensis. It is grown in South Africa and is full of nutrients and antioxidants with a sweet, red liquor which taste much like tea but without the caffeine. Rooibos can be enjoyed at any time of the day, hot or cold. We also have Rooibos tea bags available.
