Rooibos Tea Bag
Botanical Name: Aspalathus linearis
Rooibos tea is made from the branches and twigs of a tree called Aspalathus linearis. This fragrant, caffeine-free tea is the national drink of South Africa.
It is used as medicine for preventing cancer due to the high level of polyphenolic antioxidants and for preventing the decline of thinking skills with age.
In foods, rooibos tea is used as a beverage.
Rooibos is starting to take off as a healthy beverage, unlike many other teas, it is completely caffeine-free, low in tannins, and thus lacks the bitter astringent taste experienced with regular teas such as black and green teas. This low tannin content is great for those with digestive problems who have difficulty with tannin-rich regular teas or coffee.
