Rooibos African Red Bush Tea
(1/2 lb.)

Rooibos African Red Bush Tea <BR>(1/2 lb.)

Rooibos tea comes from the South African Red Bush and although it is a popular beverage in southern Africa, it is only grown in a very small area of the Western Cape Province. This tea has a unique, very enjoyable herbal flavor unlike anything else you have tried. Naturally sweet, most people will find they like it without adding sugar.

It is also unique in the fact that it will not become bitter if steeped too long. Some places in Africa actually leave it to steep for days! Rooibos tea contains no caffeine and no added colors or preservatives, making it a natural beverage. Rooibos has been shown to aid in health problems such as insomnia, irritability, headaches, nervous tension, and hypertension.

Its reported health benefits are making this tea particularly popular in the western countries among the health conscious consumers. Studies also show that this tea contains anti-spasmodic agents, which can relieve stomach cramping and colic in infants. In South Africa, Rooibos is used to treat allergies, hay fever, asthma, eczema, and irritated skin very effectively by being brewed, cooled, and placed directly on infected areas.

Rooibos contains anti-oxidants, which can help slow the aging process and boost the immune system. It also contains the minerals, copper, iron and potassium, calcium, fluoride, zinc, manganese, alpha-hydroxy (for healthy skin) and magnesium (for the nervous system). Early on Dr le Fras Nortier realized the potential of this wild tea.

He encouraged farmers to try to grow rooibos since it was so difficult to find or to cultivate. After many failed attempts, there was finally success and the price of the rooibos seeds soon rose to be the most expensive vegetable seed in the world.

This gourmet herbal tea is in loose-leaf form and will ship with a free tea ball infuser. Limit one free infuser per order.
