Rooibos. It’s a word that doesn’t easily roll off the tongue, with properties and benefits that are much less known than its pronunciation. Those navigating the health-kick arena may recognize rooibos as the ‘red bush’ (hence, it’s alternative moniker rotbusch), with its characteristic reddish brown stems. Though only grown in the northern, mountainous regions of Cape Town, South Africa, rooibos is turning out to be quite an international sensation.
Rooibos is sometimes fittingly referred to as a “coffee drinker’s tea,” in relation to its nutty, hickory-like palatable quality. More so, the bold tisane is repeatedly hailed for its high infusion of antioxidants, which is strongly believed to treat high blood pressure and allergen-related diseases. Rooibos is said to maintain even more antioxidant flavanoids than green and white teas, which certainly helps add to the herb’s growing repertoire! Aside from its antioxidant capacity, rooibos is naturally caffeine-free and provides essential electrolytes–making it and ultra-hydrating beverage, perfect for the active tea drinker.
The Teaologist features a wide selection of teas and tisanes that feature and highlight the remarkable taste and health qualities of rooibos, such as the popular berry rooibos blend, The Camus, the fragrant mixture of our Spring Trellis tea, and the heart warming Honey Bear blend.
