Rooibos Tea is a pure, natural and healthy beverage, as it contains no colourants, caffeine, additives or preservatives. It is high in anti-oxidants, and rich in minerals. The Aspalathus Linearis plant (red bush plant), which is used to make the Rooibos Tea, was discovered by the Khoisan people of the Cederberg region in South Africa. They used it as a herbal remedy for many illnesses, and drank it as tea, for its delicious taste, which consists of a sweet nutty flavour and sweet aroma. Rooibos Tea is also called “Red Tea” or “Red Bush Tea”, because of its bright reddish colour.
