March 16, 2010

Rooibos Tea (pronounced ROY-boss)  or Red Tea is a dramatic herb from a South African that contains polyphenols and flavonoids. Often called “African redbush tea,” Rooibos herbal tea delights the senses and delivers potential health benefits with each caffeine-free sip.

Studies have shown that the South African herb has health benefits.  We use its caffeine-free leaves as the base for many of our herbal blends like our Be Well collection. Studies from the Medical Research Council in South Africa and the Aichi Medical University in Japan found that rooibos has its own unique antioxidants that help restore and protect cells.
