Rooibos (“red bush” in Dutch) is an herbal infusion; it is not from the tea plant, Camellia Sinensis. Rooibos is an exotic shrub with needle-like leaves that grows in remote regions of South Africa. Rooibos can also be scented or flavored, just like tea leaves can, resulting in a deep-red cup with a round, full taste.

Studies show that Rooibos has the highest levels of antioxidants of any consumable plant. It’s also chock-full of important minerals and vitamins, has very little tannin, and no caffeine; it is said to relieve insomnia, stomachache, cramps, and colic.

Brewing Instructions:

 TEMPERATURE: Pour 212°F water (at the boiling point) over the leaves.

 TIME: Steep for 3-4 minutes.
