How To Brew Rooibos 'Redbush' Tea

Rooibos tea boasts a vibrant woody-red colour and has a mild earthy flavour with distinct sweet notes of honey and vanilla. Rooibos has a delicious calming sensation and has zero caffeine. It can also reduce oxidative stress and help with high altitude sickness. Low tannin levels mean Rooibos is gentle on your stomach.
