Other Facts About Blood Orange Rooibos Herbal Tea

Rooibos goes by numerous names, including Redbush Tea, Bush Tea and Red Tea. In its unflavoured form, there are two primary varieties:

Red, which has undergone oxidation, and Green Rooibos, which retains its natural structure. The indigenous Khoisan people held it in high regard due to its health benefits for several centuries. However, it wasn’t until the 1960s that its popularity became widespread. 

A South African mother named Annique Theron, whose child suffered from colic caused by allergies, decided to blend her milk with Rooibos. Her 14-month-old daughter’s symptoms dissipated, prompting Theron to believe, rightly, that she’d made an amazing discovery.

Over fifty years later, her legacy is as important as ever. We’ll tell you more once we’ve shown you how to brew Rooibos Blood Orange Tea.

How to Brew Rooibos Blood Orange Tea

  1. Purchase a Tea Filter or Infuser for ease and convenience.

  2. Add about five grams of the Tea to the accessory.

  3. Boil water to 100°C and pour it over the leaves.

  4. Allow it to steep for 5 to 10 minutes. 

How to Serve: Consider honey or lemon. Alternatively, serve without accompaniments. 

Tasting Notes: Imparts discernable flavours of blood orange with sweet yet herbaceous notes. 

Does Rooibos Blood Orange Tea Have Caffeine?

This delightful Tea comes from the Aspalathus linearis plant, which grows exclusively in the Cederberg Region of South Africa’s Western Cape Province.

Related to Honeybush Tea, it is famously low in tannins and high in antioxidants. But what about Blood Orange Rooibos Herbal Tea’s caffeine content? The simple answer is that it doesn’t have the stimulating chemical compound within its leaves.

Benefits of Rooibos Blood Orange Tea

When people think about Blood Orange Rooibos Tea’s benefits, its ability to combat allergies is almost always at the forefront of the mind. Scientists have now discovered why: Quercetin.

This constituent in the Tea has potent antihistamine properties that block histamine release. Doing so effectively curbs common symptoms of seasonal allergies such as congestion, sneezing and a runny nose. 

And there’s more. According to a 2011 study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, it can reduce “bad” LDL cholesterol. Meanwhile, according to a 2012 study published in the European Journal of Nutrition, it reduces the risk of developing type-2 diabetes.

Then there’s preliminary research (emphasis on “preliminary”) that it can kill cancer cells in a laboratory environment. See more on Rooibos Tea Benefits.

  8. Although it was good, it wasn't up to the same standard as my usual supplier but this is just a personal preference thing. Don't let my personal feelings put you off, this was still excellent tea.

  10. This has become my favourite. I had a pot of orange Rooibos tea in a posh London restaurant and loved it, then set out to source it. Found it with this tea, full of flavour and the smell is as good as the taste. Love it.
