Brewing instructions
Description

Rooibos Green Tea is a South African Herbal Tea. It comes from the Cederberg region of the country, which is the only place where it grows. The primary difference between it and Red Rooibos is the limited processing it undergoes, meaning it retains much of its natural character.

When you buy Green Rooibos Tea, we can ensure both its quality and consistency. This is because we pack it fresh to order.

What is Rooibos Green Tea?

Rooibos (often pronounced “roy-boss”) is the product of the Rooibos plant (Aspalathus linearis). The leaves used in its making only experience a small amount of oxidation at the factory.

This means that, unlike Red Rooibos Tea, which is fully oxidised, Green Rooibos Tea tastes more “natural.” It tends to have a deliciously light flavour with mellow notes and a slight sweetness.

Rooibos Green Tea vs Green Tea

Putting Green Rooibos vs Green Tea is a relatively difficult thing to do as they share so many similarities. Perhaps the most obvious difference is the fact that Green Tea comes from the Camellia sinusitis (Tea) plant.

Meanwhile, perhaps the most noteworthy similarity is that workers do little to the chemical structure of their leaves. Then there is the question of their caffeine content.

Green Rooibos Tea Caffeine Content

Does Green Rooibos Tea have caffeine? No, which marks another difference between it and Green Tea. It is indeed an excellent reason to buy it.

You can get the same great, natural-tasting qualities of “real” Tea without the worry of consuming too much caffeine. Those who’re pregnant, in particular, and who’re looking to cut down their caffeine intake, might, as a result, see its potential.

How to Brew Green Rooibos Tea

1, Add Loose Tea to a Tea Infuser or Filter.

2, Place the Tea-filled accessory in a cup or mug.

3, Put the kettle on and, once boiled to 100°C, pour it over the leaves.

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

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

Tasting Notes: Imparts refreshingly mellow and herbaceous flavours.

What is Green Rooibos Tea Good For?

Countless studies indicate that the health benefits of Green Rooibos Tea are far-reaching. Its most famous ability is to treat seasonal allergies.

Additionally, frequent consumption can lead to lower blood pressure, boosted immunity, improved digestion and even, potentially, reduced risks of colic in babies. But why and how, exactly, can it provide so much support? The reason is its Rooibos Green Tea antioxidants.

Does Rooibos Tea Have Catechins?

Allow us to return momentarily to the similarities between this Herbal Tea and Green Tea. Both varieties - due to their lack of processing - retain much of their antioxidant strength.

One constituent missing, however, is the ever-beneficial catechin. But worry not. Green Rooibos Tea’s nutritional value extends to many other antioxidants, all of which improve life in small yet significant ways.

Green Rooibos Tea Benefits for Skin

It turns out that Rooibos Tea Benefits your outside as much as your inside. Researchers at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, can explain its potential here.

They discovered its effectiveness in protecting against the degeneration of preadipocytes, which are cells found in fat tissue. This enables it to prevent wrinkles from forming on the skin.

Rooibos Green Tea Weight Loss

Would you believe that it also boasts Rooibos Green Tea metabolism-boosting properties? This enables the body to burn fat quicker and more efficiently, leading to periods of exercise producing better, more noticeable results.

Ernest du Toit, a spokesperson for the South Africa Rooibos Council, goes further to note: “[It] contains no fat or carbohydrates… [while] inhibiting fat-stage hormones within the body.”

Green Rooibos Tea Diabetes

Some scientists have recognised correlations between Green Rooibos Tea and diabetes improvement. Its abundance in aspalathin - one of its Rooibos Green Tea antioxidants - is the primary contributing factor.

According to preliminary (emphasis on “preliminary”) animal-based research, it might have anti-diabetic effects by balancing blood sugar levels and reducing insulin resistance.

Green Rooibos Tea Pregnancy

Is Green Rooibos Tea safe during pregnancy? It appears that yes, you can have it, but in moderation. A few cups every now and again are unlikely to cause any harm to mother or child.

It’s worth noting, however, that, in the rarest of cases, there have been reports of Green Rooibos Tea side effects. Should you have any concerns, we recommend speaking to a doctor, midwife or another medical expert.

Green Rooibos Tea and Breastfeeding

The same rules regarding Green Rooibos Tea during pregnancy seem to apply when it comes to Green Rooibos and breastfeeding. You should nevertheless keep in mind that no human medical studies have taken place to confirm such speculation.

We therefore await further research before endorsing it. Should you choose to wait until afterwards, at least rest assured knowing it’ll be worth the wait.

  7. I was only wondering if there was such a thing as Green Rooibos when I discovered this tea. More delicate and clean than standard red. Refreshing, no bitterness at all with a natural sweetness to it. A very welcome discovery.

  8. I've used green Rooibos tea for years as teabags, but using loose tea is far, far better. Great taste.
