Description

Organic Rooibos Tea is a type of South African Herbal Tea made using bio-cultivation methods. It consists of a gentle sweetness with notes of honey, nuts and caramel.

When you buy Organic Rooibos Tea, you’re supporting the environment, as well as the wellbeing of workers. We pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory, ensuring not only quality but also consistency.

Rooibos Tea Organic Facts

  • Rooibos comes from the Aspalathus linearis plant, which grows exclusively in the Cederberg region of South Africa, located in the Western Cape Province.
  • The correct pronunciation is “roy-boss,” although it has many other names. These include Red Bush Tea, Bush Tea and Red Tea. Honeybush Tea is a relative but a different plant.
  • There are two primary types: Rooibos Green Tea and Red Rooibos. The former undergoes only minimal oxidation. The latter, Rooibos Organic Tea among them, is more processed, though naturally.
  • Consumption dates back to pre-colonial times when the indigenous Khoisan people drank it for Rooibos Tea benefits. Little has changed today.

Is Rooibos Tea Organic?

The term “Organic” refers to any agricultural product grown without pesticides or insecticides, bio-engineered genes and petroleum / sewage-based fertilisers.

Our Organic Rooibos Loose Tea meets that standard. This means that it protects the environmental state of the land in and around estates, as well as the welfare of workers, while promoting biodiversity.

Does Organic Rooibos Tea Have Caffeine?

Few types of Herbal Tea contain caffeine, the exception to the rule being Yerba Mate. Rooibos Tea, in other words, is 100% caffeine free.

But is it a good thing or a bad thing? It depends on your perspective. Should you need help getting out of bed in the morning, you might be better off with so-called “real” Tea or Fresh Coffee. Otherwise, you’ve chosen exceptionally well here.

How to Make Organic Rooibos Tea

1, Put Organic Rooibos Loose Leaf Tea into a Tea Infuser or Filter.

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

3, Pour freshly boiled water at 100°C over the leaves.

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

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

Tasting Notes: Imparts a gentle sweetness with notes of honey, nuts and caramel.

Organic Rooibos Tea Benefits

It turns out that your new favourite cuppa can benefit your health as much as it supports mother nature. The reason is its wealth in vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants.

Among them are Aspalathin, Calcium, Copper, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Potassium, Quercetin and Zinc. These combined can combat free radicals in the body, thereby reducing the risk of developing numerous chronic conditions.

Furthermore, its quercetin content, in particular, has antihistamine properties, which block the release of histamine from mast cells to curb common symptoms of seasonal allergies.

The proof comes from a 2001 study published in Bioscience, Biotechnology and Biochemistry. Researchers found that Rooibos Tea is as efficient at treating allergies as antihistamine medicines. And there’s more.

Its abundance in alpha hydroxy acid, when applied topically to the skin, can alleviate pimples, blackheads and even wrinkles. Scientists at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, can explain its potential here.

They discovered the effectiveness of Organic Loose Rooibos Tea in protecting against the degeneration of preadipocytes, which are cells found in fat tissue.
