Why Should I Drink Rooibos Vanilla Tea?
Rooibos (Aspalathus Linearis) is a herb that grows exclusively in the Cederberg region of South Africa. The plant can survive some of the harshest conditions of the continent, experiencing temperatures of over 40°C in the summer and well below zero in the winter. When harvested, processed and brewed, it goes by many names. This includes "Red Tea", owing to the colour of the processed leaf, and "Bush Tea", referring to the plant's overall appearance.
Rooibos suits the addition of countless ingredients, unlike some Herbal Teas. Vanilla is just one of many, with others including caramel, oranges, gingerbread and even eucalyptus! Our Rooibos Vanilla Tea, however, is undoubtedly one of the most popular.

Health Benefits of Rooibos Vanilla Tea
In the 1960s, a South African mother discovered the most famous Rooibos Tea benefit of them all: allergy relief. This same benefit applies to Rooibos Vanilla Tea as much as any other. The story goes that Dr Annique Theron had a 14-month-old daughter who was severely susceptible to a variety of allergies.
Because of her symptoms, she hadn't slept in days. In desperation, Annique decided to warm her milk with Rooibos Tea. It proved a tremendous success, with Lorinda, her daughter, sleeping for three straight hours.
Why did this happen? Researchers believe that it's due to a bioflavonoid called quercetin. This compound, found in all Rooibos Teas, including this one, has antihistamine properties. These properties block the release of histamine from mast cells to curb common symptoms of seasonal allergies. Indeed, drinking Rooibos Vanilla Tea may help to keep the 'sniffles' at bay!
