Rooibos tea is also known as red tea or red bush tea.
It is made using leaves from a shrub called Aspalathus linearis, usually grown on the western coast of South Africa.
Rooibos is a herbal tea and is not related to green or black tea. Traditional rooibos is created by fermenting the leaves, which turns them a red-brown color.
Compared to regular black tea or green tea, rooibos is lower in tannins and naturally free from caffeine.
This refreshing beverage has woody, earthy undertones. Brew with freshly boiled water and infuse for 8-10 minutes.
