Also known as “red bush,” Rooibos is native to the mountainous regions of South Africa. It grows to a height of 6 feet and bears long, needlelike leaves. In late summer, the leaves are harvested, moistened, bruised and left to dry or “ferment” in the sun, a process which turns the tea a brick red color.
Rooibos is renown for being caffeine-free and has a very high antioxidant level, even when compared to green tea. It has a refreshing flavor and can be steeped for long periods without becoming bitter due to its low tannin content. Drink it plain or add milk and sugar for a different flavor.
