about rooibos tea
Tea Forté travels to the soul of South Africa to the vast vistas of the Cedarberg region near Cape Town to procure the many health promoting properties of the indigenous wonder herb called rooibos (ROY-boss). Researchers have discovered that drinking daily cups of rooibos tea can help boost the immune system with powerful polyphenols and flavonoids that protect the body from free-radicals that weaken natural defenses. Mistakenly referred to as tea, rooibos means "red bush" in Afrikaans language, and is an entirely different botanical species. Completely caffeine-free, rooibos tea can be enjoyed multiple times a day without any unpleasant side effects. Often used as a base ingredient in herbal blends, rooibos tea steeps up a distinctive rich- red color with wild blossom honey- like sweetness and notes of fruit that is delicious hot or iced.
