Rooibos tea comes from the leaves of a shrub called Aspalathus linearis, which is predominantly grown in southern Africa. Rooibos translates as ‘red bush’ from Afrikaans and when made into tea, it is known to be full of health benefits.
Packed full of antioxidants, rooibos tea is a caffeine-free alternative to black and green tea. A rooibos infusion made with natural ingredients will be low in tannins and oxalic acid, making it a tea that your body will thank you for. There is also evidence that the antioxidants in rooibos tea have the power to improve heart health and blood pressure.
A natural rooibos infusion will cast a relaxing spell over your body, allowing its organic benefits to get to work on your body. With this healthy, organic base, our rooibos blood orange tea is the perfect solution, if you’re looking for a new, all natural, soothing beverage.
The blood orange brings an intense flavour to the tea. It gives the infusion a sweet citrus taste that is shot through with a tangy sharpness. Our rooibos blood orange tea also contains safflowers, which add a rich floral aroma with a subtle dusky flavour.
