ROOIBOS

Rooibos (pronounced ROY-bus) is a naturally caffeine-free herbal plant that grows only in South Africa. Our premium-grade rooibos is sourced directly from artisan farmers ensuring superior freshness and flavor. Try our Natural Nilla, Honey Orange, or delicious Nectar Nirvana for a naturally sweet, delicious cup. Also known for its high mineral content, Rooibos is loaded with antioxidants. You can't over steep Rooibos and it blends well with other flavors such as teas containing nuts, herbs and fruits.

DRINK ROOIBOS TEA FOR THE HEALTH OF IT

  • LOWER YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE

    Rooibos tea is known to relieve stress, nervous tension, and hypertensive conditions. Hypertension is more commonly known as high blood pressure and rooibos tea acts as a bronchodilator. It not only relieves respiratory conditions but also lowers blood pressure, resulting in the prevention of dangerous cardiovascular diseases like heart attacks and atherosclerosis.

  • HELP CONTROL DIABETES

    The antioxidant Aspalathin found in rooibos tea can help balance blood sugar, improve insulin resistance and glucose absorption by muscles, and boost insulin secretion from the pancreas — a defensive shield against developing type II Diabetes. By balancing blood sugar, rooibos tea can also protect people that already have diabetes by preventing the spikes and drops in blood sugar that are detrimental to their overall health.

TEA TIPS

  • IN THE KITCHEN

    Try adding some rooibos to caramelized onions, to round out a sauce, or enhance your chili.

  • GRILLING

    Rooibos is actually an herb, so adding rooibos to the usual rub suspects, like salt, brown sugar, and garlic, adds a savory "Wait....Whaaaat?" note to quick-cooking meats like flank or skirt steak, as well as low-and-slow cooked cuts like pork shoulder and ribs.

  • SKIN CARE TIP

    Drinking rooibos tea creates a soothing effect on the skin and can help reduce skin irritation and keep skin free of common conditions like acne, redness, sunburn and eczema. To make an all-natural rooibos tea face wash, steep three cups of tea. Wash your face as soon as the tea cools to lukewarm. Or add a strong pot of this tea to your bath and soak for as long as you like.
