caffeine free & naturally sweet
Rooibos tea (roy-bows) is a smooth and naturally honey flavored herbal tisane made from a plant called rooibostee, or rooiboshtee, which translates to "red bush tea." The bush only grows in the Cederberg Mountains of South Africa. This tea is naturally caffeine free and perfect for fall because of its wonderful amber hue and natural sweetness. Rooibos is known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

The more you know:
Rooibos oxidizes much like red and green chile! Red rooibos goes through a long oxidation process, fully turning the leaves a red color. Red rooibos has a full bodied flavor with caramel and honey notes and steeps into an amber-hued cup of tea. Green rooibos has a more delicate, herbal flavor and steeps into a light orange-yellow cup of tea.
