Reputed Health benefits of South African Red Bush...
South African Red Bush "Rooibos" (Aspalathus linearis) is grown, harvested & dried for tea and other health products in the Cedarberg Mountains of South Africa. The leaves of the plant are green until harvested & dried, when they turn a beautiful rich, red color. Aspalathus linearis is a member of the legume family with reputed & amazing health benefits. It is completely caffeine free.
The leaf creates a full bodied tea like beverage that is similar in color & body of true tea. It is delightful hot or cold, with or without milk, sugar or honey. It is brewed like tea (Camellia sinensis) with boiling water poured over the leaves, either in a teapot or infuser. Steeping times range from 5 minutes up. Since this plant is lower in tannin than true tea, it does not become bitter if brewed for longer than a few minutes. It makes a lovely iced tea that can remain in the refrigerator for several days without spoiling. Many South Africans blend it with fruit juices for a special treat. Tea Time Garden South African Red Bush is completely natural & is Kosher Certified. We also have Rooibos blends: Lemon Ginger Rooibos, Christmas Spice Tea, Rooibos Provence and Spinner's Brew-Herbal Chai.
