The Benefits of Rooibos Tea
Rooibos has somehow made it up here in Canada, although it is originally from South Africa. It is a bush plant also known as red bush that makes the most popular tea in this African nation. People there enjoy their Rooibos tea the same way as a lot of people like to consume their black tea - with added milk and sugar to taste.
In this blog we wanted to cover a bit more about why you should make rooibos tea a staple in your tea collection as well. So, lets start:
1.) Rooibos is considered an herbal "tea" and is caffeine-free.
If you're looking for a tea without the caffeine buzz or just for a tisane to have right before bed, you may have found your tea. Rooibos tea has a naturally light body with medium dark liquor that looks like black tea and is often drank plain, with milk and sugat or on its own or mixed. It is also often blended with a variety of flavours for a delicious infusion.
2.) Rooibos relieves stress.
Rooibos tea is known to relieve stress and nervous tension. Having it after a hard day at work, this warm drink soothes and calms for a good night sleep.
3.) Rooibos has great nutritional benefits.
Rooibos tea is rich in many mineral contents such as iron, calcium, potassium, copper, manganese, zinc, magnesium and alpha hydroxy acid. It also contains antioxidants, that we all know how much our bodies need to manage the damaging free radicals.
4.) Rooibos for beautiful, glowing skin.
Rooibos naturally contains zinc and alpha hydroxy acids which are known to help clarify the skin. Who doesn't want clear skin at the end of the day?
