Rooibos Tea – Wellness In Just One Sip
Long enjoyed as a fruity mild-flavoured beverage by the local indigenous people of South Africa, the popularity of Rooibos tea has recently surged due to the discovery of its high antioxidant content and myriad of health benefits.
After harvesting, Rooibos tea leaves will undergoing a natural fermentation process where it begins to turn into its signature vibrant amber colour while developing a slightly sweet and fruity taste.
The fermented tea ages well and is able to be stored for long periods of time without any deterioration in its quality, flavour or taste.
Sourced directly from the Cederberg Mountains of South Africa’s Western Cape, our NutriHerbs & Earthy Green Organic Rooibos Tea ranges are made from only the best quality tea leaves available. It has a unique sweet and deep russet colour which makes it an excellent naturally caffeine-free alternative to tea without any unpleasant side effects.
Another form of Roobois tea is the Green Roobois tea that has been dried before it can undergo its fermentation process. Being unfermented, the tea retains a grassier and fresher taste but boasts antioxidant levels that are 10 times higher than Red Roobois tea. With much higher levels of antioxidants, Green Rooibos provides all the same health and nutritional benefits as Red Roobois but at a higher potency.
