Rooibos - also called red tea
Rooibos is the popular national drink in South Africa. It contains no caffeine or tannic acid, is aromatic and rich in vitamin C, as well as iron and potassium. The taste is sweet and lightly spiced, making it suitable both pure and flavored. Rooibos plants have green leaves, but during fermentation, where only spring water and the strong African sun are used, the leaves become red.
Like Rooibos, Honeybush grows in South Africa, but where Rooibos is cultivated, Honeybush grows wild, on the small hillside in the Long Kloof district of South Africa.
The leaves are pale yellow and aromas of honey; hence the name. The taste is extremely comfortable. Fresh and sweet.
HerbTea, like Rooibos, does not contain the tea leaves from the bush. Herbal-tea, on the other hand, consists of herbs, fruits and flowers that can give the aroma to the drink.
Herbal-tea can easily withstand boiling water as it doesn't get bitter. Moreover, most herbal teas can easily be in hot water for longer periods of time as they only become more powerful. Of popular herbal tea in our assortment include Cool Mint, Sweet Lemon, Licquorice-tea, Dragon Mint and Tiger Mint.
