makes the taste enjoyable to almost all tea lovers. When properly brewed, a cup of
Rooibos tea will be a rich red color and have a sweet, nutty flavor. Although it is
usually served with milk and sugar or honey, many people find that it is sweet enough
to not need sugar. Because it will not become bitter if steeped too long, some places
let it steep for days!

Benefits to Drinking Rooibos tea

Because Rooibos contains no caffeine and no added colors or preservatives, it is
considered a natural beverage. The tea leaves are high in antioxidants, which can
boost your immune system. They are also rich in the minerals copper, iron and
potassium, calcium, fluoride, zinc, manganese, alpha-hydroxyl (for healthy skin) and
magnesium (for the nervous system).It is an excellent addition to your diet, and
many people are turning to Rooibos because of its healthful nature. Rooibos has been
shown to aid in health problems such as insomnia, irritability, headaches, nervous
tension, and hypertension. It is becoming more popular in the western countries
among the health conscious consumer.

Brewing Rooibos Tea

Rooibos tea is brewed just like black teas. It is very easy to brew a delicious cup of
this healthful drink.


Although this is a rarer tea than black or green teas, it is certainly one that you should
consider when you want to try a new variety. With its health benefits and delicious
taste, tea lovers should find this tea one that they will drink time and again. It is great
as an iced tea and mixed with fruit juices. So sit back, relax, and try some soon!
