Rooibos Tea Collection
Rooibos (pronounced ROY-bos, Afrikaans for "red bush"; scientific name Aspalathus linearis) is a broom-like member of the legume family of plants growing in South Africa's fynbos.
The plant is used to make a herbal tea called rooibos tea, bush tea (esp. Southern Africa), redbush tea (esp. UK), South African red tea, or red tea. The product has been popular in Southern Africa for generations and is now consumed in many countries. It is sometimes spelled rooibosch in accordance with the old Dutch etymology, but this does not change the pronunciation.
Rooibos is all-natural and contains no additives, preservatives or colorants. It is naturally free of caffeine, is high in antioxidants, and has been successfully used to treat the symptoms of colic in infants. Rooibos can relieve stomach and digestive disorders such as nausea, vomiting, heartburn, cramps and constipation in adults.
