Organic Rooibos & Honeybush
Rooibos has been getting an amazing amount of press recently. As people begin searching for healthy alternatives to soft drinks, rooibos, with its polyphenols, iron, zinc, fluoride, calcium and magnesium fits the bill. Enjoyed in South Africa for centuries, rooibos was first made available to Westerners by a Russian émigré named Benjamin Ginsberg. He recognized that its beneficial properties and wonderful taste made it an excellent caffeine free alternative to traditional caffeinated teas.

Rooibos was discovered growing wild at the turn of the 19th century by people of the Cedarberg region. Rooibos leaves were cut, bruised, fermented and sun dried, later to be infused to provide a delicious beverage. Naturally caffeine free, and low in tannins, rooibos tea doesn't interfere with the absorption of iron, protein and other healthy minerals....From £2.25
Honeybush is so named because the flowers smell of honey. The taste of honeybush tea is similar to that of rooibos but a little sweeter.
The African all-rounder offers unexpected advantages. Both Rooibos and Honeybush are free of caffeine and tannic acid. For this reason the preparation is very easy. Too much tea or longer brewing times do not have such big effects and the infusion remains perfectly enjoyable.
