It is unfair to say that Rooibos or Redbush is a tea alternative as it is delicious in its own right and tastes quite different to tea. It is a refreshing, honey sweet and caffeine free drink with a cooling quality.

Rooibos is rich in a variety of compounds that make it a very healthy drink. The querceti and aspalathin contents are particularly interesting to scientists studying Rooibos.

Rooibos may have a protective effect on the cardiovascular system, help to control type 2 diabetes and is very rich in antioxidants.
