Health Information

Redbush is naturally infused with health giving properties - it contains no additives, colourings, artificial preservatives or calories. Redbush is also naturally caffeine free, i.e. it does not undergo any chemical process to remove the caffeine, it is also extremely low in tannin, on average less than half that of regular black teas (Camellia sinensis).

Tannin is a substance which can affect your ability to absorb and store essential iron, which may be of particular importance to growing children or if you are suffering with anaemia, are pregnant or on a calorie controlled diet.

It also means that it lacks that bitter aftertaste present in many black teas, so you do not need to add a sweetener.

Apartheid, and the many trade restrictions this brought, kept Redbush Tea from much of the outside world, but it is now rapidly growing in popularity.

In South Africa Redbush, or literally in Afrikaans - rooibos tea, is something of a national drink. You will find it in every restaurant and coffee shop, on average South Africans drink about 5 cups a day, and it has about a 40% share of their hot drinks market. It is enjoyed everywhere by adults and children alike, not only as a refreshing beverage but also as a tasty addition to many dishes.
