While other teas have an acquired taste, rooibos tea has a sweet, mild flavor profile with notes of honey and vanilla. The red beverage is one of the most palate-pleasing types of tea. In addition to the flavor, the tea is packed with health benefits that will earn it a space in your morning (or evening) routine.
For centuries, South Africans have turned to rooibos as a medicinal aid. It is used as a natural remedy to settle stomach upset, relieve eczema, reduce skin allergies, promote better sleep and soothe infant colic.
Its anti-inflammatory powers and antioxidant content also show promise in helping to protect against many diseases, including cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Rooibos tea may even help with weight loss.
