What Is Rooibos?
It is not a tea, but an infusion of herbs from the fermentation of the leaves of a shrub called Aspalathus linearis that gives it its characteristic reddish hue.
Rooibos tea is very common in restaurants, bars, or cafes (and of course in stores) but it is not yet as famous as other infusions. This infusion is originally from South Africa where it is especially appreciated and consumed daily for its health benefits.
It is an infusion that has an intense flavor but as it has no theine or caffeine it is an ideal option to drink in the afternoon and even at night before going to bed.
You can drink it hot or cold in summer and you can add honey, vegetable milk, cardamom seeds, juices, and a cinnamon stick… but first let it rest for 5 minutes!
