The time has now come to slow down and to sip Rooibos tea with my beloved wife in the afternoons…

— Desmond Tutu

Although Rooibos tea is not officially a tea (this honor is reserved only for the processed leaves of the tea plant Camellia Sinensis), Rooibos definitely deserves a place in every tea collection.

Then why is Rooibos called tea? Because the leaf is actually processed in the same way after harvest as tea leaves and because the drink is prepared in the same way as the "real" tea.

Rooibos itself is soft and mild in taste, slightly nutty and with a natural sweetness. If you let rooibos steep longer, it will become full and rich, giving off a warm, woody and honey-like scent.

Rooibos is an incredibly versatile tea that goes well with most flavors and combines very well with herbs, spices, fruits and flowers. Whether you combine rooibos and vanilla, add chai spices to rooibos or make a combination with exciting fruits such as mango or dragon fruit, rooibos gives them a stage and lets these flavors shine without being upstaged. Because rooibos contains little tannin, it will not become bitter, which can happen with green and black tea.

Is rooibos healthy? Absolutely!

Rooibos is naturally caffeine-free and packed with antioxidants. The latter help the body to fight free radicals. Rooibos is also said to help strengthen the immune system, keep the sugar level in balance and have a calming effect in case of stomach and abdominal cramps. Small children as from the age of 6 months, suffering from colic, can be helped by drinking Rooibos tea.
