Rooibos with pieces of apple and rose blossom. A nice tea for cold days.
Rooibos (Aspalathus linearis) is a plant in the legume family (Leguminosae). The plant occurs naturally in the vicinity of the Cederberg (South Africa).
When the plant is 1.5 years old, it can be harvested for the first time and after 10 years the bush is at its end and dies. The leaves of the plant are picked, mashed and placed in the sun for oxidation. In the last phase, the rooibos acquires its reddish brown color.
Rooibos contains no caffeine and little taninne and is rich in antioxidants, vitamin C, calcium and iron.
This is a seasonal tea and is not always available all year round.
