Why Rooibos Tea Is Just So Good For You
Everyone wants to be healthy but in the world of fast food and quick fixes, our health is often compromised. Rooibos tea can affect your
health in a very good way, so why not give it a try.
This tea was often served in its native South Africa as a substitute for black tea, where it
is known as "bush tea". It has a nicely rounded taste and is reminiscent of blended black tea. You can serve it with milk or lemon or enjoy it
pure. Rooibos means red bush because the green leaves turns red after fermentation. This wonderful herbal tea contains no caffeine and no
additives or preservatives. It does contain antioxidants, copper, potassium fluoride, iron, calcium, zinc and manganese. It has been known to
have many health benefits which can help with allergies, asthma, hay fever, headaches, hypertension and insomnia. Mothers give it to their
infants when stomach cramps and colic are an issue. It has also been used to help with eczema – in fact you can use cold rooibos to help heal
skin irritations by bathing your skin with it. It boosts the immune system and has anti-aging qualities! This tea can be enjoyed hot or cold – in
fact it’s a fabulous summer drink served with ice and lemon – adding orange juice also makes a great fruity tea drink on hot days. You can buy it
online. Visit the many tea websites – there are even ones dedicated to it – and have it delivered to your door.
So please add this wonderful healthy herbal tea to your tea cupboard – it will soon become a favorite for your family and friends, to be
enjoyed hot or iced throughout the year.
