ROOIBOS & HONEYBUSH

The Cedarburg area in the Cape of South Africa, is home to one of the most unique and valuable additions to the world of herbal tea. The indigenous wonder herb of South Africa is known as "Rooibos" (ROY-boss). Literally translated from Afrikaans, it means "Red Bush". Rooibos is full of polyphenols and flavonoids, which help protect the body from free radicals that weaken natural defenses and eventually lead to aging and the onset of disease. Scientific studies indicate that drinking Rooibos daily can reward you with powerful antioxidants, twice the amount of that in green tea, that help build the immune system and create a healthier, longer life.

RED TEA contains no caffeine and has a soothing effect on the central nervous system.

RED TEA is completely pure, natural and contains no additives, preservatives or colorants.

RED TEA benefits the management of allergies like hay fever, asthma and eczema.

RED TEA has anti-spasmatic properties which help relieve stomach and digestive problems like nausea, vomiting, heartburn and stomach ulcers.

RED TEA has a soothing effect when applied directly to the skin as a tincture or can relieve inching, rashes and sunburn when added to a bath.

RED TEA supplements the daily amounts of calcium, manganese and especially fluoride needed for the development of strong teeth and bones.

RED TEA contains zinc and alpha hydroxyl acid, which promotes healthy skin and magnesium, which is necessary for a healthy nervous system.

HONEYBUSH cousin to Rooibos made from the flowers of the red bush, shares many of the healing properties of Rooibos and, in addition, has long been used as a natural remedy for diabetes. Both teas are considered herbal as they are naturally caffeine free. Both teas may be served hot with milk and sugar. Both make delicious iced teas.
