Rooibos meaning ‘red bush’; is a broom-like member of the plant family Fabaceae that grows in South Africa‘s fynbos. The leaves are used to make a herbal tea that is called by the names: Rooibos (especially in Southern Africa), Bush Tea, Red Tea, or Redbush Tea (predominantly in Great Britain).
The tea has been popular in Southern Africa for generations, and since the 2000s has gained popularity internationally. The tea has a taste and color somewhat similar to Hibiscus tea, with more or less of an earthy flavor like Yerba Mate.
It’s a flavorful, caffeine-free alternative to black and green tea.
What’s more, advocates praise Rooibos for its potential health benefits, claiming that its antioxidants can protect against cancer, heart disease, and stroke.
