We came across this tea from a great many kombucha brewers who were looking for a caffeine free tea for brewing their kombucha mushroom. We tried it and we are pleasantly surprised at the results. The taste as a simple tea is very refreshing. When brewed with the kombucha produces a distinct pleasant taste reminisces of Thai Iced Tea.

4 ounce bulk herbal tea. nice pleasant taste. Great alternative to caffine - caffeine free - and loads of health benefit.
Rooibos Tea is not "Camellia Sinensis". Not a real tea. It is a herbal tea, so the benefits - can not be compared to real tea (Camellia Sinensis). Rooibos is a natural herb from South Africa, where it is also known as “Red Bush”. As such it is an excellent tea for Mormons, contains no caffeine and is very healthy. As far as I know it has not been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. However it would have many applications both as a pleasant tea to drink, as well as a tincture or salve for various dermatus diseases. Beneficial in the treatment of high blood pressure, diabetes, mellitus, atherosclerosis, allergic diseases, various dermatus diseases, liver diseases and cataracts.
Rooibos can strongly be recommended for people suffering from irritability, headaches, disturbed sleeping patterns, insomnia, nervous tension, mild depression or hypertension, as it contains no caffeine and has a soothing effect on the central nervous system. Benefits the stomach and indigestive problems like nausea, vomiting, heartburn, stomach ulcers and constipation. Has anti-spasmodic properties, thus relieving stomach cramps and colic in infants. A benefit in the management of allergies like hay fever, asthma and eczema. Rooibos has a soothing effect on the skin, relieving itching and certain skin irritations like eczema, nappy rash and acne when directly applied to the affected area.

Information from http://www.rooibosltd.co.za/
Two scientists from Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University have established that Rooibos protects preadipocytes - the predominant cells found in fat tissue - from degenerating. The study proved that Rooibos has the ability to partially restore the function of aged cells and that both fermented and green Rooibos can protect cells from severe oxidative stress. Rooibos could therefore reverse the onset of age-related diseases and even keep wrinkles at bay. This establishes Rooibos as an anti-aging proponent. It could also lead to a breakthrough in the field of regenerative medicines. These research findings have just been released
Also available loose leaf Certified Organic Rooibos Tea. Makes a great cup of tea and great alternative to coffee.
