Also called "red bush tea" or "red tea" this warm, fruity and cinnamon-like herbal is high in vitamin C and antioxidants, and caffeine free. The rooibos plant is native to South Africa. It is processed and prepared much like tea, and has long been used as an alternative, at first because it was cheaper and more recently because it does not have caffeine. Tasty on its own, or with milk and honey. Frequently used as a base for blends.
