A mouth-watering, lemon-scented rooibos infusion.  Naturally sweet and citrussy, with no added sugar, this brew really is a ray of sunshine. Just when you think this Pud Without Sin can’t sound any better, we’ve added some lemon verbena and chamomile, said to be good for easing anxiety and improving sleep quality. Sweet dreams.

Rooibos is the main ingredient in Lemon Drizzle tea, a herb that is super-charged with health benefits.

 

What is rooibos?

Pronounced ‘Roy-Boss’, rooibos is a herbal tea that is naturally caffeine-free and bursting with antioxidants. This rich, nutty brew with a dark copper hue is also low in tannins, a chemical often present in less premium black tea and green tea that can cause a bitter flavour and interfere with iron absorption. 

 

The Rooibos (red bush) plant is only grown in one place, the Cederberg region near Cape Town, South Africa. If we could grow rooibos in the UK, we would!  The leaves and stems are taken from the flowering shrub and crushed before leaving to ferment and dry in the sun, a process that has remained virtually unchanged for 300 years.  The distinct red colour is derived from this fermentation process.

 

What are the benefits of rooibos?

Rooibos really packs a punch when it comes to health benefits. 

  • Rooibos is naturally caffeine-free and, with its full-bodied taste, is a perfect substitution for black tea.
  • Rooibos is low in tannins, a chemical that can interfere with iron absorption.
  • Rooibos is packed full of antioxidants, which may provide anti-cancer benefits.
  • One antioxidant, aspalathin, present in rooibos may help balance blood sugar levels, good news for those at risk of Diabetes.
  • The high amounts of flavanol in rooibos may help keep our hearts healthy due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Preliminary studies suggest that rooibos may help slow the speed of decline in bone density.

    :

    This tea with a dash of milk was the nicest cup of tea I’ve ever drunk. It was like I was eating a liquid form of cake. I heard about this tea on Absolute Radio when they compares to Yorkshire Malted Biscuit tea. There is no comparison. Will be buying more asap.

    This tea is amazing! As well as being refreshing and cooling its also a nice treat and feels like a tea version of a dessert! I’m not often a tea drinker but I will definitely always purchase this tea!
