Organic Vanilla Rooibos
About This Blend
Rooibos comes from the rugged slopes of the Western Cape Mountains in South Africa. In 1772, botanist Carl Humberg discovered that the locals of the Cape's Cedarberg region made a sweet tasting "tea" of the indigenous "red bush" plant. They picked the stems and leaves, bruised them with hammers, left them in piles to ferment, and then dried them in the sun. Traditionally drunk by the region's Khoi peoples, the infusion tastes like black tea yet has no caffeine, is low in tannin, and is packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Enjoy our signature Organic Vanilla Rooibos loose leaf tea, enhanced with a sweet touch of Madagascar vanilla.
TEALEAVES Organic Vanilla Roiboos does not contain any caffeine as it does not come from the camellia sinensis plant.
As there is no caffeine/stimulant in rooibos, just like most other herbals, drinking an herbal infusion counts as an enhanced water intake.
Rooibos does not contain any ingredients that would cause one to feel sleepy or drowsy. However, due to this blend's herbal nature, this uncaffeinated tea does not have the same "energy" enhancing properties that typical caffeinated teas will have.
