Straight from the fertile hills of South Africa, this delectable organic red bush tea is blended with organic vanilla oil to deliver the signature sweet and nutty taste that roobios is known and loved for.

Health benefits of organic red bush tea

Made from the leaves of the Aspalathus linearis plant, rooibos tea (pronounced "ROY-boss") is naturally decaffinated and rich in polyphenols, offering a whole host of health benefits.

Rooibos tea contains lots of vital minerals including magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc and alpha hydroxyl acid, along with high levels of vitamin C and powerful antioxidants.

Drinking a cup of organic rooibos tea can help to aid weight loss, improve the appearance of the skin, alleviate pain, soothe allergies and ease digestion. Research also suggests that red bush tea can support heart health and – when drunk without any added sweetener – may even help to control or prevent diabetes.
