Rooibos tea, also known as Redbush tea for the red hue it takes on during natural fermentation, is a caffeine-free, herbal tea grown only in South Africa’s Western Cape Province. The unique flavor is compelling enough, tasting slightly of honey and caramel, but its health benefits are what has everyone talking, due to its ability to treat conditions such as headaches, eczema, hypertension, allergies, insomnia, diabetes, arthritis, and the list goes on!
Packed with alpha hydroxy acids and minerals, along with a potent antioxidant content, it supports and strengthens skin from the inside out while fighting premature aging, even improving mental focus and clarity.
