How It Works:

Rooibos (Red-Bush) leaf, called the Tea of Africa, is from the fine, needle-like leaves of Aspalathus linearis, which grows on the high mountain ranges of South African Cape region. The leaves make a distinctive tasty, reddish brown aromatic tea that is often used as a coffee substitute. Rooibos is naturally caffeine-free and has less than half the tannins of regular tea so the flavor is mellow and rich without sharp or bitter notes.

Trade in wild Rooibos tea began shortly after 1900, with Rooibos tea cultivation beginning in the 1930's. Rooibos tea is served throughout the world, even in the tea-loving countries of England and Japan. Because the tea is less bitter and slightly sweet on its own, little added sweetening is required making it a good option for those watching their calories. It is also considered to be an excellent thirst-quencher as an iced tea in the warmer months of the year.

Rooibos tea, like green and black tea, has been found to be rich in anti-oxidants and flavonoids. In fact, Rooibos tea has been found to have as much as 50 times more SOD than Green Tea. Rooibos tea contains no caffeine and therefore has a soothing effect on the central nervous system. Rooibos tea has anti-spasmodic properties. It also supplements the daily amounts of calcium, manganese and especially fluoride, needed for the development of strong teeth and bones. It contains zinc and alpha-hydroxy acid, which promotes healthy skin and magnesium which is necessary for a healthy nervous system.

Suggested Use:

The best way to make a good cup of tea is by the infusion method. Place one tea bag in a cup and add no more than 6 oz. of boiling water. Let steep for 3 minutes. Press the bag before removing to enhance flavor. Consider combining with Rose Hips Tea

Iced Tea - Microwave: Put 8 teabags in a quart jar of water and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Let steep for an additional 8-10 minutes, remove teabags and chill.
Sun Tea: Put 8 teabags in a covered quart jar of water and allow to stand on a window sill in the sun for 6-8 hours. Remove teabags and chill.

Add honey to sweeten.

Alvita Teas

In 1922, a group of alfalfa enthusiasts who believed that alfalfa's rich green foliage and deep root system contained "Vitamines" and minerals essential for good health innovated the way the plant was consumed by providing alfalfa in tea bags. The abbreviation of alfalfa and vitamins quickly led to the brand name "Alvita," and thus the Alvita Tea Company was born.
