South Africa is the birthplace of a very beneficial plant. It can be called Rooibos or red tea. I do invite you to make some space in your kitchen for this unique plant as using it can bring you a lot of value.
Rooibos is the tea made from the leaves of a bush plant growing in South Africa. Initially, the leaves of those plants were used to make herbal drugs, which already gives you an idea of how healthy this tea is.
In a specific area of South Africa, settlers discovered that the delicate, leaves of the Aspalathus linearis plant make a tasty and aromatic drink. The leaves and delicate stems were chopped and bruised before being left to ferment and later dried in the African Sun. Today, the process of making Rooibos or Red Tea is much the same, but of course, the methods are now mechanised and modernised.
At the beginning of the 20th Century, a Russian immigrant became interested in Rooibos and realised that the plant had a selling potential. He started buying it from local farmers. The fact that the immigrant came from a family who had been in the tea industry in Europe for centuries provided him with the know-how to market this new “mountain tea”.
The beautiful thing about Red Tea is that it is naturally sweet and that it does not need sugar, which makes it the ideal replacement to the limitless number of espresso and teacups we drink during the day. Unfortunately, this doesn’t give you the same kick that caffeine does, so you won’t precisely be bouncing off the walls. However, the fact it has no caffeine makes it the perfect alternative to reduce the number of coffee cups you’re tempted to have in the day. As you know, excess caffeine has some effects, like restlessness and incapability to fall asleep and I am sure you want to avoid these. Drinking Red Tea is an excellent way to kick out the coffee dependency and cut down on sugar intake. Rooibos is also rich in alpha-hydroxy acid and zinc, two nutrients which might be potent for the dermis because they fight uneven skin tone, pimples and sunburn.
These two nutrients also have a positive effect on the prevention of hair loss, given that it removes the dead skin cells that are clogging the hair follicles, stopping any new hair from developing.
You can see Rooibos Red Tea at any gourmet store nowadays. It is no longer precisely the most affordable item. Nevertheless, it can bring a lot of value to discover if these miracle advantages kick in for you. Once you get your fingers on it though, enjoy the taste of Africa.
You can drink this tea by mixing it with some milk and even a little tiny bit of sugar. Or you can drink it just plain.
