Rooibos, or Redbush, was long sold as “African red tea”, though of course it is not tea at all. Rooibos does, however, steep to a very robust, rich cup that is an excellent caffeine-free substitute for tea, either on its own or in blends. Rooibos presents earthy, toasty flavors and a rich finish, with good body. It is bolder and more robust than its cousin, Heuningbos, and is just as excellent as a relaxing warm drink before bedtime.
