Ingredients: 100% Natural Green Rooibos (Aspalathus linearis).
Origin: South Africa
Green Rooibos is a new and very rare drink compared to traditional Red Rooibos. Today, drinking rooibos tea is not just related to medicinal purposes, as this plant is currently an ingredient in hundreds of delicious mixes that are increasingly appreciated for their flavor.
Although red rooibos and green rooibos share similar health benefits, their chemical composition is slightly different due to their oxidation process. Green Rooibos is dried immediately after harvest to preserve color, flavor and antioxidants.
Rooibos Verde comes exclusively from South Africa and has the scientific name "Aspalathus linearis", while green tea is grown in more than 70 countries around the world. Like green tea, green rooibos undergoes a heating process that stops the oxidation that darkens the tea and alters the chemical structure.
Green tea, like green rooibos, both contain high levels of antioxidants and can be beneficial to health. However, the antioxidants in them are different. Unlike green tea, green rooibos is completely caffeine free, which makes it a safe drink at night, before bed or for some pregnant and breastfeeding women.
In fact, Rooibos is generally one of the rare teas suitable for babies and children.
