What is Rooibos tea?
Rooibos is a shrub unique to South Africa. It is also known as Red Tea because of its colour, however, it should not be confused with Pu Erh Red Tea (Camellia sinensis). Rooibos tea does not contain theine and can therefore be taken by anyone. It is a tea that does not become bitter if it is steeped for too long.
Sunflower – is a dicotyledonous plant of the Asteraceae family, native to western North America. It is believed that its first production began around 4500 years ago through the indigenous peoples. The scientific name given to the sunflower is “Helianthus annus” which translates to “sunflower”. The chromatic density of the sunflower imparts happiness and positivity. The sunflower is known for being a plant that grows towards the sun until it dies, and that can bloom for 365 days at temperatures between 18º and 30º.
Carrot – is a vegetable belonging to the Apiaceae family, possibly originating in Afghanistan. According to historical records, carrots have been cultivated for over two thousand years. However, the carrot we know today is a little different, in terms of colour, from what the Greeks and Romans would have known. It would have been in the 16th century, through the Dutch royal family of the Orange Dynasty, that the carrot took on the well-known orange colour as it was the colour of the empire. Previously, there were only purple, yellow, red, and white carrot varieties. The orange colour of the carrot would have been the result of the fusion of different varieties of carrots.
Although little mentioned, the carrot contains reduced energy content. As for its medicinal properties, the consumption of carrots can contribute to the improvement of vision and intestinal flora. It can also promote the strengthening of defences and prevent the development of cardiovascular diseases.
