What is Rooibos Tea?
Rooibos is a shrub unique to South Africa. Also known as red tea because of its colour, it should not be confused with Pu Erh Tea (Camellia sinensis). Rooibos Tea is theine-free tea that can be drunk by everyone. This tea does not turn bitter if left to brew for too long. Our Rooibos or Red Bush contains a high concentration of flavonoids, which makes it a powerful detox ingredient for those who want to lose weight. Post-workout, Rooibos Tea is an excellent ally for recovering from the damage caused by injuries. Besides, it helps to hydrate the organism and to reinforce the defences.
The species “Aspalathus linearis” is cultivated by 400 local growers, exclusively in the beautiful South African Cederberg Mountains. The term “linearis” is derived from the fact that the leaves of Rooibos grow in a long, pointed shape. Rooibos Tea is usually consumed with a slice of lemon, honey and sugar in this country. It is also customary for people to reuse the same infusion and reheat it during the first 48 hours. Most of the exportation is to the United States of America and Germany.
Originally from Central America and Southeast Asia, the lemongrass belongs to the Poaceae family and is highly appreciated in the Caribbean, India, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Australia. This delicious rustic herb is adept in mild environments with the presence of humidity and good sun exposure. In several countries, it is used as a vegetable and aromatic herb in various culinary dishes combined with grated coconut, curry, fish, ginger, and meat. Fast-growing lemongrass is a plant that contributes to physical and mental well-being. Lemongrass tea is recommended for hot and cold days.
In Suriname (a South American country), this wonderful herb is used to fight cough, asthma, headaches, and fever. While in the West, it is used as a digestive tonic and natural calming of the nervous system.
