Confession- I’ve been having a love affair with Rooibos tea for the last 5 years it has been my go to beverage of choice. 

If you are like me and looking for that refreshing drink without the added calories, then I would suggest drinking Rooibos Tea or Red Tea as its most commonly known as.

 Rooibos tea is obtained from a plant that grows in abundance in the Cederbeg mountain range of South Africa. Rooibos tea has a naturally sweet flavor and nutritional benefits.

 Red rooibos tea is an excellent thirst quencher and does wonders for active people like professional athletes, hyperactive children and those who travel often, whether for pleasure or business. Most people prefer to drink rooibos tea in its natural form without any sweeteners, and those who simply want a refreshing drink without a caffeine boost, rooibos is the ideal choice. This tea is worth trying. 

I always have a box of Freshpak Rooibos Tea and I buy loose rooibos leaves from Sri Lanka on my yearly travels


How do I prepare my special Rooibos Tea?

 15 grams loose Rooibos tea leaves

Honey or Brown Sugar

Boiling Water



Place the Rooibos tea in a tea pot and pour boiling water over the tea. Leave to stand for 4 to 6 minutes.

Strain the tea in a second teapot using a sieve.

Add honey and lemon juice for extra sweetness and flavor
