Naturally caffeine FREE!

This is very important for anyone who is sensitive to caffeine as well as pregnant women, nursing mothers and children.

Since Rooibos is naturally caffeine-free, and it is untreated (as opposed to being subjected to the controversial decaffeination process), all of its healthful properties are preserved and could almost be considered a nutritional supplement. This herbal tea contains the following natural minerals and trace elements in a single cup:

• Vitamin C • Zinc • Manganese
• Potassium • Alpha-hydroxy • Magnesium
• Copper • Fluoride • Calcium

Furthermore ORGANIC Rooibos contains none of the following:

  • O% Preservatives
  • O% Additives
  • O% Coloring
  • O% Sweetener
  • O% Calories
  • O% Caffeine

ORGANIC Rooibos is grown and processed under strict international Organic conditions without the use of any of the following :

  • O% Herbicides
  • O% Fungicides
  • O% Pesticides

Consequently, ORGANIC Rooibos has the following benefits :

  • High in antioxidants - aspalathin and nothofagin
  • Contains flavonoids and phenolic acids - protects the body from damage by free radicals
  • Contains potent anti-inflammatories
  • Boosts the immune system

In addition, with very low levels of tannin, it allows for exceptionally long brew times( up to 12 hours ) without developing any of the bitterness of other teas. Rooibos also has a natural sweetness.

Unconfirmed studies are showing that the flavonoids contained in Green Rooibos are significantly higher and more effective than those found in traditional Green teas.

The astounding benefits of Rooibos have only recently been recognized globally by health practitioners and numerous scientists alike, who are currently conducting further studies on the potential benefits to the human body.

In March 2011 Rooibos was featured on Dr.Oz as well as Good Morning America for it's remarkable benefits.
