Red Tea (Rooibos). Caffeine free.

All our Red teas (Rooibos) are naturally CAFFEINE FREE. They are NOT a caffeinated tea that has gone through a decaffeination process. When a caffeinated tea goes through a decaffeination process that does remove some caffeine from the tea, but not 100% of it. So if you want to drink a tea that has is caffeine free, you should have a tea that contains no caffeine to start with.  Rooibos is such a tea.  Native to South Africa Rooibos (Aspalathus linearis) is a shrub with long, needle-shaped leaves that turn red upon fermentation. It’s delicious and very high in antioxidants.  When the leaves are harvested the leaves are bruised with hammers, ferment and then dried. The result is a red, astringent tea that refreshes and does not cause jitters. Research shows that rooibos possesses antimutagenic, anticarcinogenic, anti-inflammatory and antiviral activity. If you want to do something a little different with your red tea, prepare it iced, then mix part red tea and part lemonade.
