The herbal tea made from rooibos (pronounced Roy-Boss) has been a popular drink in Southern Africa for generations. The plant, Aspalathus linearis, is grown only in a small area in the Western Cape province of South Africa, but during recent years rooibos has become popular in other parts of the world as well. There are two varieties of rooibos tea. One is referred to as red rooibos and the other is green rooibos. Typically, rooibos leaves are oxidized before they are used to make red rooibos tea. This process, gives them the familiar reddish-brown color and the slightly sweet taste. An alternative treatment of the leaves and twigs does not include the fermentation or oxidation step and produces what is referred to as green rooibos. The tea made from unfermented rooibos has a yellow tan color. The green rooibos tea possesses a milder taste. Rooibos tea is a concentrated source of antioxidants and flavonoids. In fact, Rooibos tea has been found to have as much as 50 times more Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) than Green Tea. It also has other antioxidants not found in other teas like aspalathin and nothofagin. It is naturally mineral rich, caffeine free and has low tannin levels compared to black and green teas.
