Redbush Tea is produced by The Redbush Tea Company who obviously specialise in this type of tea. There are other brands who produce this type of tea, but in my opinion, this one is the best.
Their tea is an exclusive blend of the finest South African tea from the Rooibos bush. It is naturally caffeine free, which makes it an ideal tea for drinking at any time of the day or night.
A percentage of the profits from the sale of this tea are donated to The Kalahari People's Fund to support the indigenous peoples of the Kalahari (www.kalaharipeoples.org).
The tea is sold in boxes of 40 teabags, 100g, for around £1.69.
Brewed in exactly the same way as other teas, this tea is very refreshing, and you can drink it 'black' or with a little milk. It is naturally slightly sweeter, and there is no bitterness, therefore it does not need to be sweetened, unless, of course, you prefer sweet tea! When brewed it has a deep red colour as opposed to being very dark brown or black as in other teas. This can stain tea-cups a little, but it is easily washed clean.
If you are looking for a healthier option in teas, you may like to try this one. I have tried green tea and dislike the taste immensely, but this one is very nice.
