Green Rooibos

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Green rooibos comes from the same plant as the typical red rooibos does, but it is all in the processing that makes the difference between the two different teas. With the green rooibos the processing does not include the same bruising or oxidization of the leaves which result in the green appearance. Because of the difference in preparation the resulting tea cup is a lot different from the traditional rooibos.

The green rooibos cup of tea resembles a green cup of tea as it is lighter than its more processed tea brother. The first thing you will notice in the green rooibos tea cup is that its appearance is a lot lighter, which matches its fruity light flavor as well. The tea also has a sweeter taste than the red rooibos and a bit earthier of a taste. A great new experience if you are really looking to try out a new tea.

Rooibos and caffeine – the truth about it :)

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Rooibos is the new kid on the block for tisanes. You will notice that I make this clarification first and foremost, that rooibos is a tisane as it is not really a tea. If you are not familiar with this term then just take a quick gander over here to find out what is a tisane . Now going forward I will actually be referring to it as a tea… blasphemy you say. No not really, if people want to read it knowing that it is truly not a tea but a tisane then that is cool. I just don’t want to come off as one of those people in tea shops that correct you every time you ask for a chamomile tea and then they have to say actaulllyyyyy it is a tisane….  So if you know that rooibos is a tisane, cool, if not now you do. If you don’t care either way then keep on reading to find out the truth about rooibos and caffeine !

Unlike most teas, rooibos has no caffeine in it. It may be news to you, but you should know that rooibos caffeine is not merely news, it is good news. It is good and safe for everybody, for people of all ages and in all conditions. There are many rooibos health benefits to the brew and in this article we will just quickly go over the lack of caffeine and leave the additional discussion for a later day!

It is more appropriate to state that rooibos is not a tea, but a tisane (an herbal infusion) since it does not come from the tea plant. Instead, this beverage comes from the rooibos plant. Rooibos is a shrub that grows only in the land of Cape Town, South Africa. Today, rooibos is gaining popularity around the world due to its unique qualities and benefits. It is also known as red tea because of the color of its leaves and the color of the resulting beverage. Rooibos is available in loose leaf packages or in teabags. It can be served hot or cold. Bottled rooibos are also available and are best served ice cold.

Studies show that ingesting caffeine during pregnancy especially during the first three months of gestation has been linked to possible issues. Thais is why many turn to rooibos during pregnancy as there is no caffeine in the drink at all. Caffeine is present in beverages such as coffee, tea, and energy drinks. Rooibos has zero caffeine in it. Therefore, pregnant women can safely drink rooibos. Drinking rooibos has a relaxing effect for mothers and has a mild, sweet taste that can be enjoyed anytime.

Traditionally, rooibos has been used to treat infant colic. It is also used to alleviate constipation and remedy stomach problems such as nausea and vomiting. Rooibos can be safely taken by children, even infants. Since it has no caffeine, it does not cause palpitations and stomach irritation. Caffeine, when taken by children, can potentially cause hyperactivity which may later on cause children to develop fatigue and decreased attention span.

If caffeinated drinks can make you become alert, rooibos does the opposite. It helps you to be calm and feel relaxed. Drinking rooibos before bedtime can help you have a good night’s sleep. It could also save you from sleep disturbances and insomnia.

Moreover, coffees and teas contain tannins, chemical that block the absorption of iron. Rooibos contains very low tannins, in negligible amounts, even. Thus, rooibos can be safely drunk without having to worry about iron-deficiency anemia.

Now you’ve heard the good news about rooibos. Start making it a part of your lifestyle and share it to people who can potentially benefit from this information. Spread the good news!
