Have you ever tried our Berry Confection
? This rooibos blend has been on our menu since the beginning, but it doesn’t always get the love we think it deserves! Berry Confection is a decadent blend or red rooibos, white chocolate, black currants, and hibiscus. It’s delicious, and it’s good for you, too.
Grown only in South Africa, Rooibos is a botanical rich in polyphenols, antioxidants that are also present in the tea leaf. Polyphenols have anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties, so they help your body fight colds and infections and support a healthy immune system. New studies have also suggested rooibos has near the same antioxidant content as green tea!
Although it is brewed like tea, Rooibos does not actually contain any portion of the tea plant and is often mistakenly referred to as “red tea.” For this reason, it’s also naturally caffeine-free. If you are looking to cut caffeine and stay hydrated, rooibos is a great choice. Our Berry Confection is delicious hot or iced.
Rooibos is becoming increasingly popular in the United States due to its mild flavor and purported health benefits. Not only does it contain a high concentration of antioxidants, but several new scientific studies have linked Rooibos to the relief of allergy symptoms and to helping aid digestion. Rooibos is also a potential source of Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
