On a personal note:
After living in South Africa for 5 years, I adopted drinking Rooibos tea as a daily part of my life. We always have Rooibos loose leaves in the tea cupboard. It is my favorite tea and a family staple. I have been sharing the tea my children since babies to help them with digestive issues, build their immune system and generally soothe their soul.
Enjoy a cup of Rooibos, you won't be disappointed. Add some honey, milk, cinnamon, vanilla, cardamon and whatever you can think of. Rooibos tea is a great winter tea and is also delicious as an ice tea in the summer.
