Rooibos Tea

Definition: Rooibos Tea

Rooibos is a naturally-decaffeinated and full-bodied tea that comes from a bright-green needled shrub in South Africa. When the needles are processed they turn red, and in Afrikaans, rooibos actually means red bush.

Not only is rooibos low in tannins, but it has a strong aroma and is one of the most popular drinks in South Africa. In addition to tasting delicious and being an excellent source of antioxidants (it contains higher concentrations than other teas), it can also be used as a toner on your skin to reduce puffiness and redness, especially around your eyes.

I'm going to try this. I normally drink it in the morning with a squeeze of lemon to settle my stomache.

Sorry, rooibos is too good to waste on my face. I love any tea that is rooibos, and green rooibos is awesome, too.

I use this awesome moisturizer, you can get it from Whole Foods for sure, but it's Rooibos & Shea Butter. It's by a brand called Alaffia. It makes my skin SO nice. I love it! I know I've tagged it before, but here is the link in case anyone is interested!
