According to its Wiki page, the rooibos bush looks like a broom. The plant is used to make herbal tea. It has high levels of antioxidants.
Rooibos is pronounced ROY-boss. Rooibos is naturally caffeine free.
This week I discovered the Vanilla Rooibos Tea at Starbucks. A few of us were out to see movies (yes, plural) and someone wanted a decaffeinated drink, so we went to Starbucks and the barista suggested the Vanilla Rooibos Tea. Apparently it was good, so I decided to give it a try.
Starbucks describes it as, “an herbal blend of botanicals including rooibos, vanilla, sweet blackberry leaves, apples and peaches.” I think it’s heavenly.
Even the tea bag is pretty … I’m usually a fan of the Refresh Tea, but, if you want to change things up a bit, a little less minty, a little smooth, then the Vanilla Rooibos is the tea to drink. What’s a smooth drink you ask? Well, give it a try and you’ll see.
