The South-African Tea of a Thousand Virtues

Rooibos, reddish “miracle” tea, with its “slight taste of strawberries”, is gradually moving away from its ancestral origins. The thousand virtues of this tea and the industrialization it has undergone have brought it to the attention of the masses in more northern countries. The beverage has however been known for centuries among South African tribes and rooibos is especially appreciated for its cardioprotective, anti-inflammatory, anti-mutagenic, anti-aging, anti-carcinogenic, etc., properties.
