Some may find the taste too unusual

Redbush tea, or rooibos as it is more commonly known, is an age old drink from South Africa, which is revered for its unique flavour and plethora of health benefits. It is an ideal beverage for the modern health conscious world. Although it is just beginning to catch on here, in its native South...

Good for you and caffeine free

Possibly an acquired taste

FIRST SIGHT I said in a previous review that I didn't know much about coffee, but I like to flatter myself that I know one or two things about tea. I was first introduced to Redbush tea a couple of years ago while spending some time working in Boston. A cousin owns a coffee shop there, and during...

“Redbush is my tea of choice”

published 20/04/2003

Tastes great and might just be good for you

Not everyone likes the taste

I grew up in South Africa drinking Rooibos Tea and was delighted to find it is now available in the UK. The name has been anglicised here as Rooibos literally means Red Bush. The tea actually comes from South Africa and grows in the Cape where I come from. It is made from the leaves of a herb...

“Health in a Red bush”

published 18/10/2003

Healthy

an aquired taste for sure

The highlight of my pre-school days was the aroma coming from the kitchen every day at 11 o’clock where my grandmother brewed a pot of Rooibosh tea. I grew up on it and to me it was like mother’s milk but my older siblings disliked the taste and smell. Gran made a strong brew, using the loose...

“Red Alert”

published 15/02/2003

Obvious benefits to health

Its an acquired taste

I’m a Yorkshire lass and proud of it. Hence the fact, that my brew of choice is Yorkshire Tea, every time. However since I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis last year I’ve been on the lookout for products that can help with my condition without tasting absolutely vile, which is how I came to...

a bit pricey compared to black tea

The first and most obvious thing to say about Redbush Tea is that it tastes good. Otherwise, it would take a real masochist to continue to drink it for its health properties alone. No, it doesn’t taste exactly like normal tea, but it’s the nearest in taste I’ve ever found – slightly sweeter, with...

There have been boxes of Redbush Tea Bags lying around our kitchen for around a year now as my dad was advised to cut out caffeine by his doctor as he has problems sleeping. He was initially given a box as a present, but liked the flavour and its lack of caffeine was just what the doctor ordered...

“ A Drink with a Difference”

published 14/07/2004

Naturally caffiene free

Much more expensive than ordinary tea.

I discovered that I was allergic to caffiene 8 years ago, and although my first concern was that I couldn't eat chocolate anymore, I quickly found that I missed tea and coffee much more. I drank fruit teas instead for several years, but although they tasted great, they never quite hit the spot...

Satisfactory

Apparently very healthy

Tastes like something I'd wash my dustbin out with

Straight to the hub/nub/point. Do you think I can get these people under trade description legislation? It says on the packet “Redbush Tea”. Tea is the biggest word on the packet. Underneath the big “tea”, it says “finest tea”. That word again: tea. This ISN’T tea. If this wasn’t a free sample...

many health benefits

a little bit pricey

Rooibos (redbush, there are a few different ways to spell the name) tea is a refreshing drink, the source of it is grown in South Africa. Apparently the plant is very fussy where it grows, and attempts to cultivate it elsewhere around the globe have failed! The demand for this good alternative to...

“Worth a go”

published 07/11/2006

Surprisingly similar to normal tea

Not exactly like normal tea!

I must say I'm surprised that so many have said this is an aquired taste - it's really pretty similar to the tea we all know and love! On making my first cup I was a little worried by the smell, which reminds me of woodsmoke, rather like matte tea. I don't like matte tea at all! I stared...

non

I like drinking tea but I don't like the caffeine in it. I wouldn't go for decaffeinated tea as I feel that it is not natural. Hence I was pleasantly surprised to read about rooibos or redbush tea, a South African Red Tea. Redbush tea is gaining popularity for its high level of antioxidants as...

naturally sweet, low in tanning, low in cafeine

sells out fast in shops

Red bush tea is red tea that is grown in Africa. It is naturally caffeine free which is good if your trying to cut down or if you are pregnant. It is also low in tanning and contains lots of antioxidants which can help fight against life threatening diseases such as cancer. Other benefits of Red...

Not for me

published 12/12/2007

I ordered some of this on a friends recommendation. Unfortunately after a month the company had still not shipped my order. They did not respond to my attempts to contact them so I cancelled the order and asked the credit card company to remove the charge, which they did (the company charged my card within a day of placing the order). So it may be great tea, but if there is nowhere else to buy it I am not going to be able to try it.

none i can think of!

i was looking for a tea that didn't have caffeine, contained potentially beneficial herbs and that didn't taste like twigs! i'm happy to say that with redbush tea, i've found it. because it has a visual- and taste-resemblance to normal tea, i'm very happy to drink it. drinking some herb teas can...
