Superior rooibos refers to a high-quality grade of rooibos tea that is made from the finest, hand-picked rooibos leaves. It is known for its smooth and sweet flavor, with a distinct natural sweetness that does not require additional sweeteners. Superior rooibos is typically grown and harvested in the Cederberg Mountains of South Africa, where the unique climate and soil conditions give the tea its distinct flavor and aroma.

Superior rooibos is naturally caffeine-free, making it a great alternative to traditional tea or coffee. It is also rich in antioxidants, including aspalathin and quercetin, which can help to protect the body against free radicals and promote overall health and wellness. Superior rooibos has been used for centuries by indigenous South African tribes for its medicinal properties, and is believed to have a range of health benefits, including improving digestion, promoting relaxation, and supporting the immune system.

MORE INFO

Rooibos studies from South Africa showed that people can get the optimum health benefit from drinking six cups of Rooibos spread throughout the day.

Key facts about the composition of Rooibos, and the importance of its compounds, can be summarized as follows:

Rooibos contains a complex mix of many flavonoids (compounds widely found in plants that are known to have health benefits). Its composition is unique, because it contains aspalathin – to date only isolated from Aspalathus linearis (the botanical name for Rooibos).

Aspalathin is the major flavonoid of unfermented Rooibos. It decreases during fermentation, but is still a major flavonoid constituent of fermented Rooibos (the tea with the characteristic red-brown color and flavor). Aspalathin is important, not only because it is a novel compound, but also because it is the most active antioxidant in Rooibos in many cases. Rooibos also contains the rare flavonoid glucoside nothofagin.

Other major phenolic compounds are orientin and iso-orientin, with smaller amounts of vitexin and isovitexin and many more compounds. The flavonoid composition of Rooibos varies between different regions and seasons, probably due to different soil and climate conditions, as well as genetic variations in the seeds used to propagate the plant.

Rooibos is naturally caffeine free. It is considered a low tannin beverage, especially when compared to Camellia sinensis (black) tea. Rooibos has a soothing effect on babies suffering from colic, stomach cramps and restlessness. It also helps with nappy rash, relieving irritation when applied with every diaper change.

Rooibos supplements the daily intake of calcium, manganese and fluoride needed by growing children for strong teeth and bones.

The lack of caffeine means a pregnant woman can drink Rooibos throughout the day without worsening some of pregnancy’s biggest discomforts – nausea, heartburn and insomnia.
