Is Rooibos Really A Tea?
There are many customers who come to our store to buy rooibos tea. Although tea is an infusion, it must be clarified that not all infusions are tea, since only infusions from the leaves of Camellia Sinensis should be called tea. It is more correct to say rooibos infusion than rooibos tea, since rooibos comes from an African bush, specifically from Aspalathus Linearis and not from Camellia Sinensis.
Leaving this small clarification aside, we will use this post to clarify what rooibos is, talk about its properties, its contraindications and the most demanded rooibos in our online tea and infusions store.
