Grown in South Africa, the little Rooibos shrub is not a tea plant. The drink produced from its leaves, is however, often called "red tea." The infusion is, indeed, a coppery red. Its popularity is growing outside its native South Africa, thanks to its health benefits. It contains no theine and can thus be consumed throughout the day, even in the evening. The taste is "warm," rounded, and light; very pleasant. Rooibos Tea is becoming more popular in Western countries, particularly among health-conscious consumers, due to its high level of antioxidants such as aspalathin and nothofagin, its lack of caffeine, and its low tannin levels compared to fully oxidized black tea or unoxidized green tea leaves. Water: 185°F (85°C) Steeping time: three to four minutes
