Rooibos Tea Recipe

Rooibos tea is an extremely healthy herbal tea that has become increasingly popular over the past couple of years. The tea is derived from a South African shrub, Aspalathus linearis.  You can purchase most herbal teas in two forms, loose herbal tea or tea bags.  Rooibos tea also has two varieties, traditional (red) rooibos and green rooibos.  Green rooibos has become the trendier version because it contains a higher level of antioxidants.  I decided to include more than one free rooibos tea recipe.  This post contains 6 free rooibos tea recipes.  These recipes are for red or green rooibos tea, both are delicious!
