Rooibos red tea

Have you try Rooibos red tea. They are pretty good tea. I try with Rooibos tea with Vanilla bean flavor tea. I read about Rooibos teas, they are good for you. They help for mild depression and all kind stuff. Also they are anti-aging. I do drink green tea too. Anyone have tried Rooibos tea? Like to talk about it?

Is it from South Africa? I just quick googled it. I never heard of this tea. Which store did you buy it? (i.e. health food store or food market) I drink green tea once a while.

I never heard of it before.

I do like to drink tea but I'm a strong coffee drinker!

Sounds nice. I've tried literally every tea you can find in the supermarket and am looking to try other kinds so I've resorted to loose leaf imports. =d i wanna know where to get some!

rooibos isn't tea, it's a bark from a tree in south africa, it's very healthy for you, caffeine-free, and high in anti-oxidants. There are no tannins, and so infusions can last as long as 30 minutes (I've done even longer)... the longer you steep it the better it is for you, and it never seems to taste too strong. I've heard that rooibos has 50 times more anti-oxidants than green tea, but I'm not sure if that's true. It is supposed to have soothing effect on the nervous system and is recommended for people suffering from irritability, headaches, disturbed sleep patterns, insomnia, mild depression and hypertension, stomach and digestive problems like nausea, vomiting, heartburn, ulcers and constipation may also be relieved by drinking this tea.

"It is said to be beneficial for the management of allergies and asthma. When applied topically, it soothes skin irritations like eczema, diaper rash and acne. It is great for athletes, as it replenishes depleted minerals after strenuous exercise and is a great thirst quencher."

You can find Rooibos Tea from health store. I got it from Safeway the brand is
Celestial Seasons Rooibos tea with vanilla flavor. I like to try different kind of teas. I drink green teas alot . Now I like Rooibos. Also I like Licorice mint tea. They taste yummy, some people don't like it. Also you can get organic rooibos. Maybe the brand is called Yogi. I use Yogi teas. They are organic teas . I drink teas everyday. I do drink coffee just 1 cup a day. I feel great!

Anyway rabbit is right. They are from Africa. Maybe you try it. I did it. Not very strong taste, it is smooth taste. You can add honey or milk. But I perfer leave it like that. Hope you like it.

No rooibos is not tea, trust me I know about this subject.

The word "Tea" comes from the scientific name "Thea Sinensis" which is a drink derived from the steeping of "Camellia Sinensis" leaves, and ONLY from those leaves- Rooibos is made from a completely differant plant known as "Aspalathus linearis".

I like green rooibos better than red, it has a slightly lighter flavour and is MUCH better for you!

Nope, haven't tried that, but adagio.com has a tea called "foxtrot" (named after the dance) which is a mix of chamomile, mint, and rooibos, it's very relaxing!

Yes I've had them, many of their teas are indian style (i.e. masala chai) teas and are a bit too "harsh" or spicy for me though.

Since we're on the subject of teas- does anyone know if it's possible to burn tea or alter a tea's flavor by using a different tempature of water or tap vs. bottled? Cause sometimes I swear I make a bad cup every now and then, other times it tastes more full. I think there's a hidden art within it how to make the perfect cup just like how there's an art to making the perfect ramen (which I have mastered! HAHAHA...ahem. yeah.)

It IS possible to burn (or cook) the tea leaves, especialy with green tea, usualy for green tea I use water that is about 150 to 170 (just about when it starts steaming) so as not to cook the leaves. with black tea you can wait until the water comes to a rolling boil... it would be very hard to cook black tea leaves, and I've never heard of anyone doing this either.

Well lately I was drinking gunpowder tea. Decided to switch around. Just tried rooibos. Smells terrible, like swamp water/rotting leaves but tastes nice. Thanks for the info. I once was contemplating on buying an espresso machine to brew my tea -sheepish chuckle-

If any of you have ever chopped wood, and you've peeled off the bark of a piece you'll probably notice rooibos has a very similar smell!

As to the espresso machine... those are WAY too expensive and wont steep your tea right, you can't choose how hot the water is or how long the leaves sit in it with that.

Try the IngenuiTEA by Adagio teas... it works better and is MUCH cheeper!

Actually espresso machines DO keep a tempature constant and let you choose it. The seep part might be correct though, seeing tea is supposed to stew while for coffee you bleed warm water through the grounds. Expensive, yeah but if you're clever you can convince store clerks to sell you shelf display models when they decide to take it down for a HUGE discount. I was going to get a 300 buck delonghi espresso machine for about 60 bucks but no warranty and all so I decided it probably wasn't worth the hassle.

I've cut firewood before. It just smells more like rotting leaves to me the sort of fall smell around dying plants with fallen leaves. There's more of an acidic harshness, but indeed there is a bark smell. Maybe I brought a bad batch haha!
