Rooibos or red tea is a herbal drink with medicinal properties from South Africa. It is obtained from the fermentation of the leaves of the Aspalathus linearis shrub.
It is an ideal relaxing drink to treat headaches, hypertension, insomnia or stomach pains.
Unlike teas, Rooibos does not contain caffeine and therefore it can be taken by children, pregnant women or people with hypertension problems.
Taking rooibos in moderation does not have any health risks.
Preparing a rooibos is simple and fast. It can be taken hot or cold and mixed with water, milk or a vegetable drink such as oat milk, soy milk, or almond milk.
Heat 60 ml of water to 80 ºC and pour between 0.5 g and 1 g of rooibos powder. Mix with an electric or bamboo whisk until dissolved and foamy. Add 190 ml of water, milk or your favorite vegetable drink and… ready to drink!
