Rooibos Vanilla Tea
Rooibos tea is popularly known as red tea not just because of its color, but also because that "rooibos" in Afrikaans means "red bush" when translated to English. The tea plant it is derived from is a short shrub with leaves so thin that they could just be needles. While initially green, the leaves turn red after picking and fermentation during the process of making tea. The plant grows only in South West Africa. It was at the beginning of the twentieth century that the rooibos tea gained popularity all over the world.
The tea is a gorgeous red color. It tastes sweet, with a slight nuttiness to its flavor. One of the biggest reasons that it has become so popular is that it can be used as a substitute for black tea. It can be drunk with milk or lemon, and it has a rich, refreshing taste. Since it is an herbal brew, it has very low caffeine content, making it much healthier than regular tea. The most popular flavor of rooibos tea is vanilla.
