Drink Rooibos!

Rebecca Lowman

I drink a lot of water; seriously, there are very few times you will catch me without it. In fact, I probably spent more time than I should have researching new water bottles (don’t tell my husband). I got my new B.F.F. from Life Factory (https://www.lifefactory.com) and while it doesn’t keep my water cool I am confidant that my water or any other beverage isn’t compromised.

Anyway, on to the reason of my post, something that I enjoy filling my bottle with is rooibos tea (think “roy-boss”). For those of you that haven’t heard of rooibos tea, it is actually a bush that grows exclusively in South Africa. The leaves are harvested from the bush while green and then fermented which gives the tea a deep brick red color.

Not only does it taste super yummy but also is caffeine free and contains LOTS of antioxidants. I love it so much I made it a main ingredient in my Hippie Haven bar (https://barsbybecca.com/products/hippie-haven).

Here is a link to an article outlining the benefits of consuming rooibos tea:

I get my rooibos on Amazon from a company called “Positively Tea”. I drink loose leaf but you can also find it in bags if you aren’t into the whole loose leaf thing.

 

I hope that you guys will consider adding rooibos to your beverage menu, I promise that you won’t regret it!

 

XOXO,

Becca
