Iced Rooibos Organic Tea & Health Benefits

The health benefits of red rooibos tea are abundant. This form of tea has traditionally been popular due to its great taste and unique color, while also boosting the health of the body. Rooibos tea or red tea is a medicinal, herbal beverage that is acquired from the Aspalathus linearis bush plant that is found in South Africa. According to the South African Rooibos Council, rooibos is not a true tea, but an herb. The fermented tea is red in color.

The amazing health benefits of Red Rooibos Tea include a cure for nagging headaches, insomnia, asthma, eczema, bone weakness, hypertension, allergies, and premature aging.

The tea is absolutely free from caffeine content and is also low in tannins. You can enjoy the refreshing beverage all day long with no possible side effects. Drinking rooibos tea can further ease severe stomach cramps, as well as bring relief to asthma and other related conditions. It also boosts the immune system of the human body.

I prepare a pitcher of Iced Rooibos Tea and drink it every day
because it's become one of my favorite iced teas. The recipe is easy to make and tastes fruity and sweet which is why you don't need to add much sweetener. I make it the easy way in my coffee maker but you can also boil it on the stove if you desire.

This is my easy recipe:


4 organic rooibos tea bags
10 cups spring water
2 teaspoons raw honey
1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed organic lemon
Ice Cubes


Pour the water into your coffee maker and put the tea bags in the basket to brew your tea.

Add the honey and lemon into your pitcher. When the tea is finished brewing, pour into the pitcher and stir.  Add the ice cubes and refrigerate.
