Rooibos Teas from Nova Tea
Rooibos Tea flavored with real blueberries, cranberries, spices, or just natural, is always a delight
The Rooibos plant (Aspalathus Linearis), also known as red bush, grows naturally in a small area in the Western Cape region in South Africa at an altitude of about 2000 feet. Rooibos is endemic to this area and attempts to cultivate it in North America and other areas were unsuccessful. The infusion made from the leaves of this plant has been know in South Africa for many years and lately gained world-wide popularity. Rooibos tea is a rich source of antioxidants with a high level of flavonoids and contains no caffeine. The leaves are oxidized to produce the distinctive redish-brown color and to enhance the flavour. Rooibos tastes well with added flavors like spices and fruits, and Nova Tea offers these in its new assortment online and in select stores in Nova Scotia. Our Rooibos Nova Tea is available in 50 gram tins with locally grown blueberries or cranberries, as Rooibos Chai, or just natural.
