We serve nine different rooibos teas at Secret Garden, including as Creamy Caramel Rooibos, Raspberry Rooibos, and Chai Rooibos. But what is it exactly?
Rooibos (pronounced “roy-bos”) is actually an herb made from a South African shrub that only grows in the Cape Town region.
The resulting infusion is deep red, with a sweet and nutty flavour. We love rooibos because it has a strong, rich flavour, without caffeine. It can even take a bit of milk and sugar like a black tea! On top of that, rooibos is full of antioxidants and other nutrients.
