Red bush tea also known as Rooibos ( Aspalathus linearis ) is made from the twigs and leaves of this shrub. I love this tea. It has a nutty, sweet flavor which requires no extra sweeteners nor even honey.  Rooibos does have a lower tannin level  than the well known Green or Black teas. 

The properties of this tea are in its content of flavonoids which have been shown to have antioxidant, and anti-mutagenic properties. Rooibos is rich in polyphenols.

The one drawback but not a deal breaker is its effect of iron absorption (  like the Green teas) It  did not effect iron absorption significantly. Rooibos does vary in its content of Vitamin C This tea protects you against free radical damage
