Organic Green Rooibos
Rooibos contains many minerals such as iron, magnesium, calcium, zinc, potassium and copper, making it very beneficial for healthy bones and teeth. It has fair amounts of alpha-hydroxy acid, which is known to promote healthy skin. It is naturally caffeine free and has high level of antioxidants, such as aspalathin and nothofagin, and is low in tannins.
Green rooibos is processed differently than more known red rooibos. The red rooibos leaves are bruised and oxidized, the green rooibos leaves are lightly steamed to halt the oxidation process, leaving them closer to their natural state. They make lighter bodied, woody-grassy brew with natural sweetness.
