Rooibos tea grows exclusively in South Africa’s Western Cape, in the mountainous Cedarberg area. The unique micro-climate of this tiny geographical region allows for the best quality natural teas to be grown. The harsh climate and fertile volcanic soil combine to form this rare herbal treasure with legendary health benefits from alleviating the symptoms of allergies to supplying the body with vital antioxidants. Studies conducted at the Institute for Science of Aging at AICHI Medical University in Japan, showed Rooibos Tea to contain Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD) - an outstanding antioxidant and prime fighter of free radical damage. As a result of their studies, they termed Rooibos Tea "an anti-aging beverage," which can significantly help counter the aging process. It has been prescribed for mild depression, nervous tension, digestive problems, and insomnia. Minerals in Rooibos tea include iron, potassium, calcium, copper, zinc, magnesium, fluoride, manganese, and sodium. Rooibos is also rich in the flavonoid Quercetin, known to increase capillary strength. Nu Tea's organically grown Rooibos tea is caffeine-free and low in tannin.
