Ruby red Rooibos tea is famous all over South Africa. I've developed the most intense love affair with it in the form of a red latte since I've arrived. You can't really see it from this photo, but the bright, feel-good tea is whipped up with some frothy milk and after I sling about five packs of sugar in there, I've created a little hot tea cookie in a cup. Though rooibos has no caffeine, I still get all wired from it (well, that and a fistful of Red Bulls) every morning. It just makes me feel clean and happy and the health benefits abound: it's full of antidioxants that slow the aging process, it boosts immunity and it's been known to help aid with insomnia, irritability, headaches, nervous tension, and hypertension (all MST culprits). Rooibos is very expensive back home at Whole Foods, but here, it's practically a weed--you can buy bags of it at the market for right about nothing. I shall bring many bags home~~I'm pretty stunned that Starbucks hasn't marketed this mama.
