“Rooibos tea (known in Britain as Redbush), grown in South Africa is naturally caffiene free and low in tannins so it's healthier and doesn't have the heavy tannin taste that puts me off most regular teas. You can also buy Organic Rooibos which is even better. This iced tea lasts for ages in the fridge and it's really light and refreshing!”
