Herbal Teas - Teabags

Ancient physicians made full and effective use of the natural medicines around them. Most of todays herbal knowledge has its roots in the old time-tested healing systems. Today most mainstream medicines are made from chemical derivatives and even fossil fuels. They are, as a general rule, very new creations that often mimic or are derived from the active constituents of herbs. Herbal teas are usually taken for their flavor and/or ability to subtly alter the body's chemistry. Either way they are a strong tradition that continues today.

    Rooibos is renown for being caffeine-free and has a very high antioxidant level, even when compared to green tea. It has a refreshing flavour and can be steeped for long periods without becoming bitter due to its low tannin content. Drink it plain or add milk and sugar for a different flavour.
