Export to the west with the discovery that rooibos has a high antioxidant polyphenol and flavonoid content which can help build the immune system and protect the body from free-radicals that weaken natural defenses.
Why choose loose leaf tea?
Loose leaf tea is precisely what it sounds like: tea that comes to the kitchen loose, without the confinement of a single-serving bag or infuser. Much like a bulk spice, grain, or salt you might bring home from your local market, loose leaf teas are meant to be measured by hand during the preparation process, which typically takes place with a pot and strainer, a metal or silicone infuser, or a tea press (i.e., a French press used for tea).
