With the help of these easy Rooibos tea recipes, make your own hot or iced Rooibos tea - or even create a soothing, healing spa bath with Rooibos herbal tea! And why not treat your complexion to a calming, fragrant Rooibos tea steam?
So, you've been hearing about the many health benefits of South African Rooibos herbal tea and would like to brew a cup and try it for yourself...
Making a cup of this tea is simple and very much like brewing any other herbal tea - just follow one of these simple Rooibos tea recipes.
Rooibos tea is also wonderful iced - a healthy, nutritious, refreshing substitute for cold fruit juices or soft drinks for you (and your children) on hot summer days!
This recipe multiples well - just remember to use about twice as many teabags (or twice as much Rooibos loose leaf tea) when you're making the iced version.
Mix a pitcher of iced Rooibos to enjoy with your family on a hot summer's afternoon or on your own as you relax in the hammock with your favorite summertime read!
Rooibos tea isn't only for enjoying as a calming, refreshing beverage - believe it or not, it's well known for its topical benefits, too!
With its anti-inflammatory qualities, Rooibos can soothe and relieve inflammatory skin conditions, such as acne, baby's diaper rash, sunburn, itchiness, or eczema. Rooibos is even valued for reducing the surface signs of aging (like wrinkles!) and can be found as an ingredient in a variety of skincare and cosmetic products. And, researchers are studying the effectiveness of Rooibos in protecting against and as a treatment for skin cancer.
To make Rooibos tea for topical use, simply brew regular strength pure Rooibos tea, as in the recipe for Hot Rooibos Tea above. (Be sure to use pure Rooibos tea - no blends!) Add 2 or 3 cups of brewed Rooibos tea to bath water for a calming, sweetly scented bath. Or, when cooled, Rooibos tea can be applied gently to an inflamed area of skin for soothing relief.
A therapeutic Rooibos Tea Steam is another way to thoroughly enjoy the topical benefits of this amazingly healthful herbal tea! Learn more about Rooibos Tea Steams here.
These Rooibos tea recipes are simple ways to enjoy the appealing taste and health benefits of Rooibos. When you buy Rooibos tea, you'll often find it offered in delicious blends, many of which will be just as enjoyable iced as hot.
Rooibos is a versatile tea that is wonderful combined with other flavors, so don't be afraid to experiment with new tastes!
