Tea is the most popular drink in the world. The Camellia Sinenis plant is the plant from which all true tea comes – White, Green, Herbal, and Black. My favorite tea is Rooibos which I consider the ‘Tea of the Future’. Rooibos tea is naturally sweet and decaffeinated and possesses high levels of antioxidants. When brewed, Rooibos has a reddish brown color which is why it’s referred to as “red tea”. Red tea contains less than half the tannin found in regular tea. The mild flavor of Rooibos has made it a popular component of herbal drinks. These drinks are often blended with chocolate, caramel, ginger, and dried fruits. The celebration of tea drinking brings people together around food, conversation, and hospitality.
