Rooibos yerba mate never tasted so amazing. Grown only in a super select region of South Africa, Rooibos can definitely hang in the ring with the reigning Champion, Yerba Mate. Boasting an impressive treasure chest of antioxidants, minerals, and nutrients, this rooibos blend is frutiliciously healthy treat.
Antioxidants such as aspalathin and nothofagin go toe-to-toe with green tea's impressive EGCG antioxidant. Helping protect the heart, decrease antioxidants, help regulate glucose levels, opens up the lungs to assist breathing, improve blood circulation, anticancer, and anti-mutagenic. Sharing antioxidants such as quercetin and luteolin with yerba mate, rooibos tea helps the body decrease inflammation and suppress viruses.
What's not to like about this blend. A bold and fruity blend that still has that yerba mate kick you'd expect. Enjoy hot or cold. Princely Peach Rooibos also contains about half the amount of caffeine as pure yerba mate. This light body blend is a must try.Sources:
