    How about the fact that it's an extract of a legume? It contains a lot of nice antioxidants but what about antinutrients?

    I like Rooibos. It's got a nice spicy flavor that tastes great without any sweeteners.

    I had no idea it wasn't caffeinated! I mix african red rooibos like a chocolate mate thing I have some mornings since I don't do much coffee.

    I like milder tasting caffeine free tea at night like chamomile or a white tea (or a combination thereof) but it's good to know I could do some rooibos at night too.
    I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

    The tea is made from the leaves of the plant, I believe, so there should be no issue with the tea that might possibly be associated with products from legume fruits.

    FW is right. The tea is made from the leaves. Yes, the bush happens to be of the legume family. So what?

    Yep. Just like if you eat the leaves of the turnip or radish plants. Completely different tastes and nutritional properties than the tubes. I'd imagine the same is true of the leaves vs. legume of the rooibos bush.

    I luv Rooibos - something we grew up with ... other than the plain rooibos my favourite is Earl Grey a Carmien brand. In addition to being full of antioxidents and caffeine free, its excellent for your skin and immune system and very popular with south african mom's who feed it to their babies to help them eat and sleep better.
