This unoxidized version of rooibos presents an earthy taste that's soothing to the stomach. Given to colicky infants in Africa, rooibos boasts many health benefits including aiding in digestion, reducing swelling in skin ailments and boosting the immune system.
Rooibos is usually grown in the Cederberg, a small mountainous area in the region of the Western Cape province of South Africa.
Generally, the leaves are oxidized (often termed 'fermentation' in common tea processing terminology). This process produces the distinctive reddish-brown color of rooibos and enhances the flavor. Unoxidized "green" rooibos is also produced, but the more demanding production process for green rooibos (similar to the method by which green tea is produced) makes it more expensive than traditional rooibos. It carries a malty and slightly grassy flavour somewhat different from its red counterpart
