What Our Customers Say:

Three years ago I was pregnant with my second child. I had horrible Braxton Hicks contractions. Sometimes so bad that I would fall to the floor or couldn't walk. I tried everything (laying on my side, drinking lots of cold water etc, etc) then someone I worked with gave me some Rooibos tea. It helped the BH contractions almost right away. I still had them, but they were not painful or uncomfortable.

If you are on this site then "congratulations" because you have found in Lifespan a top of the line company with top grade teas. In January '09, I was diagnosed with diabetes. My AC1 test was 11.6 and I was just lucky not to have incurred any organ damage as of yet. I was prescribed 500MG met for min twice daily and glyburide 5 mg twice daily. I also wanted to find something that would assist in lowering blood sugar naturally. That is when I discovered Lifespan and read the testimonials and research on honeybush tea. I had the pleasure of speaking to Sandy, the owner, personally. She has a wealth of knowledge and is so concerned about her consumers and eager to assist. She recommended honeybush and the red Rooibos to work with blood sugar and build immunity. I started drinking those teas every day by the pot full. In Feb. I was able to drop one dose of met for min and on March 25th my AC1 had dropped to 6.3. Needless to say I was delighted with my progress. I really attribute a good bit of this success to drinking the Rooibos teas.

What was truly wonderful with daily tea drinking was that along the way I was noticing a big difference in my arthritis symptoms and my allergy problems were diminishing as well. When I last spoke to Sandy, I told her how reassuring it was for me to find a site with testimonials and have a person to speak with directly who had so much knowledge and was so caring. I highly recommend drinking these tasty teas and knowing that you are in good hands with Lifespan. Individuals can have real "hope" in knowing that health issues can be alleviated and controlled with rooibos teas. All one needs to do is just give it a try and let the tea do the rest!

Dear Sandy,

This note is to let you know that since I have been drinking the Rooibos Teas I find myself much calmer than I have been in a long time.

I have only 35% kidney function from taking a medication for bipolar disorder for 40 years. Thanks to the calming effect of the hot tea in the morning coupled with the delicious peach or mango iced tea with lunch, I am much more relaxed all day. My moods are more stable and I am much more relaxed and at peace with myself: I no longer take any medication for the bipolar disorder. My kidneys are now stable and not getting any worse.

Thanks to the Rooibos Tea, God, exercise and a healthy diet I feel like I am 25 years old again. by the way I am 54 years old. I sincerely hope that more people can and will benefit from this wonderful tea.

                                                                                                                 Thanks again

                                                                                                                                              Florida Customer - Name withheld by request


I am not a person given to flights of fancy when it come to things like tea, but rooibos has really changed my life in a great way. I started drinking it when someone had some at work. Prior to that my energy was really low all the time. I could hardly get out of bed. I felt sick and run down and depressed constantly. Within a few days drinking about 3 cups a day my energy started picking up more and more till now I feel great (Its been about 6 months). After always relying on the quick fix of coffee (and slump an hour later, churning stomach…) having something that each cup makes me feel better and better with no “come down” is so liberating. If you don’t drink it – start! Also a tip – it tastes amazing with a bag of blueberry tea in it as well.

I first heard about Rooibos in 2003 when I was 24. Lifespan was the first place I bought the red rooibos from. Since then, it has been almost magical. I will make a pitcher with about four tea bags and leave it in the refrigerator, filling up empty water bottles throughout the day. My skin is clear and soft, my hair is shiny, and my eyes are brighter. But it is the physical benefits that are most amazing. I have cerebral palsy and muscle spasms. as well as epilepsy, asthma, and sciatica. Rooibos tea has actually relaxed and soothed my muscle spasms, decreased inflammation, relieved pain, made it easier to breathe, and even helped my brain calm down enough to help control my seizures better! My stamina is better. I used to get very fatigued very easily because of my medical problems. But now I can easily walk a mile or two and feel great. I have so much energy. That is wonderful. I sleep better at night, wake up refreshed every morning, and I just feel so healthy overall. I can’t say enough about your rooibos tea, I could go on and on about how fantastic it is. I even found and bought some skin care products with red rooibos to keep my face looking youthful, and it’s done wonders. I look young for my age already, but now my skin looks like a teenager’s.

I am a Lifespan rooibos tea drinker for life.

I have been drinking Red Rooibos tea for over a year ago. I didn’t get a cold, sore throat, flu since I have been drinking it. I’m playing baseball again I haven’t played in 7 years, the amount of energy I have is unbelievable. I drink 2 cups a day and will be drinking it from now on.

                                                                                                                             Stan D.


I am a very pleased customer. I just returned from vacation with lip blisters from the sun. I have been drinking your teas for the past year or so, and last night I decided to place a moistened Honeybush tea bag on my remaining lip blister. This morning the blister was healed. Another great use for your wonderful teas. Just thought I’d pass on this bit of good news.

A young gentleman that I work with has introduced me to the rooibos tea, and I absolutely love it, and I have several medical issues that the tea has helped with almost instantaneously. I have severe headaches, and the young gentleman had asked me to try the tea, and I was reluctant at first, however with in 2 minutes., and I mean 2 minutes., my headache was completely gone, and only after 2 or 3 sips of the tea. It also has helped my anxiety and depression. Thank you many times over.

                                                                                                                                                            Trace, Boise, Idaho


I started drinking Rooibos tea about 18 months ago, I drank from 2-4 cups a day and I started this because I had a lot of aching in my fingers. I am thrilled to say that I have had very little “knuckle” discomfort since starting on the tea. Four weeks ago I had a minor heart attack which totally shocked not only me but the medical staff helping me. I’m only 50 yrs. old and in excellent health. An angiogram revealed that I have a very small artery that is blocked and that’s what caused the attack. The cool thing is that my heart had already begun to repair this problem by building a lengthy collateral to the trouble area. This indicated that I’ve had the blockage for awhile because it takes time to build that length of new artery. I guess I won’t know till I get to heaven, but I’d have to wonder what part the Rooibos Tea played in building the repair! In any case, I’m now drinking more tea because I intend to live many more years in good health.

I just had to let you know how your Red Lemon Rooibos Tea has helped me in sooo many ways and I have only been drinking it for about three months.

My blood pressure has gone down from about 130/90 with medication to about 110/68 and my doctor is considering taking me off my medication. My leg cramps have disappeared. I used to get something I can only describe as growing pains down my entire right leg - also "no more"! My stomach problems, which I used to have each morning - also gone. People have noticed that my skin is looking younger and my "chicken neck" seems to be gone as well. Before I started drinking this tea my arthritis was pretty close to crippling me to the point where I could hardly do my work. Now I only get a little flare up once in while when the weather conditions are really humid because I live across the street from Lake Erie in Canada. My allergies are now non-existent. The list goes on and on. My boss was telling another customer who also has similar problems where I work that I am a different person - I have com back to life!! She says it is a miracle. Now she is trying a bag of twenty for her arthritis and blood pressure. Another one of my co-workers is pregnant and I gave her a bag of twenty for her morning sickness and she says it helps her tremendously and she will be getting more for herself and the baby because of its properties for taking care of colic and diaper rash.

I always have a pitcher of iced lemon rooibos in the fridge and drink it constantly. It tastes so refreshing especially without sugar and I used to put sugar in everything! I have energy to burn now and am always looking for things to do. I can't tell you how much better I feel and it is all because of Lifespan Tea. I even wash my face with the old tea bags.

Once again, thanks Lifespan and you - Sandy - you have changed my life

I fell work in 2001---17-20 feet shattering my left ankle joint and chipping my left elbow and have had 11 surgeries, the last being 2004 on ankle and I was sent rooibos by the power hours Joyce and Dave. I also have RSD Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy along with a damaged nerve, I have pain with sharp stabbing followed by burning or numbing and sometimes very sensitive skin. I started drinking the tea and after about fours days the problems with sleeping due to pain and meds had begun to stop and I could now sleep 5-7 hours which increased my energy and made me feel more relaxed after consuming the wonderful red miracle. This Tea also helps rid my body of the toxins that might be trying to build up from the deadly pain meds...Thank God for rooibos and for all other herbs that were put here for us.

Rooibos tea is an absolute miracle!

A few months ago, I read an article outlining the Green Tea Diet. Since I was more than 150 pounds overweight and my metabolism was at an obvious standstill, I jumped at the promise of increased metabolism. The article included a sidebar describing the additional attributes of Rooibos tea. I added red Rooibos to my daily diet 2 months ago and lost 30 pounds. The tea stopped my carb cravings, lessened actual hunger and the pounds are continuing to drop.

What really amazed me is this: I’ve suffered with rheumatoid arthritis for over 14 years with very little relief. I’ve been on 500 mg. of Lodine twice daily for the last few years and it no longer seems to be effective. The pain and swelling recently got so intense, that even the simplest of movements was horribly painful and treacherous. I’ve had to use a walker on 3 occasions just since the first of this year. I thought my next doctor’s visit would be to schedule double knee replacement surgery. Imagine my surprise when my pain significantly lessened within 24 hours of drinking my first cup of this tea and I was able to take 2 full flights of steps without difficulty. Thanks to Rooibos’s potent anti-inflammatory properties, within 2 weeks (drinking 6 cups daily) the relief continued to increase to the point I felt as if I’d never had arthritis!

I now sleep soundly, not having to toss and turn to find a comfortable position. I have more than enough energy to keep up with my grandchildren and I can actually play with them , which had previously been out of the question. It will be interesting to see what my blood pressure and cholesterol levels are at my next doctor’s visit.

I drink Lifespan Rooibos Tea nearly every day. I drink it because of the antioxidants and it tastes good. Since drinking the tea, my eye floaters have disappeared. My eye doctor had said I would have them the rest of my life - but they're gone now! Also, I haven't been sick in the last two years even though I have been exposed to flu and colds by both family members as well as co-workers.

My mother has had macular degeneration. She has been drinking the tea and thought it was getting better. She asked her eye doctor to check it and he told her that her condition doesn't get better, it can only be slowed in its progress sometimes. She asked him to check it anyway and he was surprised that it indeed had gotten better, it was not gone however. When she went in for her next eye exam, she could no longer see a black dot on the eye grid that is used to test for macular degeneration meaning that her eyes had improved again. He has never seen this happen in anyone.

I have been drinking Lifespan Rooibos Tea for the past four years. My doctor wanted to put me on high blood pressure medication. After drinking this tea my blood pressure is lower than when I was in college. I drink an average of three to four cups every day. I swim every day and have noticed a huge improvement in my energy level and wind. Men half my age can't keep up with me in the lane!

                                                                                                                                          Lt. Col. K.C. von Tagen


Before drinking Lifespan Rooibos Tea, I suffered monthly from painful ovarian cysts. Since drinking the tea on a regular basis, I am pain free. What a relief! My daughter, who is almost two, used to suffer from ear infections on a regular basis. She hasn't had one ear infection since drinking this tea. I combine Rooibos with milk or juice. She loves it!

                                                                                                                                                                            G. Arriaga, Boise Idaho


I drank Lifespan Rooibos Tea all during my first pregnancy. It was delicious and refreshing, not dehydrating, and I felt it bolstered my immune system. I delivered a beautiful, healthy baby girl two years ago and am pregnant again, still drinking the tea! I highly recommend this tea to all pregnant and nursing mothers

                                                                                                                                           L. Grooms


I began regularly drinking Lifespan Rooibos Tea 4 years ago. Up until that time I had been drinking green tea, but had to limit the amount because it contained caffeine and would bother my sleep. After drinking Lifespan Rooibos Tea, I noticed an immediate change in how well I slept. Also, for years I had been troubled with occasional bladder infections. Since drinking the tea, I have not had another bladder infection! Wow!

                                                                                                                                          S. Smith, Boise, Idaho



I have been losing weight by eating right and exercise over the last year. Unfortunately as I get closer to my goal it is more difficult to lose weight. I realized to continue to lose I had to cut out something or add more exercise. Since I did not have the extra time to add exercise I decided to cut out a morning snack that I ate at my desk to keep hunger away until I had a low fat yogurt at break. Now I make a cup of Honeybush Tea in the morning and it takes care of my hunger until break with no calories! I also drink a cup in the evening at home if I feel hungry after dinner. I really like Honeybush Tea and it really does help with weight loss. Thank You
