English tea drinkers tell us that Green Rooibos tastes the most like traditional green tea. Tests have shown Green Rooibos Tea is up to two times richer in flavonoids and antioxidants than Red Rooibos and is made by stopping the natural fermentation and oxidation process. This is accomplished by immediately steaming or heating the leaves and stems shortly after they are cut, this stop oxidation process. The rooibos steams and leave are then rolled and dried. The resulting tea is a delicate, aromatic tea with a heartier herbal taste. It is lighter in color than traditional red bush tea.
