I'm not a huge tea drinker but I've been sick a lot lately and so haven't been able to indulge my coffee addiction as much as usual. I was looking for a good hot drink I could have in the evenings without then being up all night.
Enter red tea.
Red tea, also called rooibus or bush tea (which any fan of the Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency would know is Precious Ramotswe's beverage of choice), comes from the Cedarburg region of South Africa. It's delicious, almost a bit sweet, not at all bitter, and it's naturally 100% caffeine-free. It's even chock full of healthy anti-oxidants. I haven't tried it iced yet, but I'm thinking that will be pretty darn tasty too.
Red tea - it works for me.
