We all know the power of green tea but at the other end of the colour chart is a lesser revered super antioxidant tea, Rooibos or Red Tea. This nutrient is a rare anti-oxidant rich tea that only grows in the Western Cape region of South Africa. It gives you 50% more anti-oxidant power than green tea. And it shields your skin from oxidative damage – a primary reason why your skin ages.

Rooibos is becoming more popular in Western countries, particularly among health-conscious consumers, due to its high level of antioxidants such, its lack of caffeine, and its low tannin levels compared to fully oxidized black tea or unoxidized green tea leaves.Rooibos also contains a number of health benefits, including flavanols, flavones, flavanones, and dihydrochalcones.

Rooibos is said to help with nervous tension, allergies and digestive problems. Rooibos tea has been shown to inhibit in vitro activity of xanthine oxidase, yet an in vivo study has not been conducted.

Topically it has been used to calm redness and inflammation in the skin, check out Diva Deva for one of the best Red Tea serums on the market
