Rooibos comes from a bush grown in South Africa. It brews a dark reddish colour and has a strong sweet taste. Its strength and colour makes it comparable to black tea, it also gives it enough body to go really well with milk. It is healthy and caffeine free, perfect to drink in the evening before bed.
Chamomile tea is made from the flower heads of the chamomile plant. It has a subtle flowery flavour with a hint of apple.
