Green matcha tea has the reputation of providing the same stimulating effect as coffee but without any of the side effects. This means that matcha is a great way to start your day with a kick! In contrast, the relaxing effect of rooibos makes it an equally great way to end your day!
Biotona Rooibos Tea Powder is made from the leaves of the Aspalathus linearis plant, more commonly known as rooibos (meaning ‘red bush’), which originated in South Africa. The name refers to the red-brown colour resulting from the oxidation of the leaves during their processing. For Rooibos Tea Powder, Biotona uses only the very best organically grown leaves, which are dried in the sun after harvesting, before being ground into a fine powder. This results in a tea with a delicate and mildly sweet flavour.
A tea powder is made from the full leaf. This produces a powder of the very highest quality. The powder is then mixed with a liquid, which is usually hot water, although it is also delicious with (vegetable) milk. The difference with ordinary loose tea is that the powder dies not need to be brewed. The resulting infusion of ordinary tea only contains a fraction of the goodness trapped in the leaves. With our powder you get the full benefit of all this goodness!
Rooibos offers many benefits for your health. For example, it contains chrysoeriol, which combats inflammation. This flavone has a bronchodilatory working, so that a warming cup of rooibos tea can help to relieve coughing and wheezing, allowing you to breathe again more freely. Rooibos also contains quercetin, a substance that works as a mild anti-histamine to prevent allergic reactions. But it doesn’t stop there! Rooibos protects against free radicals, is good for your heart and blood vessels, and can even help to soothe stomach pain and cramps!
Rooibos does not contain theine, so that you can drink it late at night without it keeping you awake. In fact, it has a pleasing anti-stress and relaxing effect, which is just what you need after a busy day. Use the powder, for example, in a delicious Rooibos Latte, before settling down for a pleasant evening and a good night’s sleep!
