Rooibos doesn’t come from a tea plant, but from the rooibos plant, a broom-like legume found in South Africa’s shrubland. Brewed with hot water this tisane has been consumed for thousands of years in South Africa and it’s neighboring countries, and was an important item of trade throughout the continent.
Considering the supremely indulgent flavor of vanilla we must insist on the following: brew this with milk and a bit of honey. Just really, seriously, do this. It’s sort of the most amazing thing ever. You’ll thank us.
