Rooibos Tea Latte

Rooibos Tea Latte

by Theresa Krier

This caffeine-free Rooibos Tea Latte is a cozy warm drink perfect for evenings. It's a simple, healthy recipe that begs to be made regularly. Why we love it: Rooibos is perhaps the most perfect tea to use for a latte. Rooibos is unique because the longer it brews, the bolder the flavor without any astringent bitter aftertaste. Rooibos also has a myriad of health benefits, especially around beauty and anti-aging (yes please).
