African Red Tea Imports, Organic Rooibos, Green Unfermented, Caffeine Free, 20 Tea Bags, 1.6 oz (50 g)1 Review
Expiration Date: Oct 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Scientific studies show that Red Tea is naturally high in Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD), an outstanding antioxidant. Red Tea contains very little tannin, a substance that is known to affect the metabolism by decreasing absorption of certain nutrients like iron and protein.
Since 1900, Red Tea has been treasured as an elixir for the mind, body and spirit. The local "mountain people" were drinking a particular beverage that they called "Red Bush" in English. This rich, Red Tea comes from a wild plant of the legume family called "Aspalathus Linearis" which grows on the slopes of the Cederberg Mountains in Cape Town. They believed this tea to have tremendous healing powers, and it is often called "The Miracle Tea" in South Africa. We are proud to bring you our Red Tea farmed in the same area whence it was first discovered. Strict quality control enables us to provide you with the finest and best tasting Red Tea available.
Keeping You Healthy
For a great taste try it with milk, or cold mixed with your favorite fruit juice. Red Tea can be used in baking and cooking. Substitute the liquid content in any recipe with an equal amount of ready made tea.
Fact: The antioxidant activity increases when the tea is boiled for longer than 10 minutes.
Pour 1 cup of boiling water over tea bag, steep for 5 minutes. For increased strength and flavor - steep longer or boil tea bag in a pot of water for longer than 5 minutes.
