Also known by its English translation, Redbush, this “red tea” is grown only in South Africa. Rooibos is caffeine-free, low in tannins, and high in antioxidants, making it a favorite health drink purported to fight cancer, tension, and digestive issues. No. 6 Depot's version is lightly oxidized to produce its distinctive reddish-brown color and smooth flavor and then infused with mandarin orange to give it a warm, citrus flavor.
