Rooibos & Spring Break Sun

Spring Break has arrived and warmer temps should be following so this is this is the time when tea drinking habits change from just hot to tea to mostly iced tea. In the united states 80% of all the tea we drink is drank as iced tea. Some teas are more than just good to drink they are also useful. So many of you returning from Florida will have painful sunburns to deal with and in your tea cupboard is one of the best things to take the sting out. The first thing to use if you have it is aloe vera and Jewelweed but if you don’t have it brew up a batch of iced rooibos and wet a towel with it and lay it across the affected area. Rooibos works to reduce the swelling with reduces the pain. I have heard the tannins in black tea can also help but I have never seen the same results I get from Rooibos. Rooibos also works well for migraines, sore throat and acid reflux. I personally enjoy it most just as a beverage but it is good to know that I am also doing something good for myself.
