In South Africa, there are apparently several different Genus used as Honeybush Tea.

Outside of that, I've seen Rooibos {Aspalathus linearis} sold as "Honeybush" {Cyclopia sp.} - though they are all Leguminous Shrubs {Fabaceae Family}.

Hi
I'm new to this site, so 'hi' to you all. I have a question about Redbush (Rooibos) tea. I'm a type A and it's recommended that I avoid tea. Do you know if that includes Rooibos tea, or does it just mean black/green tea? I'm not very clued-up on tea, so all the information I can find will be a great help. I've looked at a couple of Rooibos websites but I'm still not sure if I should avoid this particular tea, too. I'd be grateful for any advice.
Thanks
Beck

HI Beck welcome
- you can show us your blodtype by

Tea means just BLACK tea - green is fine for you

-I think Roobois is untested

Thanks so much. I'll have a cup now. I wish I'd found this site ages ago (but I guess I wasn't meant to, for whatever reason). I've been following the diet for about a year and a half now. My Dad died of stomach cancer almost twelve years ago, and I'm keen to eat the right things and do all I can to prevent the same thing happening to me. My children also have various food intolerances, so I will be a regular visitor from now on. Thanks, again.

Thanks ... I do drink Rooibos and really like it; I find it to be quite cleansing actually ...
I was wondering about Honeybush since it seems like a tea with lots of good properties; furthermore, I've read that both Honeybush and Rooibos tea have significant anti-viral properties and help to build up the body's auto-immune system

From what I've read: the real proper prepared should probably be avoided more, as it is essentially prepared like the Black Tea is from Green Tea.

Rooibos and 'Green' Honeybush would be OK - though untested Neutrals.

Then, there is Taheebo...

I drank a cup of Rooibos tea last night at about 9pm and by midnight I was still wide awake !!
Then in the middle of the night, I suddenly had a headache/pressure type pain that kept me from sleeping profoundly ... strange ... does this tea perhaps have hidden caffeine  

I would really appreciate to hear from people who drink Rooibos and if they ONLY drink it early in the day or at nightime, bedtime ...  etc ...
Thank-u very much

I would like to give this a try. I have just started seeing it out on shelves. I drink a lot of white tea by Honest. Then I pour a little bit of lemonade by Lakewood in the tea. Sometimes I heat it up and drink it warm and sometimes I drink in cold. Very nice tasting herb tea.

I will keep my eye out for the Red tea and give it a try.

I wouldn't say there is any Caffeine in Rooibos - However "Medicinal Herbs", especially Fabaceae Family herbs are chock full of exotic chemicals that could/would react differently in different people.

No wonder !!

chock full of exotic chemicals ??
Hmmmm wonder if I shouldn't be drinking it in the first place since it's NOT been rated ...

Anyhow, I will NOT be drinking rooibos tea late at night anymore.

I appreciate it immensely Schluggell, thank-u so much
