Favorite Rooibos?

nooodles | Jan 9, 2006 12:21 PM

I was recently introduced to this African tea, and really enjoy it as an alternative to my usual lineup. In addition to having a unique flavor and beautiful deep red color, rooibos is supposed to be high in antioxidants and have all kinds of health benefits.

To me, the flavor is like a cross between a black tea and hibiscus tisane (unsweetened jamaica, for those who like Mexican drinks).

Do people have a favorite brand of rooibos? I haven't looked for it in a supermarket, but assume it's available at higher end markets and specialty food shops.
