Rooibos tea

Cattus | May 30, 2003 03:06 PM

I was scrolling through the posting on S. African restaurants and noticed someone mentioned Rooibos tea. The first time I smelled and tasted the stuff, it reminded me of dirt. Gradually though I came to like it and its touted as extremely healthy, much more so than green tea with more antioxidants, etc. If fact, it is not really tea, but some other kind of bush.

My question...there is tea shop on the corner Fairfax and Rosewood across from Eat-A-Pita that specializes in Rooibos but seems never to be open. Has anyone actually been to this place? How was it?
