|Chocolate Cream Truffle Rooibos
The story of Rooibos starts around the turn of the century in South Africa s beautiful Cedarberg region. It was the locals of the area who first discovered that the fine needle like leaves of the wild Aspalathus Linearis plant made a tasty aromatic tea. It was they who first harvested the plants, chopped them with axes and bruised them with hammers leaving them to ferment before drying in the sun. Rooibos is an herb that contains no caffeine. Those that consume Rooibos have claimed that it has a soothing effect on headaches, disturbed sleeping patterns and digestive problems. There is an old saying that goes:You know your diet is in trouble when you count your blessings and chocolate is always the first one.Well, thanks to this wonderful herbal tea that no longer has to be the case. Why? The answer is simple. Rooibos, the base of the blend, is fat free! Best of all, it contains no caffeine.
