The tea industry has dubbed the reddish-brown herbal infusion this herb makes African red tea or red bush tea, even though it is actually an herbal tisane. The reported health benefits of rooibos (due to its high levels of health-promoting antioxidants) have contributed to its increased popularity as a beverage and ingredient in health-oriented products.

Some teas are recommended for brewing with boiling water, while others are brewed at lower temperatures. Even when brewing a tea at a lower temperature, it is recommended that you first boil the water (to kill bacteria etc.) and then allow the water to cool to the correct temperature (ice cubes speed up the process). While you can certainly brew any tea with boiling water, it will change the flavor of the tea.
