Rooibos Tea Fish Rub

Rooibos Tea Leaves

A Rooibos Tea Fish Rub might seem odd to many but Rooibos is a tea we can claim as our very own here in South Africa which makes it rather special. Free from caffeine and low in tannins normally found in black teas, Rooibos tea is preferred by many, especially before bed. There is nothing like relaxing with a cup of tea and a good book but the use of Rooibos tea is not limited to simply drinking. Rooibos is now added to many beauty products for its nutrient properties. Try this Rooibos Tea Fish Rub for a creative way to include this proudly South African tea.
