You'll need a good juicer. Rooibos (redbush) is a herb-type plant that only thrives in the Cederberg mountain area, about 200 kms north of Cape Town, South Africa. Its health properties have been increasingly studied and confirmed in recent years and the tea (tisane, or infusion) of rooibos has become popular in Western countries and is available in the herbal tea section of many supermarkets as well as specialty health stores. Babies that grow up in South Africa are often fed rooibos tea from the bottle. It is high in antioxidants and micro-nutrients, and contains no caffeine. Since I live near to where rooibos is grown and I have a newfound love affair with juicing fresh fruits, I want to share this awesome iced tea, packed full of goodness. You won't need to sweeten this iced tea, since there is so much sweetness and deliciousness in the fresh apple juice. The ginger adds zing and has additional health benefits, and the lemon adds a hint of tartness and of course Vitamin C.
