Benefits: The health benefits of Rooibos tea have been valued in South Africa for centuries. Recent research indicates rooibos tea is rich in powerful antioxidants, which help to slow the aging process, reverse the visible signs of aging and fight inflammation, but it can protect us from chronic disease, such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease, as well. Moreover, pear is high in fibre, vitamin c, potassium and folic acid.
Fun to know: Do you know that Italy consumes more pears than any other European nation? Or that Italy is the world’s second largest grower of pears after China? It’s true. Italians have been enjoying pears since the days of ancient Rome. Nowhere is this truer than in the breathtakingly beautiful villages of Tuscany. Tuscan chefs have created many recipes over the years, and routinely whip up such delicacies as pears poached in white wine, sliced pears with fresh Parmesan cheese or spicy pear pastries. Instead of wine, we decide to match the sweet profile of pear with the mellow character of a South African Rooibos. Brew a pot, relax and imagine you are under the Tuscan sun – perhaps sitting under a pear tree.
