Expiration Date:Expiration Date
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Rooibos is a mild, reddish-brown tea rich in antioxidants. Naturally caffeine-free, this slightly sweet and nutty brew can be enjoyed any time.
Botanical name: Aspalathus linearis
Rooibos (pronounced "roy-boss") is a broom-like member of the legume family of plants. It is made from the dried, oxidized young leaves and branches of Aspalathus linearis. Rooibos (translated from Afrikaans) means "red bush", which is why the tea is often refered to as bush tea or red tea. Used for centuries in South Africa, Rooibos is becoming more popular in Europe and the United States because of its lack of caffeine and smooth, mild flavor.
Rooibos is cultivated in the Cederberg region, which is a mountainous area north of Cape Town South Africa
To enjoy, pour 6 oz boiling water over one teaspoon of tea. Steep 3-5 minutes, strain and serve immediately.
Fair trade certified organic rooibos tea (aspalathus linearis).

Amazing organic rooibos tea.
Luxurious red tea with a delicious cinnamon aroma. Not only is it naturally caffeine free and has no known side effects and contraindications, but also it's packed with health benefits. Rich in vitamins C, K, E, A, B vitamins (folic acid, pantothenic acid, niacin, thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B6), manganese, magnesium, copper, iron, pota ssium, phosphorus, calcium, different amino acids, tannins, antioxidants, flavonoids, it's beneficial for people suffering from morning sickness, nausea, cardiovascular conditions, anemia, hypertension, headache, gluten intolerance and celiac disease, diabetes, leg cramps, arthritis, rheumatism, water retention, gallstones and gallbladder disease, IBS, asthma, colds, flues, asthma, gingivitis, canker sores and gum disease, acne, sunburn, eczema, psoriasis, and even cancer. Rooibos tea flushes toxins out of the body, aids digestion, prevents heartburn and acid reflux, relieves nausea and bloating, increases appetite, heals gastric ulcers, soothes the stomach lining, reduces colon inflammation, facilitates healing, boosts the immune system, helps stabilize blood sugar and regulate insulin levels, prevents blood spikes keeping you full longer, normalizes blood pressure, lowers triglycerides and LDL or "bad" cholesterol levels while increasing HDL or "good" cholesterol, protects against strokes, atherosclerosis and peripheral arterial disease, helps maintain healthy bones and teeth, soothes and heals dry and damaged skin, and even reduces the risk of cancer. It's also a wonderful natural sleep aid and stress reliever, helping you calm down, fall asleep faster and get a good night’s rest. Rooibos can also be applied topically to heal wounds, scars, bruises, cuts, burns, rashes and acne-affected areas of your skin. A rooibos mask or scrub improves the complexion, brightens and evens out skin tone, reduces redness, spots, blotchiness and small lines, helps break down old scar tissue and prevent premature aging. It's truly a wonderful tea and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to improve their overall health and well-being.
Beautiful flavor, larger leaves

This tea is what I've been looking for. Tea bags don't do it, and loose tea usually comes in little gift-y tins. Organic is great, if it's really organic. QAI doesn't list Frontier's rooibos as one of the products, but there are a lot of them - I may have missed it. In any case, research on rooibos shows it has anti-cancer properties if you brew it really hot - between 180 degrees F and 200 degrees F. So I'm more concerned about that than flavor, but it's absolutely delicious: it has a lot of similarities to Thai tea, with that warm barky flavor. I put in a touch of soy creamer or have it plain every morning. No caffeine jitters, no insomnia (which I get from green tea). I'm very pleased with this tea.
the taste & smell are awful

so it's like 50% or rooibos and 50% of other oxidized herb. definitely it's 100% rooibos but like "overfermented". big disappointment. that's the first rooibos in my life that's NOT OK. and that strange & pity given the price & provider
Love this tea!

The bag came a much bigger portion than expected. I was happily surprised. Have been drinking this everyday for a long time as it tastes good and very comforting for the stomach.
Caffeine free and great for the skin!

This has to be one of my favorite herbal teas! It's slightly sweet (so no need to add sugar) and has no tannins, so it's soft and delicate. Furthermore, it doesn't have any caffeine so it can be enjoyed at any hour of the day, and is a common remedy for insomnia, as well as high blood pressure and headaches. If it couldn't get any better, it's doing amazing things for my skin! This brand in particular is one of my go-tos on iHerb, as the value for the price cannot be beat!
