Not sure if you happen to live near a Trader Joe's, but we buy Rooibos tea there.

It's also called Red Tea. Celestial Seasonings has some so any store should have it. If you see that brand in your store but no Red Tea, have them order it. It's called Madagascar Vanilla Red. You can locate a store which sells it near you here http://www.celestialseasonings.com/t...re_locator.php

I just used the locator and it didn't list the two closest stores to me that carry it. So I would just go to your regular store and ask them to order it.

You won't believe this, but I got kosher for Passover rooibos tea from Manischewitz! Try the International/Kosher aisle in your regular supermarket to see if they still have it left over. It was cheap and tasty, better and less expensive than the stuff I got from Whole Foods while I was pregnant.

my husband and I sell some that is excellent ....

http://www.nivaorganics.com/com/comp...page/Itemid,1/

we have regular red bush (rooibos)

and green bush ... which is made from the same plant only isn't oxidized so it's higher in nutrients

it's also in a great blend called jamaica red bush
