In my tea cupboard, I found a box of Rooibus tea. It is caffeine free and has no other ingredient than the leaves. Is it safe?

I’ve had rooibos tea during my treatment with no ill effects. It’s touted as being full of antioxidants, which certainly can’t hurt right now while your body is eliminating toxins. I would just recommend you keep an eye out for any reactions and only drink it once a day for several days before adding it in more often. Dried teas of any kind can contain mold.August 11, 2013 at 8:06 pm #108954
Good to know about the potential mold. Thanks Shayfo!August 12, 2013 at 12:51 pm #108980

Thanks in advance for your response!
I used Freshpak Rooibos tea. On their face book page I asked them a question, “Is your tea fermented or oxidized?”
They replied , “Its fermented first and then oxidized.”
So I don’t know if the fermented admission means we can’t have it on our diet? I’ve just steered clear of it for the moment to be extra-sure.
