I love the flavour of rooibos in dessert recipes. It adds an earthy smokiness which offsets the sweetness beautifully. Rooibos tea is native to South Africa, and is essentially a herbal tea rich in anti oxidants and naturally caffeine free.

African Extracts Rooibos recently sent me their AdvantAGE range, a beautiful line of anti-ageing skin care products packed full of natural ingredients and Bio-Active Rooibos. With Rooibos yet again on my mind, I thought I’d try a couple of recipes inspired by the wonderful plant. A plant that is both good for your skin and for your body.
