Rooibos tea is prepared like any other tea, except that to diffuse its delicate fragrance it must be brewed longer. It usually takes between 5 and 10 minutes to brew and unlike tea it will never become bitter. South Africans traditionally drink rooibos tea with sugar and milk. But plain rooibos is also very good, as it has a natural nutty, slightly sweet flavor. It can also be flavored with vanilla or combined with other flavors to create gourmet or original infusions.
