Granny’s Nineteenth Pearl

Pearls of wisdom from an octogenarian who’s seen it all…

Rooibos Tea


First of all….

This. Is. Not. Tea.

It’s a tisane or herbal infusion. There is no tea in it.

Is it a ‘delicious caffeine free alternative to tea’? I don’t think so. I hate tea. But I hate this stuff even worse.

It must be good for you because it’s herbal. Yeah. Sure. Hemlock is a herb, as is deadly nightshade. And the only person I know who drank it in large quantities got the shits so badly she was afraid her bum was gonna fall out.

If you like the stuff drink it. Just don’t preach about it
