    Rooibos, with its earthy, nutty, grassy, almost smoky notes, is gloriously high in antioxidants. While a cup of rooibos on its own is all well and good, you can also jazz it up. The flavors in this mocktail seem to compete in the mouth, creating a real depth of taste. Enjoy it during or after your Dry January experience.
