Rooibos: The Morning Kickstart

While 46% of men prefer starting their day with a cup of coffee, a significant 30% opt for Rooibos as their sunrise sip. Dr. Gerald Maarman, a renowned biomedical scientist and Rooibos researcher, commends this choice, emphasizing Rooibos’ natural sweet taste, rich antioxidant profile, and caffeine-free nature, making it an excellent morning beverage.


Stress Management and Relaxation

In the hustle and bustle of daily life, managing stress is crucial. The survey found that many South African men turn to specific beverages to help them relax. Rooibos emerged as a top choice, with 11% of men drinking it to combat stress and 32% choosing it to unwind after a long day. This preference underscores Rooibos’ soothing properties and its ability to support relaxation and well-being.

In social settings, Rooibos ties with beer as the preferred drink among men, each at 47%.
