DUCKY LIFE TEA

Beyond Caffeine
Health Benefits of Honeybush and Rooibos

The first question most customers ask when choosing tea is: caffeine or no caffeine?

And they choose based on that one criteria. But there is more to teas and tisanes than caffeine content!

Consider this recent research on two of our most popular, healthiest brews: Honeybush and Rooibos. They are more than just "caffeine-free." They are also chock full of minerals and electrolytes, contain high levels of antioxidants, very low levels of tannins -- and are delicious.

Ducky Life Tea offers: Mona's South African Honeybush, Tony's Rooibos Lime Blend -- and the season sip, Penelope's Pumpkin Rooibos Pleasure. Try one today.
