About Rooibos Chai / Spiced Rooibos

Rooibos chai, sometimes called red chai or more accurately, spiced rooibos or herbal masala chai is a blend of rooibos and spice, and can be viewed as a variant or imitation of masala chai (spiced tea) made with rooibos (usually red rooibos) instead of tea.

Rooibos chai is a bit of a misnomer, as "chai" means tea whereas "masala", the word that is usually dropped, is the word that means "spiced". This style of tea is also sometimes called herbal chai, although that term is a broader category that also includes spiced herbal blends that do not contain rooibos.

Rooibos-based chai has become popular due to the fact that it is completely caffeine-free, and yet richer in flavor than most decaffeinated teas. It has become a bit of a style in and of itself, and can be appreciated as-is rather than as an imitation of masala chai.
