Thank you for the wonderful information that you have on rooibos raspberry soda sounds like a very good drink for children as well as adults. I also have a website called www.Digintoorganic.com

Sounds great, but there is a warning not to drink rooibos tea if you are pregnant or nursing.

Hi Kathy, I checked several resources and could not find information contraindicating rooibos during pregnancy. In fact the opposite! Can you tell me your source? http://stanford.wellsphere.com/green-living-article/rooibos-tea-good-for-pregnancy-breastfeeding-and-anytime/243198

I did a quick search, rooibos tea warnings, because I never had rooibos tea. The warnings were on webmd.com, healthline.com and PDRhealth.com, with references. I believe the warning stems from lack of evidence that it is safe during pregnancy, rather than from known adverse effects. I know how careful I was during pregnancy, so I thought I would comment on it.

Cynthia -- If I just want to make a big batch of this and keep it in my fridge for drinking over the next few days, is there any point in using the sparkling water? -- Carol

Hi Carol, Make a batch and leave out the sparkling water. Add that when you serve it.

This may sound nit-picky...but can a natural sparkling water be used? Do they even have a natural berry flavor? Also could raspberry juice concentrate be used instead? More honey may be needed though. Also, where does one buy 'Red Bush Tea? Is it sold loose/bulk? Thanks...

A.K. Any sparkling water is fine. And yes concentrate can be used, but you may need more sweetener. Red Bush tea is sold at almost any store that sells bulk tea. It is also often available in bags, but I prefer the loose tea (less expensive).
