Phyto-Estrogens in Rooibos Tea

Hi!

I am currently trying to avoid all beverages that contain caffeine and even going to abstain from green-tea. I am considering Rooibos Tea as an alternative, since it has antioxidant properties (not so potent as green tea does, though), but there is a rumor that it also has some phyto-estrogens.

Since i am a real tea-junkie and much of the water i drink during the day comes in the form of tea, it means that i am gonna drink this rooibos a lot! But… it is a T-Nation and i don’t want make myself eventually look for E-Nation, if you know what i mean :slight_smile:

Any concerns on that topic? I am trying to find the studies but in vain as for yet.

When in doubt, just drink white tea - more thermogenics, less caffeine. It tastes better to me, as well.
