Why We LOVE Rooibos Tea

Rooibos tea is naturally soft in taste and is caffeine-free. One of the reasons we love it is that it's a very versatile tea! It can be drunk in abundance any time, day or night. It makes a perfect baseline for many other flavours, and blending Rooibos with orange, Chai spices, and vanilla makes this unique red tea is universally popular. 

Rooibos Tea contains no bitter tannins, so no matter how many times you brew the tea or how long you leave it in the pot, it will never get bitter. It is packed with Vitamin C and full of antioxidants, minerals such as iron, calcium and potassium, and alpha-hydroxy acid, promoting good skin health. 


History of Rooibos Tea

Rooibos or 'redbush tea' is the national beverage in South Africa. For centuries, it has been drunk by the Khoe-San or indigenous folks of the region. Today, over sixteen thousand tonnes of the Rooibos tea are exported globally.

Unlike the traditional tea plant (Camellia sinensis), the Rooibos plant (Aspalathus linearis) is a fine-leaved, rugged and wild-looking shrub that is not at all red. Instead, the bush has soft needle-like green foliage and yellowish flowers that emerge in the spring. The bush thrives in the picturesque fields around the Cederberg coastal mountains close to the Western Cape province of South Africa. Incredibly, the region's topography is particularly suited to the Rooibos plant and attempts to grow it elsewhere have failed - making Rooibos tea genuinely unique.

The distinctive red colour comes from the fermentation process, similar to traditional black tea production. Farmers harvest by hand, bruise and distress the cuttings, then leave them to dry in the natural sun. The oxidisation process is entirely natural and beings shortly after harvest.
