A Guide to Rooibos Tea

Originating from South Africa, more specifically the Western Cape province, rooibos tea has been known and loved by the country for decades. It is now becoming more recognized in other continents too, steadily gaining in popularity. 

Rooibos is seen as part of the herbal tea family. It is produced from the plant Aspalathus Linearis, native to South Africa. Depsite the shrub-like bush being green, in Afrikaans rooibos translates to 'red bush'. This is thanks to the processing of the tea, which turns the leaves into a rich red/brown colour that we associate with rooibos.

Rooibos is almost similar in flavour to mild black tea, with deliciously earthy yet refreshing underlined notes. Being naturally caffeine-free and full of healthy trace elements, including Vitamin C it is meant to give your body a feeling of wellbeing.

Our Rooibos collection includes plain and flavoured varieties of this classic infusion. Whether it might be Rooibos Hot Chocolate, or the absolute favourite of Rooibos Cream Orange or perhaps the almost traditional Rooibos Vanilla all of those flavours blend well with the traditional Rooibos. Of course if you prefer the true taste, our plain Rooibos will be the better choice for you.


How Rooibos Tea is Produced

Rooibos Tea - A Definitive Guide to the Production of Rooibos Tea

The production process of Rooibos tea is separated into three important stages: Cutting, fermentation & drying. How well each stage is carried out can affect the quality of the tea, so it is essential it is done to a high standard.

The harvesting of the rooibos bush is carried out in summer, after the small but beautiful yellow flowers appear on the plant. The leaves and stems, all above ground, are reaped with sickles and then taken to a processing area to be cut with a roller.

Once complete, rooibos leaves are left to ferment outdoors for around 12 hours all the while being regularly dampened. It is during this process that the rooibos will attain its renowned scent. 

Due to the intense heat of the country, the rooibos oxides outside in the warm, African sun. The result is the well-known red coloured leaves and refreshing flavor of rooibos tea.


history of rooibos tea

Rooibos Tea - The History of Rooibos Tea

The history of Rooibos tea is rooted in the Ceder Mountain area of the western cape province in the beautiful & vast country of South Africa.

The indigenous bushmen, known as the Khoisan’s, harvested the leaves from the Aspalathus Linearis plant for Centuries. Loved for the distinctive and delicious taste, the bushmen also used the leaves for many ailments and as herbal remedies.

Rooibos tea was nearly lost when the Khoisan’s tribes began to dwindle, only saved by a Botanist called Carl Humberg. He rediscovered the tea leaves and revived the interest in the relatively unknown drink.

The demand for Rooibos tea exploded in the 1960s when Annique Theron, a South African Mother, published a book on the health benefits of Rooibos tea. Many studies were conducted afterwards that established much more evidence of the health advantages of the tea and popularity soared.
