If you go to South Africa and order a “tea” you may be surprised what they serve you. It won’t be a black tea, a green tea, or an oolong. But instead they love to drink Rooibos - or Red Tea. Once you take a sip you will see why. Rooibos is 100% caffeine free making it great to drink at any time of day. It is also high in antioxidants. So much so that it has been shown to have 50% more antioxidants than green tea. But most importantly, rooibos is delicious. It is a clean woodsy flavor with a smooth finish of rich caramel and black pepper. After drinking a cup of rooibos, you will see why South Africans love this tea so much.
Organic Rooibos Tea
Our Rooibos is grown in the mountainous region of Cederberg, South Africa. The leaves are harvested during the peak of summer into early fall. In the morning, the farmers will hand cut the rooibos branches and send them to be processed. While being processed, the branches are sprinkled with water and bruised to promote oxidation for up to 24 hours. Next, the tea is air dried in special fields and sifted and graded where we purchase only the top 10%.
