Naturally sweet, nutty, honey flavoured notes, & lack of bitter tannins make this red beverage one of the most palate-pleasing types of tea.
Rooibos (pronounced ‘roy-boss’), literally ranslates to “red bush”. While it’s often referred to as a “tea”, it is in fact an herb. It is harvested, processed, & consumed in a similar fashion to black tea, but is naturally caffeine free, making it a great tea for the whole family, that can be enjoyed any time of the day.
The Cederberg Mountains in South Africa’s Western Cape is the only place where Rooibos grows naturally. While farmers have tried to grow it in other parts of the world, the climate, soil, & conditions are optimal in South Africa. In fact, Rooibos has received a “Geographical Indicator Status”, which means it can only be called Rooibos if it’s sourced from Cederberg & the surrounds.
