Organic Rooibos Tea
Pronounced ROY-boss and meaning “red bush” this tea is exclusively grown in the rugged Cederberg region of South Africa. Rooibos thrives where the ocean’s purified air and clear mountain streams add nourishment to the plains and mountain slopes. A beverage the local population has been consuming for centuries, this broom-like bush ranges in height from 3 to 6 feet. Rooibos has many unique properties that medical professionals are just beginning to appreciate. You can discover more in our blog on the Health Benefits of Rooibos Tea.
Once Rooibos has been harvested, it is dried or fermented in the sun, the tea gains its reddish color. Those leaves left unfermented are categorized as Green Rooibos. Red Rooibos exhibits a fresh, fruity flavor while Green Rooibos Tea tastes more herbal and earthy. This tea is smooth in flavor and contains fewer tannins than many other varieties.

Rooibos may be heralded the world over as a wonder plant because it contains rare ingredients - aspalathin isolated from Aspalathus linearis, the tea's botanical name, and glucoside nothofagin.
