Rooibos Tea is grown in the stunning and spectacular Cederberg Mountains in the Western Cape and has been valued by the Khoisan people of South Africa for many centuries. Rooibos Tea (also known as Redbush Tea) is adored for its sweet and soothing nature and can be drunk with or without milk and maybe a touch of sugar or honey for sweetness.
Our high-quality Rooibos Tea is grown on a redbush and grows around 3 feet tall; the leaves are needle-like and very similar to that of a pine tree making the Rooibos Tea plant very different to other traditional tea plants.
Although the Rooibos Tea is deep red in colour, the leaves are harvested when they are green and then are naturally fermented and dried, and it is this process that gives the leaves their deep rich, mahogany like a colour of red.

We love Redbush Tea because of its delicious flavour profile, it's naturally sweet while being calorie free. It tastes great hot and cold but does need to be brewed for a longer length of time than other teas.
To drink it hot pour over an infuser with a cup of hot water and then leave for 5-15 minutes dependant on the strength and taste you require. If you would like to sweeten your Rooibos Tea further, you can add honey, coconut sugar or any other natural sweetener.
Rooibos Tea is great as an iced tea, you just need to put two tablespoons of Rooibos Tea in an infuser with a cup of hot water, let it steep and then cool for at least ten minutes then pour over ice and serve immediately.
