What is Rooibos Tea?

Rooibos Tea (pronounced “Roybos”), sometimes also called red tea, is brewed from the dried leaves of the rooibos plant (Aspalathi linearis). This plant is a low-growing shrub native to South Africa, which is quite unlike traditional tea trees. The oxidised leaves, causing the reddish-brown colour of the beverage, create a smooth and naturally sweet sensation in your cup.

Taste of Rooibos Tea:

Our organic, loose leaf Rooibos Tea blend has a full bodied flavour, which is remarkably smooth and sometimes described as slightly nutty or earthy. The leaves’ natural sweetness is complemented by the cinnamon and vanilla.
