rooibos - the RED TEA from South Africa

Rooibos is unique to South Africa
It is produced only in the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa. Rooibos (pronounced “roy-boss”) is an Afrikaans word meaning “red bush”, referring to the garnet colour of the herb leaves after fermentation.

Rooibos is a herbal tea that tastes like a regular tea
It is prepared from the leaves of the herb Aspalathus Linearis, whereas regular black and green tea is made with the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant.

Rooibos contains NO caffeine
Rooibos is naturally caffeine free. Even decaffeinated regular green tea has 30mg of caffeine per cup!

Rooibos has a wonderful flavour
It does not taste like a herbal tea at all - only like a sweeter version of regular teas. Rooibos has no bitter aftertaste - no matter how long it is left to brew!

Rooibos is known to boost general health
The health benefits of Rooibos for both adults and children are quite remarkable!

Rooibos is an everyday anytime beverage
It can be enjoyed throughout the day - primarily because it is an excellent thirst quencher. Rooibos can be served clear or with cream and sugar/honey, according to your usual preference. Served as iced tea, it is absolutely delicious!
