  • Full Description

    Most of the tea you'll taste comes from the Camellia sinensis plant, but rooibos is a whole other story: it's cultivated solely in the Cederberg mountains of South Africa where it's grown on small bushes producing green, needle-like leaves. The name “rooibos” or “red bush” tea refers to the deep russet colour of the leaves after the process of oxidation, highlighting their naturally rich, treacle-toned taste.

Origin: South Africa

Herbal rooibos and honeybush are unique to the Cederberg Mountains in South Africa, where they've been harvested by Khoisan tribes for centuries. The leaves are usually processed in a similar way to black tea, giving a fruity, caffeine-free infusion.

South African "Red Bush" Tea

Rooibos – a bush grown on the mountains of South Africa – has long been harvested to create a naturally caffeine-free herbal infusion with a smooth, treacle-toned taste. Seventeenth-century Dutch settlers soon developed a taste for the drink as a handy substitute for tea, but local bushmen had already passed down the secret of rooibos for generations. The leaves undergo a similar process to black tea, being oxidised for a distinctive reddish-brown colour and malty flavour. Occasionally, rooibos is produced in a more similar manner to green tea: you'll find this unusual "green" rooibos in our Rainforest Rooibos blend. Find out more about rooibos tea here.
