Additional Information

A lush, vibrant loose leaf green rooibos infusion with juicy tropical flavours of mango and papaya, a citrus twist of orange and a rainforest shower of cornflower petals.

  • Full Description

    Herbal rooibos tea from the Cederberg Mountains in South Africa is usually processed in a similar manner to black tea, turning the green, needle-like leaves to a rich russet colour as they react with the oxygen in the air.

    If you're fond of the naturally sweet, honeyed taste of rooibos and the fresh, verdant flavours of a good green tea, you might like to try this more unusual style of green rooibos, created by heating the leaves to stop the oxidation process.

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.
