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.
The result is a lush, vibrant tea which blends beautifully with juicy tropical flavours of mango and papaya. A citrus twist of orange and a rainforest shower of cornflower petals make for a lovely-looking leaf - ideal for displaying pride of place on your kitchen shelf.

Rainforest flavour explosion by Ross Alexander Neale on 6th July 2017
Fantastic tea, huge amount of taste and flavour. I haven't found anyone that doesn't like it yet!
the best cafeine free tea on the market by Marina Human on 9th March 2016
My husband is South African and he introduced rooibos tea to me about 11 years ago. The tea bags from supermarket are lacking flavour and aroma. I was over the moon when I found Strawberry rooibos tea in a local Whittard shop a few years ago. I became a fan immediately. I am very pleased to see that Whittard are continuing to work with this plant and keep on producing more wonderful infusions. Rainforest rooibos has a distinctive "green tea" quality. It's a light bodied tea with a slightly grassy taste but at the same time it is naturally sweet. Bright herbaceous aroma with a hint of the exotic fruit add another dimension to the taste. Just remember you need to brew this tea properly. 2-3 minutes is simply not enough. I recommend about 8 minutes, water - 100C.

Herbal rooibos is unique to the Cederberg Mountains in South Africa’s Western Cape province, home to antelopes, leopards and lizards. The Khosian tribes had had been harvesting the leaves of the Aspalathus Linearis plant long before its discovery by the Dutch colonists, who applied the same process of oxidation used to create black tea. As a result, the green, needle-like leaves were transformed to a glowing red, giving the tea its name: rooibos or ‘red bush’ tea. As a herbal plant it’s caffeine free, and the only known source of the antioxidant aspalathin.
Both rooibos and green tea are known to be high in antioxidants, so you could call this tea the best of both We've given this tea the number 710, the area in km2 covered by the Cederberg Mountains.

Feeling the blues over breakfast? This fruity herbal brew will have you right back on your feet. Our eureka moment arrived over a breakfast bowl of fresh blueberries and yogurt: the honeyed tones of creamy rooibos work wonders with the brightness of blueberries, and blue cornflower petals make for a beautiful infusion. Lovely.More Details

Hot, sweet and spicy, our very special blend of rich rooibos tea with cardamom, cinnamon and cocoa kernels is the herbal equivalent of hot chocolate. Warming chai spices add a touch of exoticism, while the slight bittersweet bite of the cocoa is beautifully complemented by the creamy sweetness of rooibos. It's what you might call tea gourmandiseMore Details
