Rooibos

The name Rooibosch or Rooibos (we say ‘roy-boss’) means red bush, thanks to the dark red colour it accquires during the oxidation process.
This sweet and naturally caffeine free tea was first harvested and used as a herbal medicine by South Africa’s KhoiSan people centuries ago.

Rooibos is a member of the pea family (Favaceae) and grows as a small, red-stemmed bush with long needle-like leaves and yellow pea-shaped flowers.

It is hard to believe, but the entire world’s supply of Rooibos tea is grown in the small, mountainous area of Cedarberg region in Western and Northern Cape Province of South Africa. Annually, around 6,000 -7,000 tonnes of Rooibos is harvested by 350-550 rooibos farms in the area.
