You’d be forgiven for not having heard of this South African tea, but thanks to the green needle-like leaves of the rooibos plant being naturally caffeine-free, along with its beautiful coppery colour and natural nutty and full-bodied flavour, this tea is fast becoming sought after as a great caffeine-free alternative to black teas. But what is it exactly, and why should you be making it your cuppa of choice?
It seems like everyone has their own way of saying rooibos – we like to say ‘roy-boss’ but many people prefer to stick to its literal meaning of ‘red bush’. You know where you’re at with red bush, but it’s just not as fun to say.
Botanically speaking, rooibos is not a true tea at all as it doesn’t come from the tea plant. It’s a herb that grows as a small shrubby bush in just one place - the Cederberg region of South Africa, near Cape Town. The ultra-clean air swirling around the craggy mountains provides the perfect environment for the rooibos plant. Efforts have been made to grow rooibos outside the Cederberg region but so far, none have been successful.
Fun fact for you, the red colour of this tea comes only from the fermentation process – the rooibos bush is actually green, just like the tea bush. More than 300 years ago, the original bushmen of the Cederberg area – the Khoi and San peoples – discovered rooibos. They would bash the leaves and pile them in heaps allowing them to ferment, then spread them out in the sun to dry. And that’s pretty much what the commercial rooibos production is like today. The drying out of the rooibos under the African sun changes the colour of the leaves to a deep mahogany.
This soothing drink is sweet and nutty in taste, is naturally caffeine-free and low in tannins. What's more, it’s packed with micronutrients, including copper, iron and potassium, and has become the ‘it’ tea for those looking for a healthy, yet tasty brew.
We've blended slightly sweet honeybush with the nutty tones of rooibos (Afrikaans for "red bush"), two native South African shrubs that complement each other perfectly. They grow only in the Cederberg mountain region of South Africa and are harvested and prepared in much the same way as regular tea. Naturally caffeine-free and nutrient-rich, you can drink it with milk as a caffeine-free replacement to your normal cuppa.
