Rooibos is not a true tea, but a herb. The brew made from the dried Rooibos leaves is therefore a herbal infusion (known as a tisane) rather than a tea, but is widely known as Rooibos tea.
Rooibos has a distinctive colour, flavour and aroma, which differentiates it from most other teas. The flavour can be described as slightly sweet and fruity.
Rooibos is graded according to colour, flavour, and cut length.
Rooibos ages well and can be stored for long periods without any deterioration in quality, flavour and taste.
What is not well known is that Rooibos is produced in different regions of the Western Cape and a small area is under cultivation in the Northern Cape, South Africa.
There are about 450 rooibos estates in South Africa. In total they produce about 18000 Mt of rooibos each year.
We offer rooibos sourced directly from selected estates that meet with quality standards of international markets.
