Organic Rooibos Tea aka Red Bush

Rooibos, pronounced 'Royboss,' is a shrub similar to broom with green needle-like leaves and yellow flowers, from the Fabaceae family. The plant grows wild in South Africa's fynbos - Cederberg-  a shrubby mountain region of the Western Cape. 

Rooibos has been harvested by the locals to make a herbal caffeine free tea for hundreds of years. Whilst described as a 'tea', Rooibos does not originate from Camelia Sinensis and so is more properly described as an infusion.

Rooibos stems and leaves are green when harvested but undergo an oxidation process which transforms their colour. The long stems are bundled, 'bruised' and watered and then left to slowly dry (ferment) which encourages oxidation to take place, producing an orangey-red colour as they oxidise. The longer the oxidation time, the more intense the colour whilst a richer and sweeter flavour develops. 

Infusion: Steep 1 generous teaspoon of tea per person in boiling water for 4-5 mins. Add a dash of milk if desired - although rooibos equally tastes good without.

Storage: Store tea in an airtight jar away from sources of heat and light. 

Ingredients: Rooibos* (Aspalathus linearis) *organically produced.
