About Cape Town Rooibos:

Rooibos is a member of the legume family of plants, and is commonly used to make a tisane (herbal tea). It belongs to the Aspalathus genus of plants, which consists of more than 200 species originating in the Cederberg mountains of South Africa. Rooibos grows exclusively in the Cederberg Mountain region and around Clanwilliam and Citrusdal.

During summer and early autumn, the branches are hand-harvested and cut into smaller pieces. The raw Rooibos is then moistened with water, thoroughly bruised, then placed in heaps and allowed to oxidize for 8 to 24 hours. After oxidation, the herb is spread out in a special yard to dry naturally in the sun. Cape Town Rooibos, our handcrafted blend of Superfine grade organic Rooibos with fragrant herbs, makes a sweet and refreshing golden-red brew.

Ingredients: 100% Organic Rooibos (Aspalathus Linearis), 100% Organic Chamomile, 100% Organic Spearmint, Red Rose Petals, 100% Organic Orange Peel, 100% Organic Lemon Verbena.
