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 Cedarberg mountains of South Africa. Rooibos grows exclusively in the Cedarberg 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. Our handcrafted blend of Superfine grade organic Rooibos with fragrant herbs makes a golden-red brew.
