Distinctive, organically grown rooibos from the cedar mountains of South Africa - wholesome, fruity and caffeine-free. The subtle tangerine note adds to the uniqueness of this blend.
The rugged beauty of the "Cederberg Mountain" region in the southwest of South Africa is the home of the Rooibos plant - about 200 km north of Cape Town, around the towns of Clanwilliam and Citrusdal. It is found exclusively in this area of the world, so it is not surprising that it has made it into South Africa's national drink.
It is not exactly clear how old rooibos (Afrikaans rooi = red and bos = bush) is, but in 1772 it was first described by the botanist Carl Thunberg as a medicinal plant of the Khoisan people.
Unlike black or green tea, rooibos tea contains no caffeine and few tannins, which means that possible effects such as a bitter taste or insomnia do not occur.
To give the rooibos a more exclusive touch, we have blended it with a little hibiscus and tangerine, an Asian variety of the tangerine more familiar to us. The result is a great tea with a wonderful aroma that can be enjoyed late at night.
Good to know...
Rooibos should be brewed at a water temperature of 95-98°C (leave the water in the kettle for a short time after boiling and wait until it stops boiling).
