  • Inside Story

    Rooibos is an indigenous herb to South Africa's mountainous region Cederberg (north of Cape town) which is a World Heritage protected wildlife area. Rooibos tea is naturally caffeine free and contains 50 times more antioxidants than green tea. It takes about 18 months to grow. Then, its finely chopped, bruised and left to oxidise in heaps and then left to dry in the African sun, where it changes from a vivid green to a deep mahogany red.
