Organic Rooibos grown in Cederberg, a small mountainous area in the region of the Western Cape province of South Africa.
Rooibos or "red bush" or "red tea" is from a shrub native to South Africa that has been used by the native Khoi Khoi tribe for a beverage and coloring agent for several hundred years.
Rooibos tea in usually prepared in the same manner as black tea in South Africa, with milk and sugar added for taste. A slice of lemon or honey is added instead of sugar to sweeten.
Rooibos is caffeine free and has low tannin levels when compared with black tea and green tea.
Rooibos contains polyphenols, including flavanols, flavones, flavanones, and dihydrochalcones.
Traditionally, the local people of South Africa would trek into the mountains and cut fine, needle-like leaves from wild plants. They then rolled the leaves into bags and brought them down the mountain slopes on the backs of donkeys. The leaves were then bruised with hammers and chopped with axes, then left to dry in the sun.
