All About Organic Rooibos Tea
This ancient South African tea, sometimes called "Red Tea," is a cultural delicacy loved around the world since it was first imported in the late 1700s.
Our Organic Roobis comes straight from Cederberg outside, a small mountainous area where it's been harvested for hundreds of years.
Rooibos contains many essential nutrients like Iron, Potassium, Calcium, Zinc, and has long been regarded for its healing properties. Brew yourself a cup, and see why it's been an African delight for generations.
