Rooibos Honeybush Tea

Special Tea

The country of origin for Rooibos tea is South Africa. Natives used Rooibos to make fruity, sweet tea long before the Europeans did. The branches of the shrub were dried in the sun and then cut into small pieces. The tea was first exported to far away countries in the 19th century, and its export has been growing ever since. There is also a green Rooibos tea that is less fermented. Just like Rooibos, Honeybush was discovered in South Africa in the 18th century. The Honeybush owes its name to its characteristic appearance. The blossoms are bright yellow and smell like honey, wheres the leaves are somewhat rougher than those of Rooibos. The South Africans call it "vegetable bush", due to its pod-shaped fruits and knobbly roots. All three of these teas have no caffeine and no acid which adds to the sweetness.

Green Cup Rooibos Pour
Red Rooibos
A high-quality Rooibos tea can be identified by its ruby color and the soft, sweet, characteristic, aromatic taste. The leaf points out rather long needles. Caffeine Free and acid free!
Green Rooibos
The well-known characters are there, although differences in both color and taste can be noticed. Very suitable tea for those who do not drink or must not drink caffeine.
The wild growing plants thrive exclusively on small mountain ranges in the Longkloof District. In the 1990s Honeybush was re-discovered and is cultivated today for commercial purposes in 35 different locations.
Brazilian Mate
This national beverage with caffeine originally comes from Paraguay, southern Brazil and Argentina. The tea comes from the green leaves of a type of holly that is said to have manifold beneficial effects. The caffeine is bound to tannic substances and is set free in the body very mildly.
