Wiedouw Rooibos - Long Cut Organic

Tisane (Herbal Tea)

Wiedouw, Western Cape, South Africa

The most tea-like of herbal teas, 100% organic, naturally caffeine free Rooibos (also known as Redbush tea) is renowned for its health properties. This single estate Rooibos has been selected exclusively from the Wiedouw tea farm in the Cederberg mountains of South Africa, has been organic since 1997 as well as Rainforest Alliance and Fair-trade certified. The production process has remained largely unchanged and makes use of the natural hot and sunny climate, where the tea is entirely handpicked and cured naturally in the sun. This award winning special long-cut Rooibos has a soothing aroma and sweet vibrant taste with an almost 'tea-like' texture that produces multiple flavorsome cups using the same leaves.

Grown only in the Cederberg mountains in the semi-desert Western Cape of South Africa, Rooibos – Afrikaans for ‘red bush’ – is naturally green but gets its deep red colour and rich flavour from fermentation similar to that of black tea. The only single estate Rooibos avilable in the UK, grown organic since 1997 on the Wiedouw farm near Vanrhynsdorp.

Although in 1772 botanist Carl Thunberg was the first Westerner to mention this wild shrub, the indigenous Khoisan were well aware of Rooibos’ remarkable health benefits and had been brewing it for centuries. The Cape’s early Dutch settlers adopted Rooibos instead of expensive black tea from Europe. In 1904 Russian immigrant Benjamin Ginsberg, recognising its potential, became the first to trade it from the Bushmen and pioneered its cultivation. More recently, Rooibos has become famous for being the favourite drink of Precious Ramotswe of ‘The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency’ novels.
