Green rooibos is harvested from the same South African plant as the traditional red rooibos, but is processed differently. Whereas the red rooibos leaves are bruised and oxidised, the green rooibos leaves are specially treated to prevent oxidation, leaving them closer to their natural state. The resulting brew is lighter-bodied, less citric-piney than red rooibos and delivers a woody-grassy cup with natural sweetness and fruit notes. The sweetness and low tannin content of green rooibos tea ensures a smooth, never bitter brew that requires little, if any, sweetener. Like red rooibos it is also naturally caffeine-free and great plain or flavoured, hot or iced for anytime enjoyment.

This is a decaf tea | Steep at 100°C for 5 minutes.

ingredient

fresh from origin

The rooibos bush (pron: 'roy-bus') grows only in the Cederberg Mountain range of South Africa. It was first noted by botanist Carl Humberg in 1772. A century later, Benjamin Ginsberg, a Russian immigrant, realised its marketing potential and in 1904 began offering it as a herbal substitute to tea. The difficulty of shipping tea during World War II boosted demand for rooibos, which began to be referred to as 'Red Bush Tea', or simply 'Red Tea'. In Japan, rooibos is believed to aid longevity and is known as 'Long Life Tea'.
