Rooibos comes from the rugged slopes of the Western Cape Mountains in South Africa. In 1772, botanist Carl Humberg discovered that the locals of the Cape's Cedarberg region made a sweet tasting "tea" of the indigenous "red bush" plant. They picked the stems and leaves, bruised them with hammers, left them in piles to ferment, and then dried them in the sun. Traditionally drunk by the region's Khoi peoples, the infusion tastes like black tea yet has no caffeine, is low in tannin, and is packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
"A welcoming shade that embraces, this happy and friendly orange is good natured in spirit and delicious in its appeal."

This might be my favorite tea. I discovered this at a work conference and knew I had to order some
I first tried the Vanilla Rooibos at a hotel. I enjoyed it so much I made sure I had it everyday while I was there. Once I learned that I could order it online, I keep a constant supply and my home. This tea smells amazing, has a wonderful flavor and is organic. Each sachet makes a generous amount of tea thereby stretching my supply. I absolutely love this flavor.
This tea is delicious!!
