Rooibos Products

The introduction of Rooibos tea to the world was a slow process and if it hadn’t of been for one South African housewife the tea might not of ever been known to the world. Indigo Herbs has a fantastic representation of this fine tea which is bursting with vital antioxidants. Our Rooibos tea comes from the exact geographical location where Rooibos was traditionally grown and harvested by the indigenous Khoisan tribes. We hope that you’ll enjoy this refreshing premium quality caffeine free alternative to black tea.

The history of this tea is an interesting story since at several points during its past the tea has nearly disappeared into obscurity. The first people to cultivate Rooibos were the Khoisan Bushman who used to climb the mountains of the Cederburg region of South Africa and pick the spiny leaves of the Aspalathus linearis plant. They prized this bush for its fine taste and medical properties and used to crush the leaves and leave them to oxidise slightly before drying them for use as tea. The botanist Carl Humberg in 1772 noted this practice before the last remnants of the Khoisan tribe died out from urbanisation. Humberg revitalised the interest in the Aspalathus linearis plant whereupon it took on the name Rooibos from the Afrikaans for ‘red bush’. The tea again nearly disappeared until the business man Benjamin Ginsberg decided to start marketing the tea the world over as an alternative to black tea. During the Second World War it was used exactly for this purpose as Europe found it increasingly difficult to find good sources of black tea from Asia. The final step in Rooibos tea becoming well-known was in 1968 when a South African housewife named Annique Theron decided to write a book praising the medical virtues of Rooibos. After the book was published several scientific studies were conducted and soon the name of Rooibos spread throughout the world.

The Aspalathus linearis plant is a part of the legame family and is unique to the Fynbos region of South Africa. This is the only place where this special plant grows naturally. Each bush can reach up to 2 meters in height with spiky green leaves and red stems and branching. In early summer the plant produces very small yellow flowers which in turn produce one small seed each. Rooibos is able to withstand periods of extreme drought from having a very deep taproot which can be become as large as the plant growth above ground.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

This Rooibos Tea can be made into a hot drink by infusing the herb in a teapot or cafetiere with boiling water. Use 1 cup of boiling water per person. Let the tea brew for 5 - 15 minutes. Strain the leaves and enjoy.

Serving:

Prepare a cup or pot of tea by putting 1 teaspoon of Leaf per person. Add milk for the customary English way or with lemon and honey the South African way.

1 teaspoon equals 2 grams (1 tsp = 2g)
  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
  • Re-sealable air tight, foil pouch.
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Rooibos Tea comes from plants grown under strict supervision and soil checked regularly for heavy metals and toxins. When this perennial is at peak maturity the leaves are separated from the root and air dried in the shade so none of the chemical constituents are destroyed by the sun. The leaf cut is then tested again for any pollutants before being shipped. This process complies with GMP standards and has the Indigo Herbs seal of approval.

None known. It is safe for breast feeding mothers to drink.

Dragonfly Organic Cape Malay Chai (20 bags). Inspired by Cape Town's 300 year culinary traditions, this naturally caffeine free spiced tea perfectly fuses European and Asian influences. It is one of our most popular teas. Warming Cape Malay spices are blended with rooibos tea from Cape Town's Cedarberg Mountains. The rooibos is still cured in the traditional way and requires great skill to harvest well — one sign that it is ripe for harvest is the wild honey bees that flock to the bushes.Indigo Herbs has selected some of the best dietary supplements, teas & snacks from other leading health brands to complement our own extensive range of nutritionally dense superfoods, wholefoods, herbal powders and loose leaf teas.
