From Rare Tea Company

Wild Rooibos is a richly delicious, caffeine free infusion.

This is the real bush-tea from the Cedarberg Mountains of South Africa.
Completely wild it is harvested by hand on horseback, protecting the delicate ecosystem where the endangered Cape Leopard roams.

By leaving the mountains uncultivated or grazed the delicate ecosystem survives intact. The plants in this arid region are unique and perfectly adapted. Among them is rooibos.

Growing in its natural habitat it needs nothing to flourish unlike its cultivated counterparts. It needs no pesticides, no herbicides and no irrigation. For fertilizers it has leopard shit. This is far beyond organic farming. Stopping to make a small fire and brew tea it all makes sense. The taste is incredible. Its deep rich berry flavours are incomparable to the bland, commercial crop.

This is no ordinary tea harvest. But then rooibos (Afrikaans for ‘red bush’) is no ordinary tea. Strictly speaking a legume, the needle-like leaves produce a deeply delicious caffeine-free drink. It has been drunk for many thousands of years by the people of this area.

I can’t believe I am going to say this…but…this one bored me. It wasn’t bad…but it wasn’t memorable or much of anything…it just…was. So…I decided to add Agave Nectar…didn’t add much flavoring to it actually…so I added some milk…again not much added flavor just a change in color to the liquid…then I added some cinnamon…that helped spice it up a bit! It was alright with some additives but it did take some effort. On to the next…

I don’t see how ‘wild’ rooibos would be much different from regular rooibos, really. Except for the leopard shit maybe. ;D

I’ve been eyeing this on their website. I think I’ll pass now!
