From Thé Santé

The story of Rooibos starts around the turn of the century in South Africa’s beautiful Cedarberg region. It was the locals of the area who first discovered that the fine needle like leaves of the wild “Aspalathus Linearis” plant made a tasty aromatic tea. It was they who first harvested the plants, chopped them with axes and bruised them with hammers leaving them to ferment before drying in the sun.

Rooibos is a herb that contains no caffeine. Those that consume Rooibos have claimed that it has a soothing effect on headaches, disturbed sleeping patterns and digestive problems. Rooibos seeds are planted during February and March. They are tended for 18 months after which they are harvested. Cut Rooibos is bound and milled to a uniform length then bruised between rollers to trigger the fermentation process, which results in the characteristic flavor and sweet aroma.

When in the mood for a straight red rooibos, this scores! It’s got all the different flavours I ever got from other ones I have tried, perfectly balanced. Rooibos has this distinctive taste which I really can’t put words on, but I tend to forget about it since I often drink flavoured ones, in which I almost never taste any rooibos at all. And when I do, it’s always only a very unidimensional taste – this plain rooibos is all but unidimensional, it really has depth in flavour. Love it!

(I notice I’m the only one who ever drank tea from this company on Steepster. Their store is really close to my place and they are really nice people with a big selection, so if you’re curious, don’t be shy and check their website at www.teasante.com, you can order online! I never tried of their flavoured stuff, but many of their straight teas are worth a try for sure!)
