ORGANIC ROMAN PROVENCE © WISE TEA GARDEN®
  Rooibos (Aspalathus linearis) and Honeybush (Cyclopia Vent. species) are popular indigenous South African herbal teas enjoyed for their taste and aroma. Traditional medicinal uses of Rooibos in South Africa include alleviation of infantile colic, allergies, asthma and dermatological problems, while a decoction of Honeybush was used as a restorative and as an expectorant in chronic catarrh and pulmonary tuberculosis.
Enjoyed in South Africa for centuries as a healthy alternative to soft drinks, Rooibos was the first presented to the Western World by a Russian émigré named Benjamin Ginsberg. Like Camellia Sinensis (a tea plant), Rooibos is an environmentally sensitive plant. It only grows commercially in one small area of South Africa - Cederberg district. The soil conditions, rainfall and sunshine of this area cannot be duplicated. Having wonderful taste and being caffeine free, Rooibos also has many beneficial properties: It is high in polyphenols (antioxidants), iron, zinc, fluoride, calcium and magnesium. Rooibos tea (Aspalathus linearis) has been used to treat inflammatory disorders in Africa. Rooibos means Red Bush in Afrikaans.

Steeping Time: Brew Rooibos and Flavoured Rooibos for 5 minutes.
Shelf life of nitrogen-flushed and vacuum sealed packs: 20-22 years.

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. Cut Rooibos is bound and milled to a uniform length then bruised between rollers to trigger the fermentation process, which results in the characteristic flavour and sweet aroma. Cup Characteristics: Organic and pure with fruity sweet notes. Ingredients: Organic rooibos. Infusion: Reddish orange to full color (depends on brewing time and quantity used).
