Freshpak Rooibos Teabags is incredibly smooth and gentle with a natural sweetness and slightly nutty taste. When brewed for longer, rooibos is full-bodied and rich, and you can smell the warm woody notes rising from your cup or teapot. It’s an iconically South African hot beverage that boasts a warm, red-golden colour.
Grown in the foothills of the Cederberg mountain range, the Western Cape has a lovely effect on the rooibos bushes. Once harvested and tended to by the warm African sun, only the finest leaves are picked for the bags. This creates a wonderfully aromatic tea, that is well balanced in strength. With Freshpak Rooibos Teabags, it’s not just tea-time, it’s tradition.
The tea comes from the shrub Aspalathus Linearis, which is on the slopes of Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. While locals have aware of the Benefits of Rooibos and been drinking it for decades, it only began being commercially traded in 1904. Now, it’s popular in Japan, Germany, Holland and England. According to recent studies, the tea has 50 times more antioxidants than green tea!
