Rooibos Teas

Rooibos is naturally caffeine free and is made from the leaves of a bush belonging to the Papilionace family (named after their picturesque "butterfly" flowers). The bush is part of the legume family (e.g. peas, beans and peanuts) and grows to about four feet in height with an appearance very similar to sagebrush. Grown commercially in the Cedarberg region of South Africa's Western Cape since the 1700's, Rooibos' earthy, slightly sweet, and refreshing flavor is now enjoyed worldwide.
