The Rooibos plant

Rooibos is produced from the plant Aspalathus linearis, a leguminous shrub unique to the Cederberg Mountains around the town of Clanwilliam and indigenous to the Western Cape of South Africa. It forms part of the Cape Floral Kingdom, commonly known as fynbos, and grows nowhere else in the world.

Rooibos – the healthy choice

Unlike many teas, Rooibos is naturally caffeine-free and low in harmful tannins. It contains no additives, preservatives, colourants or oxalic acid.
