Rooibos is also called “bush tea.” Rooibos is in fact a shrub with yellow flowers that grows naturally near Cedar Mountain. Although this shrub can grow as tall as half a meter to a meter, this plant is usually harvested at a height of 20 cm during the period January through March.

The needle-like leaves are green when picked. Then the leaves are bruised and wetted, triggering a chemical fermentation process. This creates the beautiful dark red color, after which the needles are placed in the African sun the next day to oxidize further. For this reason, rooibos is also called “red tea” in addition to “bush tea.”

Honeybush originally grows only in South Africa. The yellow flowers of the Honeybush plant smell of honey and that is where this special plant gets its name.

Foodpairing

Within the “taste line” we pay special attention to tea & food pairing.

43 South Africa Taste Honey
Experience the amazing taste sensation of this delicious tea in combination with a sweet dish, for example a piece of chocolate with a cocoa content of more than 65%.

The gently sweet taste of this delicious tea has a magical effect on the mouthfeel. The more pure the cocoa the tighter (astringent) the mouthfeel. Combined with the gently sweet tea, it’s almost magical how the mouthfeel feels a lot softer.
