Clanwilliam Rooibos is a tasty, aromatic, herbal tea that's completely caffeine free and is named after the area in South Africa where it is believed the original commercial cultivation of Rooibos took place. Fine needle like green leaves from the Aspalathus Linearis plant are harvested and fermented; a process that sees the leaves change from green to deep red. The resultant Rooibos leaves produce a very characteristic flavour and sweet aroma that can be enjoyed on their own or as part of a blend. Delicious with or without milk and sugar.
