Tea: Wild Harvest Rooibos, Direct Trade
Origins: Cederberg Mountains, South Africa
The real South African Red Bush. Beyond organic, this Rooibos is harvested completely wild in its indigenous habitat. A richly delicious infusion with deep earthy notes, bright red berries, and cedar.
This is real bush-tea - it's beyond organic and indigenous. To protect the delicate ecosystem of the Cederberg Mountains it's harvested on horseback with machetes, ensuring no damage is done to the fragile local environment. This is sustainable farming at its best.
This is no ordinary tea harvest. But then Rooibos (Afrikaans for 'red bush') is no ordinary tea. Strictly speaking a legume, the needle-like leaves produce a deeply delicious caffeine-free drink. It has been used as a medicine to cure innumerable ills and drunk for pleasure for many thousands of years by the people of this area.
Not just one infusion
Our rare teas are of such high quality that the same leaves can be infused several times. Each time you infuse the tea different subtleties of the delicate flavours will be released.
It is essential that the tea leaves are not left to stew once they have been infused; straining the tea completely between infusions will prevent the leaves from becoming bitter - it's akin to cooking a steak to perfection and then leaving it in the frying pan.
In China it is widely believed that the second or third infusion of fine tea is the best.
Cost per cup is $0.45, based on 2.5 g tea and two infusions.
