Organic Rooibos Tea 20 bags
Our rooibos is grown by farmers at the Wupperthal Original Rooibos Co-operative, a democratically organized group of small-scale farmers who have grown rooibos plants in South Africa for generations. Pushed off the most fertile land in the 1800s and later enduring segregation imposed by apartheid, they now grow food in the very dry, rocky soil of the Cedarberg Mountains, which is a big challenge. With Rooibos, however, slower growth and lower production resulted in notably higher quality tea compared to plantation Rooibos grown on the most fertile lands. Today, the vast majority of rooibos production is on plantations with white landowners, making Wupperthal a true gem in a rocky landscape.
