Our Story

My Red Tea Organic Rooibos Tea is a passion for health, for fairness and for the environment

I created My Red Tea to share the benefits of our 100% Organic, natural and pure Rooibos tea with you.


Known to generations of South Africans, Rooibos is a naturally sweet and nutty flavor, is high in antioxidants, caffeine-free and bursting with vitamins and minerals. An excellent anytime, anywhere drink for the whole family.


We are a California, woman owned company, with a South African heart, and we pride ourselves on delivering superior quality Rooibos tea from the highest peaks of the Cederberg mountains in the Western Cape of South Africa.


My Red Tea Rooibos is harvested by hand, single origin and sourced from farmers who we personally know and trust.


My Red Tea is your tea for your health and your well-being, but it also belongs to our farmers and farm workers. We support fair trade principles and tea that is sustainably and ethically farmed. Each sale helps support local communities and create jobs. 10% of our profits support education and culture in our Rooibos farming communities.


Sustainable Packaging: We strive to use packaging and processes that have the least impact on the environment. Our teabags are unbleached and plastic free. Our packaging supplier is Forest Stewardship Council® certified, meaning they are committed to providing packaging solutions that are environmentally responsible. In 2015, our packaging supplier recycled 399 tons of material.


For more information on our products, please feel free to contact us directly at info@myredtea.com or visit our web site myredtea.com. We look forward to hearing from you.

Single Origin

My Red Tea is selective and sources Organic Rooibos from high in the Cederberg mountains. The higher the altitude, the less the rain, the lower the yield, the better the Rooibos. More rugged conditions translate into richer and more dense concentration of the good stuff and flavor.

We love our bees

Bees love the Rooibos flowers that offer rich rewards of nectar. However, as with all pea-flowers, the nectar is not available to all comers. It is only the unique foraging nature of the native Leaf Cutter and Carpenter bees that can trip the flowers for successful pollination.

Why the Donkey?

The donkey is a traditional means of transportation in the rugged Cederberg Mountains. It is not uncommon to see a donkey cart laden with freshly cut Rooibos on its way to be processed.

Rooibos

Good for any time of your day and any time of your life

“Rooibos has been a staple part of my diet from infancy and for generations of South Africans. Loved by children and adults alike, Rooibos has been used as a cure-all for everything from stomach ache to baby bum cream, to colic, or a soothing drink with honey for a bad cold. “ Kim, Founder My Red Tea
 
Unique to the Cederberg region of South Africa, Rooibos (pronounced roy-bos) thrives in the wild and as a cultivated crop. Rooibos is made from the leaves of the “red bush” plant called Aspalathus liners. 
 
Actually, Rooibos is not a tea at all, but rather a part of the broom-like member of the legume family of plants growing in South Africa’s fynbos region, one of the richest botanical areas in the world. The word, Rooibos, translates from the Afrikaans language as “red bush,” which refers to the way that the green, needle-shaped leaves turn red when they fall off the bush and oxidize in the sun.
 
Rooibos is very high in anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins. It does not contain caffeine and has low tannin levels compared to black and green tea.

Caffeine free Naturally sweet and 100% caffeine free, Rooibos is perfect for any age. A healthy alternative to other beverages and kids really love it.

A long history: Rooibos has been trusted by generations of South Africans and I’m excited to share this time honored tradition with you.
