We’re very careful to pick suppliers who support our values and care just as much about our world and its inhabitants as we do.
We strive to use packaging and processes that have the least impact on the environment. We selected a packaging supplier who 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.
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.
10% of the profits of My Red Tea are committed to support education in our Rooibos farming communities, and we respect fair trade principles. Every sale helps support local communities and create jobs.
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 lot has been written about Rooibos and possible health benefits. We do not make any claims, but you can read about studies and articles below. See Facebook for the latest news.
