Tea Farm

Tea Producer

Known for its unusual cliff formations, the Cederberg Mountains are home to the indigenous San people and constitute the original growing region for rooibos, which is why they are the global hub of rooibos cultivation. The region is named for the rare cedar trees that grow there, and is famous for its breathtakingly beautiful cliffs as well as prehistoric rock paintings of the San people, who were the first drinkers of rooibos tea and are the inventors of the standardised processing methods used to this day. \n \n The relatively large volume of precipitation that the region receives in the winter is stored in the limestone soil and supplies the rooibos plants with sufficient hydration during the hot summer days, which can reach up to 48°C. In the months of spring, the otherwise austere landscape bursts into a dense sea of wild flowers, which attracts tourists from all over the world.

Tea Farm

The farmer from whom we source this tea is one of the most renowned rooibos producers. His tea is certified organic, and his fields are located in the pristine natural region of the Cederbergs, a well-renowned region for rooibos.


A strongly aromatic, sweet rooibos tea with a fruity, rosehip-like aroma and soft, earthy, yet refreshing mineral notes


The rooibos plant belongs to the family of legumes and is endemic to the mountain ranges in the South Africa province of the Western Cape. To produce green rooibos tea, the plant's branches are cut close to the ground and picked. After harvest, the plants are mechanically cut, rolled, and sun-dried to halt oxidation. The green rooibos is then sorted out, steamed, and dried.

Cultivation & Processing

To encourage healthy, even growth, the rooibos plants are sprouted in small seedbeds during South Africa's late summer from February to March. For this process, the seeds are mechanically treated to increase the germination rate.

The following autumn, the young plants are relocated to fields in the Cederberg mountains and allowed to grow for 18 months until the first harvest. The bushes are trimmed at about 40cm above ground to encourage continued growth, allowing for up to 4 further harvests. After harvest, the plants are mechanically cut, rolled, and soaked, in order to begin fermentation. During fermentation, the rooibos gains its famed reddish brown colour. Flavonoids and sweet aromas become present during this process. The fermented rooibos is then sun-dried in order to interrupt the on-going fermentation process. In the last stages, the tea is sorted and steamed, then dried again.
