Rooibos, meaning "red bush"; is a broom-like member of the plant family Fabaceae that grows in South Africa's fynbos. It is a distinctive type of vegetation found only on the southern tip of Africa. The leaves are used to make a herbal tea called by the names: rooibos, bush tea, red tea, or redbush tea. 

Rooibos is harvested and processed similar to the camellia sinensis tea plant. It is. cut by hand and its stems and leaves are bound into bundles, which are then sorted and cut to begin the oxidation process. Oxidation is what brings out the plant’s essential oils and helps the leaves develop their rich color and flavor. 

Our premium collection of loose leaf rooibos tea include a variety of flavor. Green rooibos tea is a less oxidized rooibos that is steamed and dried immediately after harvesting. 

Rooibos is naturally non-caffeinated and a rich source of antioxidants. It contains chrysoeriol, an anti-inflammatory property that can help blood circulation and help alleviate seasonal allergies.

How many cups of tea can I steep from 1oz of loose leaf tea?

The number of 8oz cups you can steep from 1 oz of loose leaf tea varies depending on the type of tea and the strength of the brew desired, but a general guideline is that 1 oz of loose leaf tea can make approximately 10 to 15 cups of tea. Typically, 1 teaspoon of loose leaf tea (about 2-3 grams) is used per 8oz cup of water. Since 1 oz is approximately 28 grams, this means you can steep roughly 10 cups if you use 2.8 grams per cup, or closer to 14-15 cups if you use slightly less tea per cup. Multiple steepings of high-quality loose leaf teas can further increase the number of cups you can brew from the same leaves.
