Mangoes originated in Southeast Asia, where they had been cultivated for over 4,000 years. Since their discovery, mango groves have spread to many parts of the world, though mostly the tropical and sub-tropical climates. There are over 1,000 different varieties of the mango plant in existence, and India alone produces half of the world's supply. Mangoes are used widely in the culinary world, from sweet sticky rice, to delicate chutneys, to spicy and savory pickles. It's also an important part of non-food life in several cultures; both the fruit and leaves are used for decoration, religious ceremonies and weddings.

behind some of our most popular teas.
How long have you been growing tea?
“32 years. I started working as a laborer on a neighboring Rooibos Farm and for the past 14 years I have been growing Rooibos on my own farm.”
What got you started in the tea industry?
“I grew up on a Rooibos Farm. After I left home, I worked on different farms producing a wide variety of agricultural products, but my love for Rooibos and the area in which I grew up brought me back home. Since I was a small boy, I dreamed about owning my own Rooibos Farm and 14 years ago my dream came true with the help of my previous employer who helped me to loan money to purchase my own Rooibos farm.”
Can you describe a typical day out in the field? How many hours would that be?
“During Harvesting season (January - April), I leave home at 05:00 in the morning to turn the Rooibos fermentation heaps on the drying yard. I then go to the fields and start harvesting the Rooibos. At 10:00 I return to the drying yard to open the fermentation heaps and spread the Rooibos thin and evenly to dry. I then continue harvesting till we break for lunch at 12:30. After lunch (14:00) I take the harvested Rooibos to the drying yard for further processing. After cutting and bruising the tea is put into fermentation heaps around 18:00. After that we collect the dried Rooibos from the drying yard. My day ends at around 19:30. A typical working day is around 13 hours during harvesting season.”
