rooibos earl grey
A classic blend with a twist, using South African Rooibos. Zesty fresh citrus aroma, slightly dry, with a rounded and balanced orange rind flavor. The pleasantly smooth texture from the Rooibos (not as dry and brisk as traditional Earl Grey made from black tea) lingers with citrus sweetness. Naturally caffeine-free.

Herbal Tea | No caffeine | Steep at 212° for 5 minutes.

Ingredients & Lore

blended with rooibos tea, orange, blue cornflowers & natural bergamot flavor

We import rooibos directly from one farmer in Clanwilliam, South Africa who plants, harvests, and processes with care. The processing, which includes sorting and spreading the leaves for oxidation by hand, makes our rooibos leaves as pretty as they are delicious. No wonder the earliest Dutch settlers embraced rooibos as an alternative to the expensive black tea! We add just the right bergamot flavoring and orange to make this a stand-out alternative to the classic Earl Grey tea. With or without a slice of lemon, you’ll enjoy the natural sweetness of organic rooibos with a crisp, brisk citrusy edge.

farmer
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.
