Caffeine-free rooibos, aka red bush, grows near the South African town of Clanwilliam. In mid-January to April, the tender, topmost leaves are carefully hand-picked and processed for a sweet, creamy, tea-like flavor.

This tea was very pure and fragrant and brewed up deliciously. I added just a touch of honey to make it even better.

Lovely Tea

I have been looking for a new Tea since Teavana closed down with no luck until Smith’s Tea. Love everything I’ve tried thus far.

Best quality I could find

Smith's rooibos is the highest quality I have been able to find. Flavourful, consisting of nice thin, long needles, not stem pieces. Thumbs up.

Wonderful for the digestion.

Wonderful for the digestion.


South African rooibos (red bush) from the Western Cape region.

A subtle toast to the 44th president.


For best flavor, bring spring or freshly drawn filtered water to a boil (212 degrees). Steep five minutes. Gently gather your thoughts.

South African Botanical

Rooibos, also known as red bush, is perhaps the most tea-like and naturally caffeine-free beverage in the world. During the 20th Century, red bush went from being a mostly indigenous drink of South Africa to a global commodity and a cash crop for the Clanwilliam district. Rooibos is also known to be high in antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins. Similar to tea, rooibos generally undergoes an oxidation process after the leaves are cut, when it develops a uniquely sweet and creamy flavor, without the astringency of black tea. It is a common alternative to coffee or tea because it also stands up well to milk and sugar and can be served in various forms quite easily (hot, iced, lattes, etc.). Rooibos can also be steamed after being picked to stop the oxidation process, which will keep it as green rooibos, a more vegetal and floral flavor than the more common red rooibos.


Clanwilliam is a small farming town of 7,000 nestled between the Cederburg Mountains and the Olifants River in Western Cape, South Africa and is ground zero for the world's supply of Rooibos and lead vocalists for Skid Row. Rooibos is harvested from January through April.
