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.

Healthy and delicious

I like everything I’ve had from Smith Tea so far and this is no exception. I had to give up caffeinated tea based on my gastroenterologist’s order so this Rooibos tea is perfect. It tastes superb with a splash of vanilla oat milk creamer mixed in. I will be back for more!

Full flavored

This rooibos tea is just what I like. Of all the herbal teas I think it has the best full bodied taste. And no caffeine! I started drinking “bush tea” after I read the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series of books set in Botswana. In those stories the tea time breaks were always with rooibos tea. So, I decided to try it myself. The Smith blend is my favorite.

Rooibos

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

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.
