Description

This rare and stunning rooibos comes from a small, isolated town called Wupperthal in Cedeberg province South Africa. This is the only area in the world where rooibos grows wild, and in South Africa, over 98% of the rooibos crop is cultivated on large (white run) plantations. Producing this tea is what supports the local community in Wupperthal - few other crops can be grown on the land due to poor soil and extreme weather conditions. The Wupperthal Original Rooibos Co-op was founded in 1990 to better regulate the industry and market prices. It has had a fantastic effect on the community who are going from strength to strength. The flavour of the wild rooibos is much richer and maltier than regular rooibos. It also has beautiful, deep dried fruit flavours.

Also available in pyramid tea bags.

  • Organic Wld Rooibos

    by Unknown on 18th of November

    Bought 250 gms last year and it did keep very well. Great taste and flavour with 95 to 96 degrees water temp. Best Rooibos loose leaf tea I have drunk. This brand is highly recommended above all others. Worth a try or purchase!

  • delicious decaf option

    by Patricia on 22nd of February

    I can drink rooibos teabg tea if pushed although it wouldn't be my drink of choice but this is quite delicious. It's sweet and aromatic and quite tasty. I still love my green and oolong teas but this is a great tea to have when I've drunk enough of the others and need something decaf. Also, lovely in the evening after a meal. I'd recommend and prefer this over other "herbal"options. It's much more satisfying.

  • Better than any teabag

    by Tash on 19th of July

    Rooibos is my herbal tea of choice, and having drunk many a shop bought teabag, I didn't think loose leaf would make that much difference to rooiboos. How wrong I was! After reading other reviews I ordered two bagfuls without even trying it and I'm pleased to say it lived up to my expectations. Only problem is now I can't go back to teabags; even the most expensive you can buy in the shops doesn't come close to the flavour and colour of this.
