A 75g box of Whole Leaf Loose Rooibos Tea.
The rooibos plant is endemic to a small part of the Western Cape province of South Africa. This woody and nutty South African wonder herb offers a great combination of flavour and vitality. Also known as Red Bush or Rooibosch, this Rooibos tea is enjoyed as an alternative to black tea. You can drink it as it comes or add milk and sugar or even a slice of lemon and honey.
Rooibos leaves have a high concentration of vitamin C, are caffeine free and are naturally high in antioxidants, offering endless health benefits include helping the symptoms of headaches, insomnia, asthma, eczema, bone weakness, hypertension, allergies, and premature ageing. Win win!
Fun fact: The leaves are green but turn red as part of the oxidation process which also enhances its nutty, smoky flavour.
Our tips to make the perfect cup of Rooibos tea
Step 1: Use one teaspoon of Loose Leaf Tea per cup (or use the Simplicitea Loose Leaf Tea Infuser to brew a perfect cup each time).
Step 2: Use freshly drawn boiled water. Like black tea, Rooibos leaves can take the full heat!
Step 3: Avoid oversteeping, we recommend 90 seconds. Taste it and then decide if you’d like to steep a little longer.
Step 4: Add milk, sugar, lemon, honey or simply enjoy as it is

Guilt free sipping
We’re a nation of tea monsters consuming over 165 million cuppas every year and growing. To keep up with the worlds growing love affair with tea in a socially just and environmentally sustainably way, the Ethical Tea Partnership was formed. Working with individual tea estates, We Are Tea help producers & smallholder farmers raise their performance against international social & environmental standards to produce ethical tea, as well as address key issues holding back tea sustainability in the global tea producing regions through training and support.
We Are Tea are committed to helping the environment by removing pesky plastic from their packaging completely by the end of this year, along with having 100% biodegradable and compostable teabags and takeaway cups in all their stores.
Keep away from moisture (until it lands in your cup!) We recommend you store your tea in an opaque, airtight container. It might look pretty in glass, but the light damages the tea leaves and subsequent taste. Nooo!
Please store away from direct sunlight, in a cool, dry place. Consume within 2 years from purchase for optimum freshness.
