Green Rooibos

Green Rooibos Tea comes from the Aspalathus Linearis shrub, only found in the Cederberg Mountain region of South Africa’s Western Cape. The short needle-like leaves are harvested by hand in the South African summer (December to February). Immediately after harvesting the freshly cut leaves are heat sterilized and this halts the oxidation process – as the leaves dry they retain their green coloration. The oxidation does more than merely change the color of the leaves – it subtly alters the flavor as well to bring us a delicate, herbal flavor and steeps into a light orange-yellow cup. Interesting fact: When the Rooibos leaves are left to oxidize and ferment, they will gradually turn from green to the reddish amber color that is so characteristic of Original Rooibos Tea, otherwise known as Red Bush Tea.
