I am not a tea drinker.....BUT this is the Best Tea I have ever had, ever! It does not need sugar or milk but I'm sure you could add these items if you preferred. I will definitely be getting more of this tea. Please, do not ever change this tea. It is perfect as it is now. Remember I am not a tea drinker but this tea has made me one. Thank you for Rooibos tea!
I love this tea. I could have purchased a cheaper version but I like that this tea is non-gmo and USDA certified organic. Also 100% farmer friendly with 10% of the profits going back to support education in their farming communities. I will be ordering more soon. I add a little honey but you really don't need to. Great taste and healthy.
I work in the Emergency Department and try to keep my immune system up. I add a tea bag of this Rooibos tea to my coffee as it brews everyday. Even before this whole covid bs I would drink this tea if I had a sore throat or felt a cold coming on and the symptoms would subside. I'm not saying this is a medical cure, just that I feel like it helps my immune system.
New to Rooibos tea and love these tea bags. Like that the bags come in four sealed inner packages to keep the teabags fresh longer. We drink this tea everyday so we do not need each teabag sealed individually. Taste is excellent. Even months after I first posted this review and after trying quite a few different brands this brand is my favorite.
Truly Authentic I bought this tea for some of my South African friends who are here in the USA. I waited until I heard what they each thought of if before I sent in the review. One said it reminded her of home and that although she had found some other Rooibos teas none were as good as this one, another friend said it was like Christmas to receive them, the other said it was really, really good (and that I should try it with honey but no milk). They all praised it, truly enjoyed it, and appreciated knowing it was available in the USA. I can't think of a better way to write a review than by telling you what South African people said about it. I also really enjoyed my first cup with a touch of honey!
Great product, environmentally friendly with minimal packaging Reviewed in the United States on I like the minimal packaging. Really good strong flavour!
One of my best teas ever! Love the taste and the health benefits.
Boatman Great Tasting Tea! Very tasty and robust tea. I don't know about the health benefits but, I imagine that it does have them. Did a lot of reading about this tea before purchasing it. I just know that I like the mellow taste and would like to believe that there are many salubrious benefits. I will be ordering this tea for many years.
My Red Tea is a wonderful experience. My Red Tea is a wonderful experience.....I became intrigued with it after reading a book....The Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency....every little bit when they took a break it was with a steaming cup of bush tea, I was so curious that I tracked it down and LOVE IT....
I've tried many Rooibos brand teas and this Rooibos is the best! Taste is subjective but to me this tea has a full bodied, deep, smooth taste (as opposed to some teas that are just blah generic tasting). Non bleached bags. Fair trade. Great tea. Recommend.
This tea is excellent. It's tasty when drinking it alone. It makes a refreshing iced or hot tea. I find this particular brand especially worthwhile. It is organic, non-GMO, and farmer friendly, all things I like to support. If you want a refreshing, flavorful red tea, buy this brand.
I started having a cup of hot tea after my morning workout, as it's said to have many health benefits, especially green tea and rooibos tea. However, green tea doesn't always sit well with me first thing in the morning so I search for a quality rooibos tea that would deliver the same if not better benefits. My Red Tea is not only much better tasting but does not upset my stomach or leave a terrible aftertaste. I can definitely tell it is a high quality tea. Very fresh. Will certainly purchase again.
I lived in South Africa for several years during the 90s and grew to love rooibos tea while I was there. Here, in the United States, I usually can only find rooibos tea that has been flavored with various fruits when I look in the stores. I much prefer the unflavored, pure variety. "My Red Tea" is marvelous and it's also organic. I usually have a cup every night at bed time.

Excellent Tea! This tea is the best that I have tasted in a long time. Typically tea is weak with no flavor. This tea has a nice bold flavor without any bitterness. It is good straight, with sugar, or with milk. Love it!
I drink a lot of tea. I don't drink pop, coffee, or sugary drinks. I wasn't fond of the caffeine in other teas because if I went the weekend without drinking the tea I would get a slight headach. nothing bad but enough to notice so I started to look around at other options. Then when I became pregnant I was on the hunt. I found this tea and I LOVE it. Even a year after my son was born this is still my drink of choice.
My Red Tea is selective and sources Organic Rooibos from high in the Cederberg mountains. The higher the altitude, the less the rain, the lower the yield, the better the Rooibos. More rugged conditions translate into richer and more dense concentration of the good stuff and flavor.
We’re very careful to pick suppliers who support our values and care just as much about our world and its inhabitants as we do.
Our teabags are unbleached and made from cellulose (wood pulp) means that our teabags are biodegradable. The filter paper is not coated with the compound epichlorohydrin, and does not contain any free epichlorohydrin. Stash tea bag filter paper is machine folded and pressed, therefore no glue is needed or used and thermoplastics are not used.
Naturally sweet and 100% caffeine free, Rooibos is perfect for any age. A healthy alternative to other beverages and kids really love it.
All our products are certified organic and produced according to federal standards. The use of sewage sludge, bioengineering (GMOs), ionizing radiation, and most synthetic pesticides and fertilizers is prohibited from organic production. Grown on soil free of prohibited substances. Focused on the use of renewable resources and conservation of soil and water, organic farmers enhance and sustain the environment for future generations.
No Funny Stuff
We don’t include any funny stuff in our products. Just the best, simple and natural ingredients. In formulating our products we learned how so many other products include preservatives and other chemicals because it is cheaper and easier.
More about our Rooibos Tea
“Rooibos has been a staple part of my diet from infancy and for generations of South Africans. Loved by children and adults alike, Rooibos is used as a cure-all for everything from stomach ache to baby bum cream, to colic, or a soothing drink with honey for a bad cold.“ Kim, Founder My Red Tea
Unique to the Cederberg region of South Africa, Rooibos (pronounced roy-bos) thrives in the wild and as a cultivated crop. Rooibos is made from the leaves of the “red bush” plant called Aspalathus liners.
Actually, Rooibos is not a tea at all, but rather a part of the broom-like member of the legume family of plants growing in South Africa’s fynbos region, one of the richest botanical areas in the world. The word, Rooibos, translates from the Afrikaans language as “red bush,” which refers to the way that the green, needle-shaped leaves turn red when they fall off the bush and oxidize in the sun.
Rooibos is very high in anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins. It does not contain caffeine and has low tannin levels compared to black and green tea.
Known to generations of South Africans, Rooibos is a naturally sweet and nutty flavor, is high in antioxidants, caffeine-free and bursting with vitamins and minerals. An excellent anytime, anywhere drink for the whole family.
We love our bees
We love our bees and they love Rooibos flowers that offer rich rewards of nectar. During the natural fermentation process, the bees are attracted to the rooibos leaves that are rich in colour and aroma. The bee has become a symbol of our work ethics based on sustainability and respect of nature.
Uniquely South African
Indigenous to the beautiful Cederberg region of the Western Cape in South Africa, our superior quality Rooibos tea is grown at the foot of the magestic Cederberg mountains.
10% of the profits of My Red Tea are committed to support education in our Rooibos farming communities, and we respect fair trade principles. Every sale helps support local communities and create jobs.
