Single Origin

My Red Tea meticulously selects and procures Organic Rooibos from the elevated reaches of the Cederberg mountains. At higher altitudes, where rainfall is scarce and yields are lower, Rooibos thrives. These rugged conditions yield a more robust and flavorful concentration of the finest elements.

Hand picked

We're diligent in selecting suppliers who align with our values, sharing our deep commitment to our planet and all its inhabitants.

Caffeine free

Naturally sweet and completely caffeine-free, Rooibos is suitable for all ages. It offers a healthy alternative to other beverages, and children particularly enjoy its taste.

Sustainable packaging

Our teabags, crafted from unbleached cellulose (wood pulp), boast full biodegradability. Free from the compound epichlorohydrin, both in coating and as a standalone element, our filter paper ensures purity. Utilizing machine folding and pressing, our Stash tea bag filter paper eliminates the necessity for glue or thermoplastics in its construction.

Certified Organic

Our entire product line is certified organic, adhering strictly to federal standards. Organic production excludes the use of sewage sludge, bioengineering (GMOs), ionizing radiation, as well as the majority of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. Cultivated in soil free from prohibited substances, our approach emphasizes renewable resources and prioritizes soil and water conservation. By nurturing and preserving the environment, organic farmers ensure a sustainable legacy for generations to come.

No funny stuff

We keep our products free from any additives. What you get are only the finest, simplest, and most natural ingredients. Through our formulation process, we've discovered that many other products resort to preservatives and chemicals for cost and convenience, but we prioritize purity and quality above all else.

We love our bees

We hold a deep appreciation for our bees, who share a mutual fondness for Rooibos. As the natural fermentation unfolds, the vibrant hues and enticing aroma of Rooibos leaves draw the bees in. Symbolizing our commitment to sustainability and reverence for nature, the bee has become emblematic of our work ethos.

Uniquely South African

Originating from the picturesque Cederberg region in South Africa's Western Cape, our premium Rooibos tea flourishes in the majestic Cederberg mountains.

Farmer friendly

My Red Tea dedicates 10% of its profits to advancing education within our Rooibos farming communities, all while upholding fair trade principles. Each purchase contributes to bolstering local communities and fostering job opportunities.

More about Rooibos

"Rooibos has been an integral part of my diet since childhood, spanning generations of South Africans. Cherished by both young and old, Rooibos serves as a remedy for ailments ranging from stomachaches to diaper rash, colic, or simply a comforting elixir with honey during a nasty cold." - Kim, Founder of My Red Tea

Exclusive to the Cederberg region of South Africa, Rooibos (pronounced roy-bos) thrives both in the wild and as a cultivated crop. Derived from the leaves of the "red bush" plant, scientifically known as Aspalathus linearis, Rooibos belongs to the broom-like branch of the legume family, thriving in South Africa's fynbos region, one of the world's most botanically diverse areas.

The term Rooibos, originating from Afrikaans, translates to "red bush," symbolizing the transformation of the green, needle-shaped leaves into a vibrant red hue as they oxidize in the sun. Abundant in antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins, Rooibos is caffeine-free and boasts lower tannin levels compared to black and green teas.

Renowned throughout generations in South Africa, Rooibos offers a naturally sweet and nutty flavor profile, making it a beloved choice. With its high antioxidant content, lack of caffeine, and rich vitamin and mineral composition, Rooibos is an ideal beverage for the entire family, anytime and anywhere.
