Rooibos Tea (Asplathus linearis)

Latin Name: Asplathus linearis
Common Names: Rooibos Tea

Starwest Botanicals is pleased to offer a cut and sifted form of our organic Rooibos Tea. This is an herbal tea made from the Asplanthus linearis plant, which is part of the legume plant family. Our Asplanthus linearis, which is the Latin name for the plant from which Rooibos Tea is derived, comes to us from a supplier in South Africa, where this drink has been popular for years.

The tea has a red tint to it when dry, and because of this it is sometimes known as red tea, redbush tea, or South African red tea. The leaves turn red when they are oxidized, which is part of the process that goes into making this delicious tea. Oxidation also helps to bring out the leaves' distinctive flavor. Rooibos Tea is often served black, because it is naturally sweet tasting, although sugar and cream can be added. It is a caffeine-free beverage that is also high in antioxidants.

Rooibos Tea is one of many fine teas that Starwest Botanicals offers, along with bulk herbs and spices. We take great care to ensure that every herb and tea you get from us meets with strict quality assurance standards, including tests for color, aroma, flavor and appearance. Our herbs and teas will stay fresh for one to two years if they are stored in airtight containers in a cool, dark and dry place.

Ingredients: Organic Rooibos tea (Aspalathus linearis), organic cinnamon, organic ginger, organic cardamom, organic cloves and organic stevia.

Questions & Answers for Rooibos Tea

I have a question.
I heard that a heavy metal and mercury are contained in the soil of South Africa.
Is the inspection of those content conducted?

Question by: Judy on April 19, 2014
Like with any tea, you should adjust to your own taste, but a good starting point is probably around one tablespoon per cup.
