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.

Great product

I can't drink black, white, green, or decaf tea because of stomach problems. Rooibos is the one that gives me no problems. Buying it in bulk is so much more economical than buying teabags. Better taste too.

Recently we bought another 2 lb from starwest, as we have done in several preceding years. Every time the tea arrived in excellent condition and in a timely fashion. We will continue doing just that. A fine product!

Best Tea I've ever had

This type of tea was recommended to us due to its antioxidant properties and my husband had liked it when he tried it at a friend's house. This was our first time ordering from this company too. Had a good experience ordering and receiving the product. I steep some cassia chucks with cloves. When the water comes to a boil then I turn off the heat I wait two minutes and put in the tea and let it steep for a little bit. People that usually like milk and or sweetener are able to drink this tea as is and it is great. I have never been a tea drinker but now I am not drinking coffee any longer and drinking this tea. I like that it is organic. I will be buying this tea again from this company.

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: mimi on March 21, 2014
We test for heavy metals in our lab.
Answer by: Starwest Staff on March 21, 2014
How much tea should be used to make one cup? I have a device that makes 1 cup of tea..drips right into the cup!
Thanks, Judy B
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.
