Red tea, or rooibos, is produced from a bush known as the Aspalathus linearis only in South Africa. Red tea leaves are generally oxidised – a process which enhances the flavour and produces the distinctive red colour after which this tea is named. Unoxidised ‘green’ rooibos requires a more demanding production process, similar to that of green tea. The harvests can be classified by the needle percentage or leaf‑to‑stem content in the tea. Rooibos is 100% theine‑free, contains a high level of antioxidants and is very rich in mineral salts.
