Authentic Rooibos (pronounced roy-boss) or Herbal Red Tea comes only from the Cedarberg Mountains in the remote area of central South Africa. This herbal tea, made from the leaves of the Rooibos plant, has been enjoyed for countless generations by native South Africans. The plant is harvested in summer, fermented and then dried in the sun until it reaches a deep mahogany red color. Rich in antioxidants, and caffeine-free, Twinings African Rooibos Herbal Red Tea has a pleasantly sweet flavor. Great to drink with lunch or in the afternoon, this tea is best with a little milk or served plain.
