Teeming with notes of tropical fruit and blossom, this rich and delicious herbal tisane blend makes an excellent aperitif or after-dinner drink. Alternatively, drink a cup in the morning as an alternative to black tea—naturally caffeine free, this blend of rooibos, hibiscus, and blossom is perfect on days that could use some calm and relaxation.
Organic African Nectar is made primarily from rooibos, the so-called 'red tea' or ‘red bush’ of South Africa. Rooibos only grows in the Cederberg Mountains of the Western Cape region; attempts to propagate it elsewhere have never been successful. This simple shrub's leaves have been harvested, oxidized, and enjoyed for centuries by the local people, but rooibos was not exported in volume until the late 20th century. It has since become a popular herbal tea ingredient due to its versatility and honey-sweet taste.
