Free of caffeine but high in character, this is a wonderful tea for anytime sipping. It’s organic rooibos base makes it a nourishing loose-leaf tea with countless benefits for health & the added kick of an ice-cream cone experience. Vanilla is the queen of all spices, & this premium tea holds the proof.

Rooibos is especially high in two polyphenols, including one that is only found in rooibos called Aspalathin. It was also recently identified as a source of superoxide dismutase, a very powerful antioxidant.

Our authentic Fair Trade & organic principles are still uncommon in the tea industry. We believe in trade that strengthens the autonomy of small farmer organizations, promotes among farmers a sense ownership & control over one’s business, encourages entrepreneurial attitudes & a risk-taking culture, strengthens & builds community & encourages debate & participatory decision making. We believe that “Fair Trade” must mean “small farmer” & our relationships reflect that.

Each of our producer partners is unique, with a storied history of ambition, struggle & success over the years. They have worked to set themselves apart in a historically oppressive industry.

This rooibos, otherwise known as red tea, is grown the Wupperthal Original Rooibos Co-operative in the Cederburg Region of South Africa, a democratically organized group of farmers who have been growing rooibos for generations. Pushed off their land in the 1800s, they have endured the apartheid era & struggled to reclaim their livelihoods & thrive on the fringes of fertile land.

Now they grow their tea in the rocky terrain of the Cederburg Mountains, which presents numerous challenges – though the slow growth of their rooibos produces a higher quality tea. Today, 98% of the world's rooibos is grown on plantations, making the Wupperthal Co-operative a unique example of alternative tea production.
