We like to imagine that Tante Grey is the Earl’s South African auntie. This premium Good Hope Rooibos hails from the Cedarburg region, where South African Rooibos was born over a century ago. It was the locals of the area who first discovered that the fine needle like leaves of the wild “Aspalathus Linearis” plant (rooi-bos or “red bush” in Afrikaans) made a tasty aromatic tea. It was they who first harvested the plants, chopped them with axes and bruised them with hammers leaving them to ferment before drying in the sun. Rooibos is an herb, and as such, has no caffeine, making it a perfect cup for bedtime, or for anyone who’s cutting back on caffeine. Tante Grey is infused with bergamot (like her famous aristocrat nephew) and a touch of vanilla, and adorned with safflower blossoms for a cup that is rich and aromatic.
