Collection: Yerba Mate & Rooibos

Rooibos aka Red Bush is a herbal tea and is not related to green or black tea. Low in tannins and Caffeine free. It is made using leaves from a shrub called Aspalathus linearis, usually grown in South Africa.

Traditional rooibos is created by fermenting the leaves, which turns them a red-brown colour. Green rooibos, which is not fermented, is also available. It tends to be more expensive and grassier in flavour than the traditional version of the tea, while also boasting more antioxidants.

Yerba mate is an herbal tea made from the leaves and stems of the Ilex paraguariensis plant. Full of antioxidants and high in caffeine. The leaves are typically dried over a fire, then steeped in hot water to make the tea.

Yerba mate is an antioxidant powerhouse that contains many beneficial plant compounds and nutrients. It is known for boosting mood, focus and energy.
