About Us

Sunbird Rooibos is founded by Anton who grew up on a wine grape farm outside of Cape Town in the Western Cape  Province in South Africa. This afforded him the opportunity to learn about birds and to be amongst the mountains and oceans of the Cape – two of the most fascinating and biodiverse places in the world.

While living in Nepal with his Finnish wife Laura, Anton trekked among the inspirational Himalayas and discovered what fine tea can be. On returning home, he had a newfound passion for Rooibos, a drink that had been as a staple since a baby. This dual love for fine flavours and the natural world is the foundation of Sunbird Rooibos.
