PREMIUM TERROIR ROOIBOS TEA
Sunbird Rooibos is the first to produce a range of premium single-origin, organically grown Rooibos. Our tea represents our suppliers' unique growing conditions, known as terroir, without blending or adding flavourings - just pure Rooibos.
FROM A SINGLE ORIGIN
Rooibos is only grown in the Cederberg mountains and nowhere else on Earth. No other crop only grows in its homeland, but still enjoys worldwide fame.
Within the Cederberg mountains, many organic farmers make their living of Rooibos tea. To preserve the unique flavours stemming from individual farms, we keep individual sources separate to share the individual Rooibos nuances with you.
SUPPORTING LOCAL ORGANIC FARMERS
As our supplying farmers work closely with the land, we work closely with them. They are the custodians of the Cederberg, part of the Cape Fynbos Biome biodiversity hotspot. Where possible, we source wild grown Rooibos - sustainably harvested and part of the completely natural system - to minimise any impact on this unique environment.
Currently all six of our suppliers are organic. Five of them are certified organic and one is practising organic farming methods (Hidden Valley). All our teas are individually and independently tested for any pesticide or fertilizer residues.
