About Organic Cape Rooibos T-Bags
Dragonfly Organic Cape Rooibos Tea is grown without the use of chemicals and is naturally caffeine-free. Better still, it's high in antioxidants and flavonoids and rich in minerals, particularly iron, calcium and zinc. Its soothing, gentle taste has none of the bitterness of conventional teas. Its clean, aromatic flavour makes it an ideal drink at any time of the day. The local khoi-khoi people in the Cape Cedarberg region of South Africa probably knew Rooibos tea for centuries before Europeans discovered and appreciated its unique taste and amazing properties. In 1904, Benjamin Ginsberg, a forebear of the family behind Dragonfly Teas, became a pioneer trader of the tea. His son Henry Charles Ginsberg later turned it into a huge success and the nationally consumed drink of South Africa. Today Rooibos tea is enjoyed around the world. It is still harvested and cured by hand - simply because this is the best way to make the most of the tea's unique taste. The curing process takes place in the open air, requiring great skill to know when the cure is at its peak. One sign is that it begins to give off a delicious sweet aroma that attracts hundreds of wild bees. The unique Mediterranean microclimate of the area and the purity of the air all contribute to its unique character.
