Naturally caffeine free, low in tannins and 100% organic, Equal Exchange’s rooibos range uses only the highest quality rooibos leaf hand-picked by small-scale farmers. The subtly sweet and smoky tea that we know as rooibos comes from the leaves of the ‘red bush’ plant (Aspalathus linearis), a legume that only grows in the Cedarberg region of South Africa. The rugged sandstone mountains of the Cedarberg lie at the north of the Cape Floral Kingdom, one of the world’s richest natural habitats.

Naturally caffeine free, low in tannins and 100% organic, Equal Exchange’s rooibos range uses only the highest quality rooibos leaf hand-picked by small-scale farmers.

The vibrant red colour of rooibos develops during fermentation, post-harvest, brought about by natural enzymes in the plant.

Unlike lots of the rooibos tea on the shelves, we do not buy our tea from large South African estates, so you are helping to provide market access to the most marginalised farmers and sustaining the natural environment too.
Description

Details

Equal Exchange has been a force for change since our beginnings in 1979. We are a worker co-operative dedicated to the promotion of Fair Trade and organic production methods, ensuring a fair deal for farmers and the environment. The ethics (and politics) of food are not simple. Organic principles are sometimes at odds with the immediate needs of farmers whose livelihoods — and even survival — depend on their ability to sell crops on a competitive world market. The alternative trade movement is about creating a set of conditions in which producers of all kinds of products can earn a fair reward for their labour, in an environmentally sustainable, ecologically sensitive way. Organic production and Fair Trade do not distort global free markets, but add value to existing commodities, enabling suppliers and retailers to compete with the global mega-producers on their own terms.
