"We sell the "Miracle" drink - Natural Rooibos, in its purest form straight from the farm"

Rooibos Loose leaf and Teabags

We are a family-owned business in South Africa, where the rooibos plant grows naturally.

Rooibos come cut in different lengths: shortcut or longcut. The shortcut is most commonly used in making tea and for teabags.

But its commitment to quality sets Kookfontein Online Tea Store & Wholesalers apart from other tea shops.

All of the Rooibos sold at Kookfontein Online Tea Store & Wholesaler are harvested by hand and dried in the sun, which ensures that they retains all of their natural flavour and health benefits.

The store also works directly from the farm; we keep the overhead cost as low as possible Our current price is: R72.50p/kg.

In addition to their loose-leaf, Kookfontein Online Tea Store & Wholesalers also offers tea bags for those who prefer the convenience of pre-measured portions.

The tea bags are made from biodegradable materials, making them eco-friendly.

Kookfontein Natural Rooibos Flower

Rooibos or Rooi tea, Aspalathus linearis, is a shrub belonging to the Leguminosae family. It is a leguminous shrub with needle-like leaves native to the mountain slopes of the Western Cape Province,  where it has been used for centuries, but its use is rapidly spreading to Europe and Asia as well.

Rooibos is commonly prepared in the same manner as black tea, usually without or with a little milk and/or sugar or honey. Other methods include a slice of lemon and using honey instead of sugar to sweeten it. It is also served as espresso, lattes, cappuccinos or iced tea.

As a fresh leaf, rooibos contains a high content of ascorbic acid (vit C), which is lost when made into tea.

Rooibos does not contain caffeine and has low tannin levels compared to black tea or green tea. Rooibos contains polyphenols, including flavanols, flavones, flavanones, dihydrochalcones, aspalathin and nothofagin.

The processed leaves and stems contain benzoic and cinnamic acids.
