Shows the stages of producing Rooibos tea from the planting of seeds to harvesting, the processing of the cuttings and finally the packing and distribution of this extraordinary product. Running time: 4min 15sec
Rooibos is fermented and dried in sunlight, on large concrete drying floors. These floors are protected from sand and dust blowing in by raised sides and, in many instances, wind screens. The Rooibos is then transported to the processing facility, where it undergoes a sifting process to remove any foreign material. The processed final product is then steam sterilised. A comprehensive quality control system is also in place, with several tests (including by independent laboratory), to ensure that the Rooibos you receive is of the highest quality.
