ROOIBOS (Aspalanthus Linearis)

ROOIBOSLIEF Rooibos Tea, a Product of Origin

Rooiboslief specializes in providing customers with high-quality Rooibos tea, grown exclusively in the Citrusdal Valley of the Western Cape in South Africa. The Rooibos plant (Aspalathus Linearis) can only be grown in this unique area, making Rooibos a product of origin with full traceability back to each crop and batch.

Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)

In May 2021, Rooibos was granted Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) status by the European Union (EU), becoming the first food in Africa to receive this recognition. This means that the origin of the Rooibos plant is protected, and the term “Rooibos” can only be used for tea that originates from the 16 regions within the Western and Northern Cape of South Africa.

All Rooiboslief’s Rooibos tea is grown on their family farm in this specific region, ensuring that customers receive a genuine and authentic product that is true to its origin.
