We know that slow and natural growth at highest altitude develops our sweeter, bolder, richer-tasting tea. We follow sustainable, organic practices and don’t use herbicides, pesticides or irrigation. Our primary farm has been awarded the highest biodiversity rating for farming as close to nature as possible. These are the things that are important to us.
Unlike other rooibos, we make sure our tea is sourced from single estates and never blended. It is this integrity and rare quality that sets red espresso apart.
The world’s first rooibos tea espresso since 2005.
Owing to its unique patented cut and espresso method of preparation, red espresso has 10 x the antioxidants of traditionally-brewed rooibos and 5 x the antioxidants of green tea
red espresso is the world’s first rooibos tea espresso. It can be used to make a range of café-style drinks for people who are looking for a healthy alternative to coffee. It brews the richest, boldest, strongest rooibos tea.

Rooibos tea benefits include:* Being 100% caffeine free * Loaded with antioxidants (and as such is anti-inflammatory) * Aiding the digestive process * Ensuring a more restful sleep
Of course, these benefits are fantastic, but wouldn’t you want 10x these? That’s where red espresso steps in, as it a concentrated form of rooibos that is bursting with the above-mentioned benefits and so much more
As researched by the Antioxidant Research Unit at INFRUITEC, one 60ml shot of red espresso rooibos has the same amount of antioxidants as 1 cup of blueberries, 6 cups of beetroot juice or 20 cups of carrot juice. It also has 5 X more antioxidants than a cup of green tea and 10 X more antioxidants than traditionally brewed Rooibos tea (per ORAC measurements).
