Our blends of RooiMateBos is a joint venture with Yerba Mate South Africa who sources this organic native tea from a small local production.
This product includes 100g each of our 2017 Monoshine Harvest from Family Gehm, Meta Mate Raw & wild Rooibos from South Africa.
The fermented (red) and virgin (green) rooibos was brought here by Jovi in December and stems from the region of Cederberg. Photos showing Jovi’s visit to the Rooibos Farms
In April 2017 we are visiting the region as well to forge a closer partnership between Yerba Mate South Africa and Meta Mate and venture on a joint endeavour in blending the 2 herbs.
Rooibos gained popularity through adoption by colonizers (like the missionaries and mate), providing them with an economical energizing infusion due to its composition and it remains a favourite for those wishing to have caffeine free mates. Savour the sweet caramel flavours of Rooibos combined with the freshness of our mate to create a mate with less caffeine and a complex flavour.
Not sure which one to try? Wishing to present a beloved Mate friend with a nice surpise? Purchase the Mate Rooibos and we will send you 2 x 100g of our Mate with 100g Rooibos for you to blend and enjoy.
