what makes it so special?

  1. We work directly with our farmers. We help our farmers to grow the best tea and offer them premium price consistency, regardless of supply or market trends.
  2. Our tea is grown naturally on the highest plateaus of the Cederberg Mountains. We know that slow and natural growth at high altitude develops sweeter, bolder, richer-tasting tea. All of our tea is mountain farmed in its natural habitat with no irrigation.
  3. Our main farm has been awarded the highest biodiversity rating for farming as close to nature as possible. We follow sustainable, organic practices and use no herbicides, pesticides or irrigation. These are the things that matter to us.
  4. All our tea is single origin. Unlike other Rooibos producers, we make sure our tea is sourced from single estates and never blended. It is this integrity and rare quality that sets red espresso® Rooibos apart.
  5. Our tea is made on coffee appliances. We’ve put countless hours into developing a grind that means our patented Rooibos tea works perfectly in commercial espresso machines, AeroPress, French Press, Nespresso machines and stovetop espresso makers.
  6. Our tea is expertly ground for perfection. Our Rooibos tea is expertly ground under patent by our team of Rooibos espresso artisans. Dedicated to their craft, they have received extensive training in the science behind our Rooibos tea espresso and understand the complexity of our grind.
  7. Our tea has a sweeter, bolder, richer taste and a thick golden crema. Our patented grind and espresso method of preparation means we extract a stronger, richer Rooibos taste complete with a golden crema.
  8. Our tea has 10 times more antioxidants than regular Rooibos tea. Thanks to its unique patented grind and espresso method of preparation, 1 x 60ml shot of red espresso® has 10 times more antioxidants than regular rooibos tea and 5 times more than green tea.
  9. Our tea has won 8 international awards. Since 2005, red espresso® is honoured to have received eight global awards for product innovation, product excellence and marketing excellence.
  10. Our tea makes South Africa’s much-loved red cappuccino®and many more deliciously healthy café-style drinks.
