Tisane (CaffeineFree)   


Origin:  South Africa

This earthy South African herb that translates to "Red Bush" is from a community of small, family farms. Often mislabeled Red Tea despite having no relation to tea (Camellia Sinensis). Smooth & mellow taste in a deep red cup. Indigenous to the Western Cape region (southern tip) of South Africa.
