Rooibee Red-Tea, you may notice it by its brightly colored labels and more importantly, its reddish tint. Each flavor has its own color represented by a graphic shape inspired by the petals of the Rooibos (pronounced roy-boss) tea bush bud. Its flavor holds up to its lively appearance, known for its cool, sweet, refreshing flavors, the Rooibos tea packs flavor and contains antioxidant properties 50% more potent than those of green tea.
The December issue of Garden & Gun Magazine named Rooibee Red Tea one of the 2010 Made in the South Award Winners recognizing Southern artisans, craftsmen, and entrepreneurs. According to the magazine’s editor, Sid Evans, “…the awards are about more than just well-made stuff. They’re about people who are making things that have character, integrity, and a great story behind them. They’re about a tradition of craftsmanship that goes back for generations, and a sense of style that can only be described as Southern. After combing through nearly three hundred entries, we were overwhelmed by the creative endeavors that have popped up all over the South.”
