MY RED TEA Organic Rooibos Tea is a passion for health, for fairness and for the environment.
I’m a mom of two boys and live in Larkspur, CA, but still call South Africa my home. I grew up (literally) with Rooibos Tea: a naturally caffeine free beverage that has been used by generations of South Africans for anything from a delicious anytime drink, to a soothing beverage to calm Baby’s colic, to putting in the bath for dry & flaky skin. You name it, Rooibos is the cure.
As I’m sure you’ve gathered, I’m a massive Rooibos fan, not just because I grew up with it and it reminds me of home, but also because of the incredible health benefits it provides to the whole family – from baby to granny. Inside and out.
Organic, sustainable, ethically farmed products and practices that truly deliver on health and wellness is what MY RED TEA is all about.
A few talking points:
MY RED TEA is meaningful. I created MY RED TEA to incorporate you, it’s your red tea, your health and your well being. It also belongs to the farmers and farm workers, its their red tea too and they’re proud of it. 10% of our profits support education in our Rooibos farming communities. We made our first donation to a school for farmworkers in September 2016. In March 2017, we partnered with an after school dance troupe for teenagers in the Clan William area of the Western Cape.
No funny stuff! All our products color and cruelty-free. We NEVER test on animals. We are free of preservatives, colorants or any other artificial ingredients, just 100% Organic and natural.
It’s good for all of us: Studies have shown that Rooibos has some pretty amazing properties. Full of vitamins and minerals, it is a naturally caffeine free, gluten free product with many benefits.
It’s good for the environment: No irrigation is used for Rooibos which often grows in drought like conditions, saving precious water resources. Rooibos is still harvested by hand in much the same way as it has been for hundreds of years.
Remember that each time you use MY RED TEA Organic products, your body thanks you, the community thanks you and the planet thanks you.

Suppliers who share our beliefs:
We’re very careful to pick suppliers who support our values and care just as much about our world and its inhabitants as we do.
We strive to use packaging and processes that have the least impact on the environment. We selected a packaging supplier who are committed to providing packaging solutions that are environmentally responsible. In 2015, our packaging supplier recycled 399 tons of material.
MY RED TEA is selective and sources Organic Rooibos from high in the Cederberg mountains.The higher the altitude, the less the rain, the lower the yield, the better the Rooibos. More rugged conditions translate into richer and more dense concentration of the good stuff and flavor.
