Our Rooibos Tea is simply the best tasting and highest quality you can buy. The product of a third generation farm in the Cedarberg Mountains of South Africa, this Rooibos tea is hand-harvested, sun-dried, and fermented in small batches. 

Rooibos is an herbal tea that is naturally caffeine-free, with no stimulating effect. It tastes incredibly smooth, rich, and naturally sweet with an earthy undertone sometimes described as nutty or woody. This tea contains numerous antioxidants and is loaded with minerals including iron, magnesium, calcium, manganese and zinc as well as the skin promoting alpha hydroxyl acid.

Gathering Place Organic Rooibos is absolutely delicious on its own, and brews to a dark rich colour, but can also be used in cooking and baking.

Organic Rooibos Tea Leaves Boil water to 212 °F and add 1 tbsp per mug of tea to your favourite tea infuser or tea pot. Steep this loose tea for 5-10 minutes and enjoy!

Welcome to Gathering Place Trading,

Where We Direct Source the Best Organic Rooibos Tea

Single-Origin, South African Rooibos Tea

Rooibos tea was the first product we ever imported. If you love stories of fate and serendipity, check out our origin story! For the last 20 years, we've partnered with the same multi-generational family farm in the Cedarberg Mountains of South Africa. The farmers, Frans and Gerda, are deeply invested in care of the land: they harvest by hand, ferment in small batches, and sun-dry their Rooibos. We are proud to partner with these amazing people and to offer you the best tasting and most ethically-sourced Rooibos on the planet!

Planet Over Profit

1% of every sale of Organic Rooibos Tea goes to grassroots projects we hand select in our farmer communites around the world

While some brands only "give back" from their profits (i.e. money earned after expenses and owners' incomes), we at Gathering Place donate one percent of all our sales to important, grassroots initiatives that directly improve the lives of the people who farm these spices, herbs, and tea.

Learn more about our farm partners and donation commitments on our about page.

Rooibos tea

I love your rooibos tea, but I am very disappointed you have gone to plastic packaging.

The most loved herbal tea!

Being very satisfied customer for almost 10 years.
Rooibos is indescribable amazing tea. Enjoying it every day switching from 'plain' rooibos to green rooibos to honeybush.
After discovering Gathering Place and their products we never ever made another tea from commercial tea-bags where they put the lowest possible quality tea dust (and who knows what else).
Buy in bulk (1kg), save $$ and enjoy it all year long.

Thank you so much for your great words about our Teas, Yuri!
We are incredibly proud to be able to offer such high quality teas to our customers and are so appreciative of the 20 year long relationship we have with our Rooibos Tea Farmers. Rooibos Tea is definitely a staple around here at the office!

I have been buying my tea through Gathering Place for many years now. Their tea is the only kind I drink. I just love it! My husband has even started drinking it and he’s not a tea drinker! I appreciate the outstanding service and reasonable prices. Recipes are a great touch too!
