When you go to buy Rooibos, there are two varieties, one simply dried gently in the sun and the other that will be oxidized.
It is this version that we consume.
The harvest takes place during the first three months of the year, which correspond to the summer season, in South Africa.
Rooibos shrubs will be cut with a sickle about 30cm from the ground.
The leaves and stems are chopped, crushed by mechanical rollers and then placed in small heaps in an outdoor courtyard and moistened: the oxidation reaction then begins and gives the plant its characteristic taste and red color.
Then the leaves will be spread on the ground to allow them to dry gently in the sun.
After they are put on a sieve to remove the pieces of stem. After they will be steamed before being packaged.
