Health in a Cup
Farm Welbedacht is where the unique Biedouw Valley Rooibos Tea comes from and the farm lies on the North Eastern side of the Cedarberg mountains overlooking the Biedouw Valley. The small family run business was formed in 1997 to produce estate Rooibos Tea and the Van der Merwe family is involved in the production, marketing and distributing of this great product. The Rooibos Tea is cultivated on the plateau of the surrounding Cederberg mountains which overlooks the Biedouw Valley, world famous for its breath-taking wildflowers in winter.
Biedouw Valley Rooibos Tea is so unique because it is grown in its original habitat with perfect sandstone soil and unpolluted air. It also grows at an ideal altitude of 900 - 1,000m above sea level. A combination of knowledge, skill, and passion for the product ensures only the finest tea in every bag. This tea is a unique Cederberg product and contains no caffeine or other additives, no colourants, or preservatives and has a high Vitamin C content.
Rooibos tea is also well-known to be rich in antioxidants, specifically an enzyme which operates like Super Oxide Dismutase (S.O.D) which attacks free radicals, reducing their negative consequences.
