Go on a taste journey and #SipSouthAfrica with Carmién Tea Citrusdal
Carmién Tea Citrusdal has a story that started in 1998 in an old farm shop on the historic Brakfontein Estate near the small town of Citrusdal. Located on the foothills of the Western Cape’s splendid Cederberg Mountains, the farm falls within the Greater Cederberg Biodiversity Corridor.
The narrow 60 000 hectare belt along the West Coast of South Africa is the only place in the world where Rooibos tea can be grown. This area is also one of the world’s six Plant Kingdoms. The typical Mediterranean climate, ideal temperatures, rainfall and sunshine, offers the natural terroir needed for Rooibos to be cultivated in harmony with nature. The sandy slopes and undulating valleys of the rugged Cederberg Mountain Range provide the perfect habitat for Rooibos.
Carmien Tea is at the forefront of producing the indigenous tea plant: rooibos, which is cultivated here in South Africa and in particular the Cape West Coast.

Carmién Tea offers a wide variety of Rooibos tea, including their unique green teas, chai, loose leaf, mamma and baby range and delicious array of flavoured teas.
