About Rooibos Tea and Where it is Grown
Our Certified USDA Organic, refreshing red tea is rich in antioxidants and is naturally caffeine-free. Steeped from rooibos leaves, this tea is a delicious and healthy option to stay hydrated. 

Grown in the Western Cape of South Africa, rooibos tea is packed with antioxidants and nutrients. The rooibos tea, (pronounced ROY-BOS), the word actually means “red bush” and it is what many refer to as “red tea.” It is not a tea in the standard definition, but rather a legume similar to peas, beans and lentils. Rooibos contains endless health benefits that South African families have revered for generations. Rooibos naturally contains no caffeine, and unlike black or green tea has very little tannins or bitter qualities giving it a subtle sweetness.

It is high in two powerful antioxidants: aspalathin and nothofagin. These powerhouses may help fight against heart disease, inflammation, high blood pressure and cholesterol. Its unique minerals include magnesium, calcium, manganese, zinc and iron that benefit the nervous and skeletal systems and may help with digestion, metabolism and circulation.

With all those powerful properties, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to be one of the first to offer the benefits of rooibos in a convenient ready-to-drink bottle. In true Rooibee Red Tea style, we added extra goodness and included a full-serving of vitamin C and certification of USDA Organic.

Since we first launched in 2009 at farmers markets in Louisville, Kentucky, Rooibos Red Tea has become a staple in healthy homes across the nation. We love helping others stay hydrated and healthy with our organic, low-sugar teas that you can grab on-the-go. We hope you’ll take advantage, enjoy the refreshing flavor and join the movement! #InspireWellbeing.

About the company

The Mrs. Crimble’s brand has been around longer than you might have realised having initially been launched in 1979 and sold direct to stores in the London area. More recently the company has become known for its range of cakes, biscuits, snacks and treats which are now deliciously Gluten Free. In the early days our brand was endorsed by the original TV chef Fanny Craddock and we operated a small fleet of vans and our two best selling lines were the plain and choc macaroons, and these two are still as popular today.

Mrs. Crimble’s was one of the first brands to be stocked on the Free From fixtures in the UK supermarkets. Before then our products had been found in specialist health shops and farm stores. Whilst today we still happily supply many of our original outlets the proliferation of Gluten Free products means you can find Mrs. Crimble’s in all sorts of places, and even outside the UK!

There is a small, yet dedicated team that keeps the wheels from falling off and we all try our best to come up with great tasting products which, oh by the way, we guarantee to be Gluten Free.

About the company

Belvoir Fruit Farms nestles deep in the English countryside in the idyllic Vale of Belvoir. We’ve been making cordials here for nearly 30 years, pressing fresh fruit and infusing flowers to mix with the famous Belvoir spring water.

Renowned for our elderflower drinks, we still use the same elderflower recipe developed by co-founder Mary Manners all those years ago. Originally, all the elderflowers were handpicked from bushes growing around Lord and Lady John Manners’ garden. The whole family helped to make the first batch of elderflower cordial, chopping the lemons and stirring the syrup. Lord John then popped the 88 cases of drinks into the back of his car and went round local farm shops, persuading the owners to buy a bottle here and there.

Today, demand is so high that Belvoir calls on the local community to help with the harvest, picking flowers from our own orchards and from hedgerows in the surrounding countryside.

goldenberries

Are Goldenberries the next Superfood?

Golden berries are from South America, and are also known as Agauaymanto berries or Incan berries. These dried berries have a slightly sweet/sour taste and are packed with nutrition. It has high content of vitamin B (bioflavinoids) which possess anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antiviral properties and a crucial energy generator critical to cellular metabolism. Golden berries are also rich in pectin, phosphorous, vitamins A, C, B1, B2, B6, and B12, and very rich in protein.

Boasting 166% more antioxidants than cranberries, Goldenberries contain twice as much fibre as prunes or dates, more potassium than four bananas (per 100g) and are a rich source of vitamin C, iron, magnesium and phosphorus.

The search for the breakout superfood of 2013 is on and dried goldenberries have tossed their name in the ring.  Packing so many benefits in such a tiny berry makes this fruit incredibly versatile.  A very easy way for manufacturers to introduce this product is as a snack on its own or mixed with other fruits and nuts.  We expect to see Goldenberries popping up in new products very soon.
