Organic African Sunset

(35 reviews) Write a Review


We call this organic tea “African Sunset” because rooibos is grown in South Africa, where it's cherished for its woody-sweet, earthy flavor. We add a touch of lemongrass to brighten up this tea on your palate. Naturally caffeine free, the Rooibos plant is a member of the legume family. It has little needle-like branches and pretty yellow flowers.

Organic rooibos, lemongrass*, lemon peel*, verbena*, orange peel*, natural flavoring, marigold flowers*, cornflower petals (*Organic)

Package Type:
Our organic rooibos (say “ROY-bos”), also known as Red Tea or more literally "red bush", brews up bright and earthy with just a hint of lemongrass for a balanced, rich cup.
Origin: South Africa
Try adding milk and sugar to taste, or steam milk for a red tea latte!
This tea might be just the ticket for a wicked hangover…not that we are speaking from experience.
This tea is super-hydrating, so brew a big batch and then chill for total refreshment.

          Average tea

          Posted by Claudia on May 2nd 2019

          I love rooibos and I thought I would find another awesome tea with the description. Don't get me wrong, the tea is nice but nothing out of the ordinary and rooibos flavor still not strong enough for me.

          Where has this been all of my life?

          Posted by Jessica on Mar 9th 2018

          I purchased a sampler pack a few months ago and have slowly been trying all of the Two Leaves blends.

          Today I got to this. Holy cow, where has this been all of my life? This is a sweet and flavorful blend unlike anything I've had before. Plus, it's a beautiful color and smells amazing!

          Great Tea

          Posted by Joanne on Apr 12th 2017

          I have just about finished my first order of this tea. I enjoy the flavor and the fact that it has a naturally sweet taste. I have not found a reason to add any sweetener to it and enjoy it "black"

          I initially ordered a large variety of teas for our wellness center, but this one has fast become the favorite of my husband and myself! Back to order more of this one!

          The perfect tea

          Posted by Kana on Mar 22nd 2017

          Floral, faintly sweet, rich and fresh. It's an herbal tea, but substantial like a black tea. I use the same tea bag for a few cups and it doesn't lose its fragrance. I love this tea.

          my new fave

          Posted by Rebecca on Jan 31st 2017

          I bought the Herbal Tea Sampler and this flavor is already gone. I am back to order more and thought I'd write a review. The flavors are distinct and strong, just like I love my tea.

          FABULOUS anytime tea!

          Posted by Tammy on Apr 29th 2016

          Absolutely LOVE this tea! I'm a long time huge Earl Gray fan and really like your organic Earl Grey, but I find myself reaching for this organic African Sunset anytime of day or night for total enjoyment! At first I bought the small box to try, but ordered the 100 within a week so I wouldn't run out :)

          Surprisingly delicious!

          Posted by Laurel on Apr 11th 2016

          Now, I was a bit wary about this tea, having never tried rooibos before. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how smooth and crisp it was. The earthy flavor of the rooibos is nicely countered by the sharp, grassy sweetness of the lemongrass. I'm a fan! (Note: If you add a ton of sugar like I do, it'll taste like Froot Loops. You might not like it as much as I did!)

          My Nephew lives in Long Beach CA and somehow got a hold of this and sent it to my sister as a gift and I fell in love with it so I ordered me a box of 100 and I couldn't be more happy. Also love the Alpine Berry so much too!

          Keep up the great work

          Posted by Mrs. Tucker on Aug 8th 2013

          What a great cup of tea. Rich flavor and aroma. I bought a sample box for my self and my mother. When I called to ask if she enjoyed her tea it was: "why didnt I get these before?" We both agreed the African sunset was the best. Where have you guys been!? Look forward to trying more of your teas.

          Exotic flavor

          Posted by Erin on Aug 8th 2013

          I really do love this tea! The first time i tried it, it had such a wonderful and exotic flavor. Almost hard to describe. This tea is perfect in the afternoon and livens up your day. Not only does it taste good, it is also quite good for you. Try it!

          My stress just melts away in the few minutes I spend sniffing the aroma as I sip from my mug. Some added honey makes it smell and taste even more decadent.

          Earthy and rich

          Posted by bess on Aug 8th 2013

          the lemongrass enhances the earthy richness of the rooibos. It's a pleasurable experience sipping this cup of tea. :-)

          The red bush tea from the #1 Ladies Detective Agency stories is sweet invigorating tea. Perfect for cold winter afternoons.

          Switching from Chai to this.

          Posted by Geri on Aug 8th 2013

          I recently ordered a cup of this tea at an exclusive restaurant. It is the smoothest tasting tea that I have ever tried. Plus it is caffeine free. I am changing my morning cup of tea from organic chai tea to this tea. Placing my order now. :^)

          Absolutely my favorite

          Posted by Eric on Aug 8th 2013

          Absolutely my favorite tea ever! I thought your Mountain High Chai was the best, now it is a close second to this tea! Lovely, full flavor that, being decaf, I can drink all day and evening! Love, love, love it!

          Best cup of tea ever

          Posted by Jonet on Aug 8th 2013

          Just returned home from lunch at an upscale restaurant. On this cold, rainy day, I ordered hot tea and was treated to the best cup of tea I've ever had. African Sunset is smooth, moderate in strength and absolutely yummy. I couldn't wait to get home and order a case. You've got to try this tea kids!

          Great caffeine-free alternative

          Posted by Jack on Aug 8th 2013

          I'm supposed to cut down on caffeine and tanin, so I have been drinking African Sunset in lieu of my favorite Assam. This is a wonderful tea, I love it!
