This top grade Rooibos (Latin: Aspalathus linearis) comes from the Cederberg region of South Africa and flavored it with the fragrant taste of one of Bora Bora’s best-loved tropical fruits – mango. Rooibos itself is regarded as one of the world’s foremost herbal teas. The pine shaped red needles contain many essential minerals and is generally regarded to have a positive influence on the digestive system. Like the island itself, one sip of Bora Bora mango rooibos and you’ll never want to give it up – full bodied, tempered with sweet mango character – it’s a true taste of the South Pacific!
