How It Tastes

This signature rooibos tisane blend teems with tropical fruit and blossoms. Rich and delicious, this popular herbal tea blend makes an excellent after-dinner drink paired with sweet desserts or chocolate. Alternatively, drink a cup in the morning for a lively non-caffeinated alternative to black tea.  Naturally caffeine free.


Organic African Nectar is made primarily from rooibos, the so-called 'red tea' of South Africa. Rooibos only grows in the Cederberg Mountains of the Western Cape region - attempts to propagate it elsewhere have never been successful. This simple shrub's leaves have been harvested, oxidized, and enjoyed for centuries by the local people, but rooibos was not exported in volume until the late 20th century.

My go to for non-caffeinated teas when I am not looking for something fruity and sour. It's a comforting cup. I like to drink it plain, at night when I'm trying to relax, and/or especially when I'm reading.

I've been working at Mighty Leaf Tea for almost 5 years. On my first day I discovered African Nectar. Ever since then I have a cup of this great tasting tea every morning. It's my favorite.

I have been enjoying Organic African Nectar since I started working at Mighty Leaf Tea in 2006! It has such a rich and distinct flavor and I enjoy "treating" myself in the late afternoon with a cup. I am so glad that Peet's is now selling Mighty Leaf Tea online and in their stores so more people can experience Mighty Leaf's variety of flavors and classic tea blends.
