Ingredients & Lore

blended with rooibos tea, apple pieces, chicory, dark chocolate chips (contains soy lecithin), cinnamon, cocoa nibs, natural caramel flavor, golden pecan flavor, marigold flowers and natural chocolate flavor
The first Europeans to come into contact with pecans were Spanish explorers in what is now Louisiana, Texas, and Mexico. These Spanish explorers called the pecan, nuez de la arruga, which roughly translates to "wrinkle nut". Thomas Jefferson planted pecan trees, or Illinois nuts, in his nut orchard at his home, Monticello. George Washington reported in his journal that Thomas Jefferson gave him "Illinois nuts", which Washington then grew at Mount Vernon, his Virginia home.

farmer
How long have you been growing tea?
32 years. I started working as a laborer on a neighboring Rooibos Farm and for the past 14 years I have been growing Rooibos on my own farm.
What got you started in the tea industry?
I grew up on a Rooibos Farm. After I left home, I worked on different farms producing a wide variety of agricultural products, but my love for Rooibos and the area in which I grew up brought me back home. Since I was a small boy, I dreamed about owning my own Rooibos Farm and 14 years ago my dream came true with the help of my previous employer who helped me to loan money to purchase my own Rooibos farm.
Can you describe a typical day out in the field? How many hours would that be?
During Harvesting season (January - April), I leave home at 05:00 in the morning to turn the Rooibos fermentation heaps on the drying yard. I then go to the fields and start harvesting the Rooibos. At 10:00 I return to the drying yard to open the fermentation heaps and spread the Rooibos thin and evenly to dry. I then continue harvesting till we break for lunch at 12:30. After lunch (14:00) I take the harvested Rooibos to the drying yard for further processing. After cutting and bruising the tea is put into fermentation heaps around 18:00. After that we collect the dried Rooibos from the drying yard. My day ends at around 19:30. A typical working day is around 13 hours during harvesting season.
