Pure Loose-Leaf Rooibos, South African Red Tea

Loose-leaf rooibos, with rich red color, looking like small pieces of stem and needle-like leavesView Full Resolution

This photo shows a close-up of loose-leaf pure (red) rooibos. The leaf looks a lot like wood chips or mulch, which makes sense as it consists of needle-like leaves with some twigs mixed in.

This is a crop of the original work.
