Premium grade rooibos tea with pure Madagascan Bourbon vanilla extract
Dragonfly Rooibos is the naturally caffeine-free tea. No chemical processes are needed to extract the caffeine.
Compare the caffeine and then choose: a cup of coffee contains up to 138 mg of caffeine. A cup of black tea contains up to 69 mg of caffeine. A cup of Dragonfly Rooibos contains absolutely no caffeine.
Even better, its distinctive, gentle sweetness is deliciously soothing.
Packed with minerals, high in antioxidants and flavonoids, Dragonfly Rooibos is also low in tannin, making it less bitter than a conventional black tea.

At Dragonfly Teas we consider that the way crops are grown is intrinsic to the well-being of everyone.
Working with nature to achieve the best quality with little or no chemicals involved is in our view, the way things should be.
The demands of the modern world for more; faster; better has resulted in short term exploitation of the land and the people who work it, with no thought for the future.
So we prefer to do things differently.
We believe that it is important to respect the relationship to the land of those who patiently grow our food (often under great hardship).
We are aware of the difference that the ancient country artisan traditions of food–making can make. Traditions that are thankfully still used today to create high quality teas and other foods, such as fine wines and local cheeses.
There are reputedly up to 8,000 different hand-made teas in China. They are part of a 1,500-year-old tradition. These are disappearing rapidly through mechanical and chemical intervention. The world has plenty of poor quality teas with very few of high quality on offer. This is because of lack of consumer awareness of the rich heritage of taste experiences produced by the smaller artisan tea-makers.
Dragonfly Teas is pledged to bring these teas to the discerning palate and in so doing, help to keep alive the traditions and skills that have created them.
We believe strongly in the ideals of the Slow Food movement, which is growing fast throughout Europe. We think it is important that every country has a dynamic small-scale agricultural food production sector. It ensures that rural people are rewarded for their efforts and helps to stop the depopulation of the countryside.
We also support non-political Fair Trade that campaigns to ensure we pay fairly and as directly as possible to the farmers with as few intermediaries as possible. This means that more of the profits end up directly in the hands of the communities that grow the crops.
