Where is Rooibos Tea from?
Rooibos grows in the ruggedly beautiful Cederberg coastal mountains of South Africa, a protected World Heritage site around 200km north of Cape Town. It flourishes in this area because of the unique combination of climate and the specific PH balance of the region’s well-drained, sandy soil -- all attempts to grow Rooibos beyond the magnificent Cederberg have failed.

Do Tick Tock Teabags contain plastic?
All Tick Tock teabags are fully plant-based and biodegradable, and most importantly, free from polypropylene and all other petrochemical plastics. Because they are fully biodegradable, you can put these teabags in your Food Waste bin for composting by your local council. These teabags were the result of months of research and testing, and as a small family company we are going to constantly work to improve our packaging further.
