Our Background

Only the best quality


Blomfontein Rooibos roots can be found way back just after the second world war in 1949 when the Nieuwoudt family bought the farm Blomfontein which only consisted of a small part of land just under 600 hectares. They lived around a spring that is still on the farm farming with vegetables, sheep and harvesting the little Rooibos that grew wild in the veld. It was not until 1970 that Rooibos was commercially planted and harvested on the farm Blomfontein. Fast forward some 48 years and Blomfontein transformed into a 4th generation tea farm consisting of 6000 hectares of land and 1500 hectares of Rooibos Tea fields being worked by newest technology tractors with auto steer and green energy powering the drying facilities and giving work to 15 families all year round and up to 50 families in certain months of the year.
