Sweet rooibos and chamomile welcome us gently in their embrace, preparing us for bed. Sweet cocoa rinds and vanilla sing a lullaby, while warm spices like cloves, ginger and black pepper tuck us in. The true essence of this infusion is: "Sweet dreams".
Rooibos, belonging to the Leguminosae family, has been grown until today only in the South African mountains of the Cederberg. The plants, up to two meters high, are harvested only once a year.

Chamomile, white and pinnate with bright yellow flowers, was considered sacred by the Germans and the flower of the sun god Ra by the Egyptians. Everyone knows the characteristic scent of this herbaceous plant. The flowers have a slightly bitter and pleasantly delicate flavor.
