How did our story begin?
Let’s be clear, we love tea! Putting the kettle on is always the first thing we do in the morning and we don’t stop there. We enjoy cuppas throughout the day up until we turn off the lights for bed.
However, over the last few years, we started to notice a correlation with disturbed sleep and our daily tea consumption habits. So we decided to make a conscious effort to reduce our caffeine and employ a healthier approach towards our drinks.
We needed tea, but not the caffeine
Life wasn’t the same without tea. Drinking loose leaf tea was a social experience for us and gave us a moment for ourselves in the evening, after a tough day at work. We needed tea back, but not the caffeine!
As we spoke to other people about this, it became apparent that many others were wanting to reduce their caffeine intake for health reasons or due to medical advice (such as those going through pregnancy). Therefore, we wanted to make a positive difference to these people by providing more choice and delicious tasting caffeine free tea blends.
We developed our unique tea blends
At WILDBOS, we create delicious loose leaf blends that use naturally caffeine free rooibos, honeybush and herbal plants. These provide a wonderful taste for tea-drinkers who are looking to enjoy all of the health benefits of high antioxidants without the drawbacks of caffeine. So now, tea can be enjoyed all day and everyday!
The WILDBOS range was born!
The plants rooibos (redbush) or heuningbos (honeybush) are both native to South Africa, being grown in the Western and Eastern Cape respectively. These plants act as the base for many of our tea blends given their naturally caffeine free status so we wanted to ensure these key components were incorporated into our brand name. We chose the suffix "BOS" meaning bush in Afrikaans and teamed it with "WILD" to reflect the natural properties of these plants - WILDBOS was born!
Don’t be addicted to caffeine, be addicted to tea with WILDBOS!
