Belinzona is the registered name of a farm situated on the Matzikama mountain, close to Vanrhynsdorp in the Western Cape. They produce exceptional quality Rooibos tea products. Their vision is to not only ensure optimal and sustainable production of Rooibos on the farm, but also envisage further beneficiation of Rooibos.
Rooibos is indigenous to the West Coast region of South Africa and can only be grown here. The Mediterranean climate, rainfall, and sandy soil provide for the only area in the world where Rooibos grows naturally. Therefore, the Rooibos plant (Aspalathus Linearis) can be cultivated in harmony within its natural habitat.
Belinzona Rooibos tea grows in a slightly colder climate due to the high altitude of the Matzikama Mountain range with naturally more fog and higher rainfall. This contributes to the flavor and quality of their Rooibos when compared to Rooibos grown at lower altitudes. Natural spring water on the farm is used for irrigation of the nursery where Rooibos seedlings are grown and during the fermentation process that is used for Rooibos tea production. The exceptional quality of this sustainable spring water enhances the quality and taste of Belinzona Rooibos tea. The water has the potential to be integrated into some of the beneficiation processes.
Belinzona received its organic certification in 2018 which enables them to focus on healthy products that are free of any harmful chemicals. This strategy is also aligned with global trends. Belinzona received its Rain Forest Alliance Certification in 2019.
