Issued by PR Platform on behalf of Joekels Tea Packers - Mar 1st, 09:37
Leading tea brand Laager Rooibos has announced its exclusive celebrity agreement with Lebo and Tebo Ndala from food blog withlovefromthetwins.
Born and bred in Pretoria, Lebo and Tebo are qualified chefs and food specialists who have appeared in television cooking shows and magazine features. They also write their own food blog withlovefromthetwins and are constantly creating innovative and flavourful recipe ideas and entertaining tips which they share with their followers at pop-up events and on their digital and social channels.
When asked about their association with tea, Tebo states, “Growing up we always had tea in the house but we really started appreciating the flavours, aroma, and brewing of tea when we were studying chefmanship in College.”
We all know that drinking tea is considered an art form and everyone has their own preference but for the twins, it is simple as Lebo explains, “As tea lovers, we don't take sugar or milk with our tea, we like it as it is… Nothing beats the simple and refreshing taste of Rooibos. Tea in our household is always a moment to savour with a pot of Rooibos or black tea accompanied by home-made scones or pastries.”
“We are really excited to have Lebo and Tebo on board as they perfectly embody Laager’s essence with their love for family and respect for time-honoured traditions. Lebo and Tebo are true South Africans who love Laager Rooibos as much as we do, and who have some amazing Rooibos recipes to share with our Laager fans. We are excited that their blog, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter following will heighten the visibility and awareness of Laager Rooibos in South Africa," states Marketing Manager Candice Sessions.

This heritage month, iconic South African Rooibos brand Laager is celebrating being a household name since 1945 with the launch of 2 new flavoured Rooibos-based products.
With the biggest teabag in South Africa, the fastest growing Black tea in the country, and the second biggest Pure Green tea on the market (less than a year into launch), Tetley continues to surprise and impress South Africans with its quality blends and affordable pricing.
Once a niche drink for the health obsessed, Green tea has moved into the mainstream with many regular South Africans “Going Green”, as awareness around the health benefits of Green tea grows. It’s no surprise then that Green tea is growing faster than any other type of tea in South Africa, with volume growth of 19% and value growth of 38% (retail data, 2016 vs. 2015).
Laager Tea4Kidz has launched a new Peach & Apricot variant onto the market, driven by a growing demand for fruit flavoured options in the Kids Tea segment, as well as a Facebook poll where fans voted in Peach & Apricot as their preferred new Tea4Kidz flavour.
