Scrumptious to the last, this Rooibos Tea is, quite simply, a desert in a cup!
The name ‘Rooibos’ is actually a translation from the Afrikaans language, meaning ‘Red Bush’, and can likewise be known as ‘bush tea’ or ‘red tea’. It is grown in the Cederberg Region of South Africa, where it has been enjoyed by the Khoisan tribes – the indigenous population of the area – for hundreds of years.
During the 18th Century, as European colonists began to encroach on Khoisan territories, the cultural tradition of Rooibos consumption was under threat, along with the population of the tribespeople themselves. If it had not been for the rediscovery of the leaves in 1772, we might not have had the same beverage we know and love today!
By the early 20th Century, however, Rooibos tea was back and bigger than ever with exports reaching out across the globe as intrigue in the brew spread. In fact, during the Second World War in particular, Rooibos reached record levels of consumption, for its time, as importing normal tea from the Asian continent became almost impossible due to the Japanese Occupation of many tea-growing regions. This placed a massive strain on the Rooibos market with the demand far surpassing the availability. During this period, Rooibos Tea rose in price due to the scarcity of the plant.
In the 1960’s, Rooibos Tea rose to fame once more after a South African mother by the name of Annique Theron published a book on the health benefits of the blend. Soon, many members of the public with health-conscious attitudes were flocking to this wonder-brew as countless Scientific Studies confirmed Dr. Theron’s findings. In recent years alone, Rooibos demand has increased by more than fifty percent; making it one of the most up-and-coming teas on the market!

Health Benefits of Rooibos Caramel Tea

It comes from the Aspalathus Linearis plant, rather than the Camellia Sinensis Plant; meaning it is not technically a ‘tea’ at all! Despite this, Rooibos Tea Benefits can offer many of the same benefits as your favourite tea blend, and maybe even more! These include antispasmodic properties, healthier skin, stomach cramp relief, and even boosting the immune system!
