What is Rooibos Tea
While many of the ingredients found in this blend may remind you of the cold, winter months, Rooibos tea is grown in the Cederberg Region of South Africa, where temperatures can reach upwards of 40C in the summer! Thriving in some of the world’s harshest conditions, the Rooibos shrub is capable of surviving the interchangeable weather patterns of South Africa whilst also providing the produce we all know and love today. Its flavours are completely unique and have been enjoyed for centuries by the native Khoisan tribes of the region.
Despite this, the cultural tradition of its consumption came under threat in the 18th Century, when European settlers encroached on the territories of the tribespeople, resulting in their dwindling population. In fact, Rooibos Tea was almost lost to the ages, if it had not been for a Swedish Botanist by the name of Carl Thunberg, who rediscovered the leaves in 1772 and revived a more widespread interest in the beverage.
Over the course of time, Rooibos tea rose in popularity, and in the early 20th Century, exports were extended to the farthest reaches of the globe as intrigue in this distinct tea-like drink spread. The industry likewise saw a spike in sales during the Second World War, as many Western Nations turned to South Africa while Imperialist Japanese Forces occupied many tea-growing regions on the Asian continent.
A similar instance occurred over 20 years later, in 1968, when a South African mother and Doctor published a book on the incredible Health Benefits of Rooibos Tea Consumption. Soon, health-conscious members of the public were flocking to this wonder-brew while countless Scientific Studies continued to confirm Dr. Annique Theron’s findings. Today, Rooibos Tea remains a very popular beverage with demand increasing by fifty percent in recent years alone.
