The term ‘Rooibos’ is Afrikaans for ‘Red Bush’, a South African shrub; only grown in the Cederberg mountain region of South Africa. Also known as ‘bush tea’ or ‘red tea’, Rooibos is actually produced from the Aspalathus Linearis plant instead of the Camellia Sinensis plant; meaning it is not technically a ‘tea’ at all! Despite this shocking secret, Rooibos Loose Leaf Tea has been nurtured by the tea industry for almost 300 years.
Before the 18th Century however, this unique blend had been used by the people of the Khoisan tribes for herbal remedies until European settlers threatened their way of life. For a time, it seemed Rooibos might fade from history until a botanist by the name of Carl Humberg rediscovered the leaves in 1772. The brew was subsequently revived and soon accumulated an even more widespread interest than before. By the Second World War, Rooibos tea was heavily relied upon in the western hemisphere as importing normal tea became increasingly difficult.
So, from its humble beginnings as a tribal beverage, Rooibos Loose Tea has since exploded onto the market with its popularity increasing every year.
