  • Tea Notes

    Rooibos (Aspalathus linearis) is also known as “Bush Tea” or “Red Bush Tea”.  It is in the legume family and has a broom like structure.

     

    The rooibos plant is grown only in a small part of the western coast of South Africa.  Attempts to cultivate it outside of South Africa have all failed due to a symbiotic relationship with local micro-organisms.

     

    Rooibos has been cultivated for centuries; first by the local people, then by Dutch settlers who drank it as an alternative to black tea.
