The story of Rooibus or "redbush" tea starts around the turn of the century in South Africa's beautiful Cedarberg region. It was the locals of the area who first discovered that the fine needle-like leaves of the wild "Aspalathus Linearis" plant made a tasty aromatic tea. They began to harvest these plants and during fermentation the leaves turned red. Rooibus is high in antioxidants and nutrients such as iron, calcium, potassium,copper, zinc, magnesium, fluoride and sodium. Whether flavored or not it makes a very full-bodied cup.
