(ROY-BOSS) Rooibos organic tea is our herbal brew . The "Red Bush" plant is Aspalathus linearis, not Camellia sinensis.
Rooibos is typically known for its delicate aroma and sweet, nutty flavor. The liquor is a deep red-orange.
Unlike black teas, the plants are cut, bruised and heaped before the first fermentation (oxidation) and before the leaves are dried. Green Rooibos is less oxidized (fermented) and is dried immediately after harvesting. Both are caffeine free.
With archeological evidence, dating the South African Koishan tribes back 2,000 years, it is not known, but only assumed that they brewed the red bush, as the Chinese brewed the green bush Camellia sinensis.
In the late 18th century, the Swedish botanist Carl Thunberg reported that South African “natives” drank red tea from a needle-leaf plant for health reasons.
As with green and black teas, the Dutch greatly commercialized the tea as a cheap alternative from both Chinese and Indian teas.
Around 1900, tea expert Benjamin Ginsberg perfected mass production, adapting the Chinese method of using barrels and wet sacks to promote and control oxidation. The technique is similar to the processing of yellow tea.
Export of Rooibos began as well as expanded cultivation in South Africa.
