Rooibos is also called “bush tea.” Rooibos is in fact a shrub with yellow flowers that grows naturally near Cedar Mountain. Although this shrub can grow as tall as half a meter to a meter, this plant is usually harvested at a height of 20 cm during the period January through March.

The needle-like leaves are green when picked. Then the leaves are bruised and wetted, triggering a chemical fermentation process. This creates the beautiful dark red color, after which the needles are placed in the African sun the next day to oxidize further. For this reason, rooibos is also called “red tea” in addition to “bush tea.”
