Rooibos is the Afrikaans for Red Bush and Rooibos leaf has been used in one form or another in South Africa for thousands of years.
It only grows in the Cederberg region and despite many attempts it has never been grown any where else in the world.
Although it is totally caffeine free it contains many of the same polyphenols as tea, which are thought to be beneficial to health.
