The History of Rooibos Tea

The Rooibos tea plant is a unique wispy bush found only in a small part of South Africa’s South Western Cape region. The tea made from an infusion of the prepared leaves has been enjoyed for centuries as both a beverage and a health tonic by the local indigenous population.

In 1904 this unique flavorful and healthy beverage was "discovered" by Benjamin Ginsberg, a Russian immigrant and early settler in the area. He realized that the tea would be enjoyed by and provide health benefits to people far and wide. He therefore started to prepare and market the tea. In 1930 a medical doctor, Dr P. Le Fras Nortier discovered that Rooibos tea had value as an agricultural product. However, due to the unique properties and requirements of the delicate plant, cultivation has always required the farmer to remain close to nature. The plants thrive best when virtually left to their own devices in the natural soil of their origin.

From 1995 the Rooibos Board stopped acting as a Control Board and dissolved. The market opened up. More producers and exporters established themselves increasing the penetration of Rooibos tea in the world markets.
