A Swedish botanist Carl Thunberg first saw the people of the Cape of south Africa make a tasty aromatic drink from the needle-like leaves of the wild plants specifically the Roiboos plant. After harvest the plants were chopped up with axes and then bruised with heavy implements, the leaves would left to ferment before drying in the sun.

Rooibos seeds are planted during February and March. They are tended for 18 months, Upon summer harvest the leaves of the plant are trimmed and bruised ready for oxidisation, which much like the fermentation of tea allows the leaves to develop.
A green rooibos with a lighter, drier, flavour can be made from the same plant without undergoing the oxidisation process


With a soft fruity sweetness, hints of Malt and Orange, Good Hope is refreshing and packed with health benefits, it's a favourite mainstay for the converted and a must for the not-yet-enlightened.
