The country of origin of the “red shrub” or Rooibos Bio is South Africa. The natives used this redwood to make a fruity and sweet tea, long before the Europeans. The branches of the shrub are dried in the sun, and then cut into small pieces.
Rooibos was first exported to distant countries in the nineteenth century, and its export has continued to grow ever since. The result was a controlled cultivation of the once wild shrub. High-quality Rooibos can be identified by its ruby color and the sweet, characteristic and aromatic taste.
