Story, Folklore, History...
History of Rooibos:A virtually unknown herb until the mid 19th century, Rooibos was brewed for centuries as an herbal remedy by the Khoisans South African Bushmen. Knowledge of the properties of this herb almost vanished as environmental changes caused the Khoisan population to dwindle, although its use was reported by a botanist in the late 18th century, and eventually began to be traded at Mountain Tea in the early 20th century.
