This rare and stunning Rooibos comes from a small, isolated town called Wupperthal in Cedeberg province South Africa. This is the only area in the world where Rooibos grows wild, and in South Africa, over 98% of the Rooibos crop is cultivated on large plantations. Producing this tea is what supports the local community in Wupperthal – few other crops can be grown on the land due to poor soil and extreme weather conditions. The Wupperthal Original Rooibos Co-op was founded in 1990 to better regulate the industry and market prices. It has had a fantastic effect on the community who are going from strength to strength. The flavour of the wild Rooibos is much richer and maltier than regular Rooibos. It also has beautiful, deep dried fruit flavours.
