Rooibos Limited: Learning about
the production process of Rooibos tea

Since its establishment in 1954, Rooibos Ltd has become the single largest producer and distributor of Rooibos to the local and international markets, supplying over sixty countries around the world, with no less than six billion cups of this remarkable beverage being drunk every year.

Rooibos is produced from the plant Aspalathus linearis, a leguminous shrub unique to the Cederberg Mountains around the town of Clanwilliam and indigenous to the Western Cape of South Africa. It forms part of the Cape Floral Kingdom, commonly known as fynbos, and grows nowhere else in the world.
