The Romans first recognized the herb lavender: it was infused in their bath water and its name is derived from lava, meaning 'to wash' Lavender is grown extensively in Southern France, principally in Provence and if you are lucky enough to tour Provence you will find evidence of the Romans as there are many archeological sites of Roman ruins. The story of Rooibos on the other hand starts around 1900 in South Africa's beautiful Cedarberg region. It was the locals of the area who first discovered that the fine needle like leaves of the wild '''Aspalathus Linearis' plant made a tasty aromatic tea and it was they who first harvested the plants, chopped them with axes and bruised them with hammers leaving them to ferment before drying in the sun. Cedarburg's micro climate and coarse sandy soil are perfectly suited th this unique species of plant. Unique lands around the world are often only found in certain areas and it is only in South Africa's Cape Province that Rooibos is an herb that. Contains no caffeine and those that consume Rooibos have claimed that it has a soothing effect on headaches, disturbed sleeping patterns and digestive problems. Rooibos seeds are planted in February and March and tended for 18 months after which they are harvested & manufactured resulting in its characteristic flavor & sweet aroma.
