Rooibos is especially high in two polyphenols, including one that is only found in rooibos called Aspalathin. It was also recently identified as a source of superoxide dismutase, a very powerful antioxidant.
This rooibos, otherwise known as red tea, is grown the Wupperthal Original Rooibos Co-operative in the Cederburg Region of South Africa, a democratically organized group of farmers who have been growing rooibos for generations. Pushed off their land in the 1800s, they have endured the apartheid era & struggled to reclaim their livelihoods & thrive on the fringes of fertile land.
Now they grow their tea in the rocky terrain of the Cederburg Mountains, which presents numerous challenges – though the slow growth of their rooibos produces a higher quality tea. Today, 98% of the world's rooibos is grown on plantations, making the Wupperthal Co-operative a unique example of alternative tea production.
