A bushy plant native to South Africa, rooibos (Aspalathus linearis) literally means red bush -a rather apt decription, as the leaves, which start out a succulent shade of green, turn an earthy red colour once processed. They are plucked, oxidized and dried, then infused in hot water - in a similar way to the tea plant. You can also get unoxidized rooibos tea, sometimes referred to as green rooibos, although it is much less common. Rooibos tea has been enjoyed in south african for many years and was first commercially processed in the 18th century.
