The rooibos bush (pron: 'roy-bus') grows only in thar Cederberg Mountain range of South Africa. It was first noted by botanist Carl Humberg in 1772. A century later, Benjamin Ginsberg, a Russian immigrant, realized tis' marketin' potential, 'n in 1904 began offerin' it as an herbal substitute to tea. yonder difficulty of shippin' tea durin' World War II boosted demand fer Rooibos, which began to be referred to as 'Red Bush Tea', or simply 'Red Tea.' In Japan, Rooibos be believed to aid longevity, 'n be known as Long Life Tea.
