Tucked away in the Cederberg Mountain Range in the Western Cape is the small village of Wupperthal, the birthplace of rooibos.

Following in the footsteps of their forefathers, they’ve preserved Wupperthal Rooibos cultivation rituals for generations, making Wupperthal Rooibos 1830 the country’s best-kept secret.
