I drank my first Red Capucchino in South Africa in 2015. The taste, the effect, everything fascinated me. Back in Germany I wanted more of it - but Rooibos Espresso wasn't available anywhere here.
Further trips through South Africa showed me that the variety of Rooibos products there is almost endless.
In 2019 I went to Clanwilliam. A town in the Cederberg Mountains area, considered to be the home of the rooibos.
At the entrance to the village I found the Velskoendraai Farm Stall, a charming farm shop with produce from the region.
There was not only Rooibos tea in all flavors, but also Rooibos soft drinks, bread spreads, pastries and cosmetics.
I had never seen these products in Germany. The idea for a Rooibos webshop was born.
