Celebrate our home-grown superfood at the Rooibos Experience this month, set to take over the Root44 Market in Stellenbosch on 28 and 29 April 2018.
Sip on Audacia’s “no sulphites or preservatives added” red wine, created using Rooibos and Honeybush toasted wood chips. You can also taste Stellenbrau’s Rooibos-blended lager, the Woodstock Gin Company’s Buchu and Rooibos-infused gin, and Rooibos tea kombucha – a natural tea fermentation, which has been perfected by Brew Kombucha. Larry Berger will also be hosting several masterclasses to promote his award-winning aperitif, the Spirit of Rooibos, which was first distilled in a steel water geyser.
Non-alcoholic beverages will include Rooibos smoothies, Uber Flavour Brews, made from Rooibos and 100% fresh fruit juice, and Theonista’s top-quality Rooibos iced teas.
Still your hunger with sugar-free, organic and unsulphured dried fruit and vegetables that have been rehydrated in Rooibos tea using an innovative process patented by RedBushed Fruit. Meanwhile meat-lovers can enjoy Bay Biltong’s range of Rooibos flavoured cured meats.
Beauty lovers can try products from Annique and African Extracts, as well as the all-natural skincare products, balms, soaps and foam baths from Red Cedar. Sanguru’s detox blend, Teatox, works to remedy bloatedness, gout and constipation, blending together indigenous, organically grown hand-harvested Rooibos and other Karoo herbs.
A wide variety of loose leaf teas, beautiful teapots and accessories will also be for sale by The Tea Merchant.
And finally, don’t miss The Nuwe Graskoue Trappers, who belong to a group of “Riel” dancers from Wupperthal. Their dances aptly reflect the culture and traditions of the people who come from the Cederberg region where Rooibos is grown. See them in action on Sunday, 29 April at 1pm.
Entry is free. Arrive nice and early to make the most of the day (they host a brilliant Parkrun at the farm).
