The botanical (scientific) name for the Rooibos plant is Aspalathus linearis. The plant (and the products made from it) is widely known as Rooibos (pronounced ROY-BOSS). In some countries, it is also called ‘redbush’ or ‘African red tea’. Rooibos is a fynbos species within the Cape Floral Kingdom, one of only six recognised floral kingdoms of the world.
