What’s the deal?
This tea is indigenous to South Africa and was introduced to the world when the Cape’s resident Khoisan pastoralists introduced the ﬁrst Dutch settlers to the healing herb. The early Khoisan chewed the fresh or dried leaves or made infusions to heal a wide range of ailment and injuries. The Khoisan believed Buchu was an elixir of youth and it is widely used today as a general tonic to promote physical well-being.
