Rooibos Day

Have you heard? The latest exciting development for Rooibos is the first Rooibos Day, which takes place on 16 January, 2017 and will be celebrated in Clanwilliam, the Rooibos Capital of the world. Part of the gathering involves setting a new world record, where the most people ever have a cup of Rooibos Tea at the same time!

The festivities are to take place at the Augsburg Landbou Gimnasium from 6 PM - 10 PM, with gates opening at 5 PM. There is no admission charge for the event, and the first 500 visitors to arrive will receive a coupon, which they can hand in at any of the stalls to receive a product, drink or gift.   Visitors can expect an exciting variety of merchants, products and exhibits. The only prerequisite? Everything must be related to Rooibos!

Lovers of a good old cup of pure Rooibos tea can look forward to stalls with products by Rooibos Ltd, Khoisan tea, Carmien Tea, Kings, Biedouw Valley Rooibos, Ou Huis, Marice and The Storytellers.

For individuals who have a deeper thirst to quench, there’s plenty of adventurous options to choose from. The craft beer brewery Stellenbrau is showcasing its Rooibos-infused beer, while craft cidery Windermere is selling a Rooibos Apple Cider. Klawer Wyne is offering an African Ruby Vermouth. There will also be Rooibos slush puppies and Rooibos ice tea with a kick. Share the way you enjoy Rooibos on Rooibos Day with your friends on social media.
