Rare Herbs

Certain herbs from Asia and Africa are among the most widely used and time-honoured teas, highly valued for their special properties. However, according to the Novel Food Regulation, teas that have not been consumed to a significant degree by humans in the EU before 1997 may not be sold as a food product in the EU unless authorised, resulting in a loss of centuries of experience from other countries and cultures. We therefore offer the rare herbs listed here only as scented herbs, potpourri or smoking materials.

Laboratory Tests

We go to great lengths to identify the finest organic tea farms across the world’s most celebrated terroirs. All our teas are sourced directly from the farmer and, with a few exceptions, are certified organic or come from pesticide-free farms. Each batch of tea for every harvest is tested for pesticides and other pollutants in an independent German lab to ensure they meet our strict quality standards as well as HACCP food safety requirements.

Cultivation & Processing

Buchu (Agathosma betulina) is a plant native to South Africa that belongs to the Rutaceae family. The plant grows into a small bush with light yellowish-green leaves and white and pink flowers. Buchu can often be found growing on the sandy hills in the steppe region of South Africa.

Our buchu is directly sourced from the Cederberg Mountains of South Africa. Known for thier unusual cliff formations, the Cederberg Mountains are home to the indigenous San people. The region is named after the rare cedar trees that grow there, and is famous for its breathtakingly beautiful cliffs as well as prehistoric rock paintings of the San people, who have a long history of cultivating plants such as buchu, cancerbush, and rooibos. The relatively large volume of precipitation that the region receives in the winter is stored in the limestone soil and supplies the rooibos plants with sufficient hydration during the hot summer days, which can reach up to 48°C. In the months of spring, the otherwise austere landscape bursts into a dense sea of wild flowers, which attracts tourists from all over the world.
