Buchu, has a distinctive sweet, lemony fragrance and is unique to South Africa. The botanical has been part of the indigenous culture and heritage for centuries. Its earliest documented use was in 1652, when the Cape’s resident Khoisan pastoralists introduced the first Dutch colonists to the healing herb. Then it was an extremely scarce and expensive commodity– a mere thimbleful could be exchanged for a sheep. Now you can enjoy it in a 100% pure, organic tea bag.

Buchu is a natural diuretic and is a valuable source of vitamins A, B, C, and E, as well as numerous minerals, antioxidants and disease-preventing flavanoids.
