Local celebri-tea, Rooibos, makes it into Marvel Comics

It’s official! Rooibos has become part of popular culture. It recently made it into one of Marvel’s comic strips when psychiatrist, Flo Mayer, offered Jennifer Walters (also known as She-Hulk) a cup of Rooibos to calm her down.

American media and entertainment giant, Marvel Comics, isn’t an easy medium to break into, however local celebri-tea, Rooibos, received a mention in the most recent edition of She-Hulk when psychiatrist, Flo Mayer, offered Jennifer Walters (also known as She-Hulk) a cup of Rooibos tea to calm her down.

Adele du Toit, spokeswoman of the SA Rooibos Council (SARC) said it’s a testament to how increasingly popular Rooibos has become worldwide.

“Global consumption of Rooibos is at around 15 000 tons per annum and the demand for the product continues to grow. It’s fast becoming a popular choice among a variety of herbal teas around the world,” she said.

She added, “The fact that the author has Mayer offering Walters a cup of Rooibos to calm her nerves, after the confrontation with a villain, called The Leader and his pawn, Professor Robyn Meiser Malt, is right on the money. Research done by several academic institutions, including Stellenbosch University, proved Rooibos tea’s ability to alleviate stress and anxiety levels.”

“Who knows what the future holds for Rooibos. Soon it might even be featured in a scene of one of the upcoming action-packed Marvel movies. Perhaps it’s just the antidote that Bruce Banner needs to tame the raging Hulk inside,” she concluded.
