Dried leaves and twigs of Dicerothamnus rhinocerotis

Origin - Wellington, Western Cape

Flavour Profile - resinous

Rhino bush was traditionally infused in brandy or wine and used as a medicine for indigestion, dyspepsia, ulcers and stomach cancer. Rhinocerotinoic acid identified in Rhino bush has significant anti-inflammatory activity, which would explain why, according to oral tradition, it was a popular remedy during the influenza epidemic of 1918. The young tips of the branches are used for infusions and the cedar-like flavour is derived from a resin constituting up to 20% of their dry weight. As a tea infusion Rhino bush makes a great tonic with an unusual flavour that grows on one.
