The autumn colours of rooibos

Posted in Country: South Africa by François-Xavier Delmas | Tags : ,

The tea plant is an evergreen and its leaves do not change colour when the cold weather pervades after the summer. So, to bring you some seasonal autumn colour, I have chosen an image of rooibos leaves drying on the ground, spread out in very thin layers, oxidising after being watered.
