Experience a taste of South Africa’s botanical heritage at a Fynbos Tasting in the historic Company’s Garden in central Cape Town.
Fynbos (fine bush-Afrikaans/Dutch) is the name given to a family of 6000 plant species that are indigenous to the southern tip of the African continent. The terroir produces highly aromatic and uniquely South African flavors intensified by harsh climatic conditions.
You’ll be guided through a tasting of eight Fynbos botanicals starting in their most essential form as a herbal tea infusion, then sweet cordials, progressing to aromatic vinaigrettes and infused oils along with edible naturals and seasoning salts, culminating in soothing digestives accompanied by sweet treats.

We really enjoyed the experience, we felt so connected to this South African unique treasure, and as we smell the dried plants we took home it still reminds us of the beauty of the wonderful Cape landscapes! Giselle told us lots of interesting facts about fynbos with all her passion and we enjoyed tasting it in some of its forms (infusion, distillate and salad!)
Really uplifting and fascinating insight into the beauty and medicinal benefits of the Cape Flora fynbos. Brilliantly presented with exquisite attention to the detail and thoroughly enjoyable. Many thanks to Giselle and we would love to come back to do the apothecary course.
Enjoyable experience delivered by a friendly, knowledgeable and charismatic host. I learnt much about fynbos and it was great to be able to smell, touch and taste the plants. The experience is located in a lovely public garden.
