Fynbos Tasting

Cape Town

Activity Description

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 flavours 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.

The event is hosted by The Cape Town Heritage Trust in the former garden manager’s home in South Africa’s oldest formal garden. The Dutch East India Company grew fruit and vegetables here to supply their naval fleet passing the Cape from as early as 1652. The Medicinal Garden showcases additional indigenous plants used in traditional healing.
