Our colour range, Fevertree, is inspired by the array of colours this tree displays here in Africa.
The distinct green-yellow bark allows this particular tree to stand out across southern Africa. It is part of the Acacia trees, bearing thorns and is also covered in fine dust.
The thorns of the tree are straight and long and come in pairs. They are very significant when the tree is still small, but become less noticeable as the tree grows.
It was Malaria, not the tree!
European travellers that used to camp under these trees would become sick with high fevers and they thought that it was the trees that caused these fevers. It wasn’t until much later that they discovered they had malaria, obtained through the many mosquitos that were also in the area.
By then the myth was already born and the trees became known as Fever trees.
Did you know?
There are also other interesting facts about the fever tree such as that the bark of the tree was used for medicines for treating fevers and eye infections. The roots are also powdered up for the treatment of malaria.
Our colour range, Fevertree, is inspired by the array of colours this tree displays. From the shade it gives to the African sunlight it reflects.
There are few other trees that are so distinct in its appearance, and so would your choice of products be in this colour range. Distinctly African.
