The cultivation of the red leaf tea seeds was perfected by Dr. Peter Nortier, a Rhodes scholar. Since the seeds were originally hard to find and grow, Dr. Nortier paid local farmers for their seeds and encouraged these farmers to begin cultivating the plant as a cash crop for the Klein Kliphuis farm. The most expensive seed in the world market was then born, and is enjoyed today around the world for an average cost.
