It's been more than two years though. I'd say it's not likely.

I blend it with my kombucha - it's my favorite so far.

Actually wow, yeah, that would be quite interesting. Have you tried putting JUST the rooibos in there instead of regular tea to see if it has the nutrients that the culture can use? That could be an interesting side experiment; take a chunk of your scoby and put it into a sugar-rooibos mixture and try and maintain it on just rooibos.

I had always thought a sour Rooibos Red would be interesting; you could either add Rooibos to a Flanders Red, or similar to your idea, you could siphon off some Rooibos kombucha, kill the bugs in it with heat or campdens, add it to a basic ale/lager, then carbonated with the lager/ale yeast. OR, you could inoculate a lambic wort with a scoby for a low alcohol lambucha. xD It may finish sweet if the scoby can't eat all the malt sugars but a complex sweetness wouldn't go astray.

Rooibos tea pairs well with kombucha. For years my grandmother only used rooibos tea for kombucha. The kombucha grew very well on the tea. I cannot remember how much tea she used though.

I did a rooibois cream ale, where i brought a quart of water to boil and sanitized a box of rooibois tea.then stuffed the tea bags and poured tea in secondary.. Beer was excellent. Very pretty color.
