Organic Honeybush Tea
Organic Honeybush Loose Leaf Tea is grown in the Langkloof Mountains of the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Our Organic Honeybush Tea will delight your senses with natural sweetness and a honey-like taste.
Botanists first cataloged the bush from the Dutch East India trading company in 1652. When they discovered African tribes in the region drinking the tea, for instance, they investigated. Honeybush is no longer a secret; in other words, international consumption is growing rapidly.
We are the biggest fans of this amazing tea and, similarly, Chocolate Honeybush. Local Tea Company wants to keep these herbal teas to ourselves, but they are too good not to share.
The only thing in common with black tea is the processing: harvest, cut, oxidize and dry. The bits turn from green to dark brown while developing sweet aromatic qualities.
Honeybush is high in antioxidants and naturally caffeine-free. The brewed tea is ideal for nighttime consumption. It also contains Pinitol, which is a modified sugar said to help lower blood sugar levels. Read this post on Honeybush and this post on Chocolate Honeybush.
A spot of honey will enhance the natural character but is not necessary. This tea is definitely best served hot. 20 to 25 cups of tea can be made from 2 oz of loose leaf tea. We also suggest steeping our Honeybush multiple times for even more cups of great tea.
