Organic Honeybush Loose Leaf Tea is grown wild in the Langkloof Mountains of the Eastern Cape of South Africa, Honeybush will delight your senses with its natural sweetness and honey like taste.
First catalogued by Botanists from the Dutch East India trading company in 1652 when they discovered African tribes in the region drinking the tea, Honeybush is no longer a secret and international consumption is growing at a rapid rate.
We are the biggest fans of this amazing tea and would really like to keep it to ourselves but decided Honeybush was just too good not to share. The only thing it has in common with black tea is the way it is processed: – harvested, cut, oxidized and dried, turning from green to dark brown while developing sweet aromatic qualities.
Honeybush is high in antioxidants and naturally caffeine free making it very restful and ideal for nighttime consumption. It also contains Pinitol which is a modified sugar said to help lower blood sugar levels.
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.
Prepared like tea, these gems contain no tea leaves. All blends are caffeine-free, except for the Mate. Use boiling water, (Mate should use water at 176) infusions can be steeped up to 10 minutes depending on personal preferences. All teas are sold in 2oz packets from which 20-25 cups of tea can be brewed, unless otherwise noted.
Store in a dry place.
