Honeybush are grown in the mountains of South Africa. The plants has honey-like sweetness and aroma, that's why it's called"Honeybush". Like our Rooibos Tea, it is unique in South Africa with high nutritional value and naturally caffeine-free.
Honeybush tastes like the sweetness of mixed roses and honey. The composition of tannic acid is low, and long-term brewing does not affect the taste.
The fact that it’s caffeine-free, sugar free and contains no calories is very beneficial – drink as much as you like and it won’t rev up your system, give you the caffeine jitters, raise your blood pressure, interfere with your sleep patterns or make you put on weight.
What’s the best way to brew Honeybush?
The standard method is to steep the tea in boiling water for 4-5 minutes. You can leave it in the water for longer to create a stronger and more flavorful beverage – this won’t produce a bitter aftertaste because it’s much lower in tannins that regular black tea. It’s also great for re-steeping - you can drink a cuppa and then add more water to the teabag, two or even three times!
You can also cold brew it (just steep in cold water for about 12 hours), or steep in cold water in a pitcher that you leave in the sun for a few hours then chill and add ice.
