Honeybush is a delicious relative of the Rooibos family, which grows in the Eastern Cape region of South Africa. The name derives partly from the sweetly rich scent of the honeybush flower. While it shares the same health benefits as rooibos (including high antioxidant levels), it tastes a bit sweeter, spicier, and more full-bodied. Honeybush lovers say it helps with blood sugar, colds, and more.
Honeybush is a caffeine-free botanical—not a true tea—endemic to South Africa. When you brew a cup, you’ll use oxidized stems and leaves, which taste honey-sweet, with floral notes and a slight roasted quality. The finished brew tastes rich and hearty, with a velvety mouthfeel. In addition, when you brew this tea, the wonderful aroma pervades the air and makes your house smell like honey.
For a sweet, aromatic beverage any time of day or night, drink honeybush!
