  • Kettle 212°F
  • Timer 5 Min

Honeybush is a caffeine-free plant from South African. It has a wonderfully sweet and slightly astringent flavor with undertones of honey. With the addition of citrus fruits it makes a great iced tea in the summer, or hot soothing brew in the winter. This herbal blend is best steeped at 212° at 1.5 tsp/cup for 5-7 minutes.

Extra Info:

Honeybush is native to the Cederberg District (the Eastern Cape) of South Africa. Dutch botanical records from the area make mention of Honeybush consumption as far back as the mid to late 1600's. The first mention of the consumption of Honeybush as a caffeine free tea substitute outside of South Africa however appeared almost 200 years later.

A pharmacological handbook published in the US in 1898 entitled "King's American Dispensary of 1898," makes mention, under the heading "Tea," of Honeybush as an acceptable tea substitute manufactured in the Cape Colony of South Africa.

Ingredients:

Honeybush, lemongrass, myrtle, rose hips, eucalyptus, hibiscus, safflowers, marigolds & orange flavoring

Origin:

South Africa
